While many new homes are touted as "green," this 1978 retro classic in the Mt. Paran/Northside neighborhood can best be described as red. The home, located near the intersection where Northside Drive and Garmon Roads turn onto themselves — only in Atlanta — is 1970s through-and-through. Angled walls, a raised living area and bedroom doors wide enough to drive a semi through (which oddly don't show up in the floor plans), make this four-bedroom, four-bathroom pad steep competition for a disco-down against 68 Muscogee Avenue. From the street, this place is an unapologetically rectilinear red box; inside, the soaring two-story living space is open, light-filled and banked by a wall of windows, which provide a great vantage to the dense foliage beyond. A home for lovers of contemporary architecture and trees, the $949,000 price tag is a cost-effective entree into the wealth-filled 30327 zip code.
