The listing stresses that this Mathieson Exchange Lofts penthouse is a "rare find in Buckhead" and is worth every bit of $999,900 — a price that's much more palatable than $1 million. Indeed, units in this 16-story building of 100 condos don't often blip the radar, so the MEL must be doing something right. Right? Anyhow, as lofts go, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse is huge, boasting 2,650 square feet and all the usual accouterments of stainless steel, hardwood and granite. The plentitude of arched windows and walls of distressed brick make this place unique, though the look might not appeal to all buyers. The "multiple balconies" aspect is a nice touch. The MEL was built in a different era, back in 2001, when the neighborhood was synonymous with raucous nightlife. These 15th-floor balconies are like a front-row seat to the new Buckhead rising, even if the Buckhead Atlanta apartment towers are partially blocking the view.
