In Buckhead, A $1M Mid-Century Teardown Looks Like This

New, 1 comment


Leave it to Buckhead to feature a nearly $1 million home that comes with blueprints for its replacement. Despite a dated layout and walls that are mirrored in the worst way, there's still much to love about this 1962 behemoth on a thickly wooded lot in prized Tuxedo Park. Priced at $995,700, the existing home is nearly 5,300 square feet that the listing agent, to their credit, calls a "splendid, unique … contemporary gem" that could make for a swell restoration or teardown. In the same breath, they mention that a new home on this site might have to incorporate a 75-foot creek buffer (the current home sits smack dab on a "gentle creek.") Elsewhere on the 2.76-acre property is a flatter spot for a potentially large home. But what about the groovy pool area and gigantic great room with exposed beams? Should all this be wiped out for a clean slate, or is this place (especially at this price) worth resuscitating?
