The home has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and a two-level carriage house. Bidding will open at $100,000 and interested buyers can bid on site or live from anywhere at auctionnetwork.com.

With a beautiful columned front porch, second story balcony and back veranda, the home offers large areas for intimate gatherings and relaxed entertaining. Its picturesque entry foyer opens into a grand sunroom, which leads to a spiral staircase. The home features formal living and dining rooms, both with antique French chandeliers from the late 1800s, two master suites, an executive office, solarium and a large veranda that wraps around the back side of the house overlooking the tennis courts.

The carriage house is currently being used as an office upstairs and gym downstairs. The large open space with coffered ceiling on the second level has French doors that open to a balcony. The property also has two-car garages off the main house and carriage house.

Hollis Harris’ prestigious career spans more than 50 years in commercial aviation in leadership roles with some of the world’s largest airlines, including Delta Air Lines, Continental Airlines and Air Canada. As one of his many accomplishments, Mr. Harris is credited with being a co-creator of The Star Alliance, currently the largest airline alliance in the world.

Drawn to the city for its golf, Mr. Harris moved to Peachtree City when it was in its infancy and the population was close to 600. Now at a population of 36,000, this environmentally friendly community has a system of golf cart paths throughout the town providing a secondary means of access to almost any destination within city limits; many places of business have specially designated golf cart parking spaces.
