This late-medieval domicile near Oxford University ? wait, sorry, this storybook Tudor is actually found on East Paces Ferry Road, in the tony Peachtree Park neighborhood, billed as a "hidden treasure in the heart of Buckhead." This is the style Avondale Estates is famous for, and its unique 1940 exterior belies an interior that's surprisingly modern, thanks to noted architect Stan Dixon. For $850,000, an adventurous buyer gets five-bedrooms, a roomy 3,286 square feet, a "dream office upstairs," and a big green backyard with that most sellable Atlanta characteristic — flatness. The crown jewel is a third-floor suite that beckons everything from football gatherings to princess parties. While it's refreshing to see a historic property tactfully updated, the "cuteness" factor is probably off-putting to some buyers in this bracket.
