A WSJ “House of the Day”

The Atlanta home of Washington and Lee alumnus and trustee Robert Balentine, of the Class of 1979, and his wife, Betty, was featured last week as the Wall Street Journal’s “House of the Day.”

The online version of the Journal features a dozen photographs of the 10,500-square-foot stone house — a replica of a classic English Cotswold manor — that Robert and Betty restored. It was built in 1929 for a former president of the Georgia Power Company.

Robert told the Journal that all of the stone used for the exterior was quarried from Georgia’s Stone Mountain. When he and Betty expanded the home in 2005, they wanted to match the look and went back to Stone Mountain for the stone.

Robert heads the investment advisory firm Balentine L.L.C.
