'60s Brookhaven Pad Is Freshened To Retro Perfection

New, 12 comments


A quirky collection of mid-century homes nestles near the junction of Clairmont Road and Buford Highway, including this freshly listed 1961 three-bedroom, two-bathroom vintage gem. Between the inspired renovations and the killer collection of retro furnishings, this could be the dream listing for anyone with a predilection for '60s cool. As an interesting tidbit, this guy's a true survivor; a 2007 development plan would have leveled the place for "luxury" garden homes, but alas a little real estate crash got the best of those plans.

Anyway, back to the house: It's not the most striking place from the street, but the tangerine doors and bamboo grove signal greater things inside. Obviously this renovator had a knack for melding old school with new. White marble floors provide an unexpectedly glamorous touch, and the kitchen's new but respectful. And can we say party patio? Style points go to the spiral staircase, leading to a presumed mancave/media room/don't-ask-questions realm. A lush and largely maintenance-free lot rounds out this fab offering, making it one of the most enticing Kennedy-era listings this side of BuHi. All yours for $340,000.
