This $1.9M Brookhaven Home Gets Medieval On Your Ass

New, 15 comments

Normally our "Hideous" posts feature homes from a reliable span of ugly — usually the late 1970s to the 1990s. Today's lucky winner is a relative outlier from that standpoint, having been completed as recently as 2009. While the exterior isn't especially obnoxious for a Brookhaven home, (although it's certainly not going to win any awards), the interior's another story indeed. Here's a home that takes overwrought to another level. The kneeling metallic pharaoh (always a harbinger of hideous) that greets everyone at the front door has a whole family living in the house ... let's just put it that way. Anything goes here, as long as it's carved, festooned, medieval or otherwise "fancy." Looking for a challenge? Try determining which sitting room wins the award for most visually exhausting: the one featuring massive furniture in a chaotic print topped with a crazily ornate carved ceiling and a mini-Chihuly fixture, or the other one endowed with scary red velvet settees and more dark depressing woodwork? Tough call. If this place sits on the market for a while, they could always promise to not include the window treatments in the deal. The ask, by the way, is $1.89 million. — By Curbed Atlanta contributor Jonathan Carnright
