A wave of stunning, prospective modern homes has washed over the Atlanta real estate market lately, but none have had quite the primo location as this. Of course, with prime ground comes high cost, and the entry-point price of $999,000 here is double what other modern homes are asking in neighborhoods less established than Poncey-Highland. Another quality may nudge this above the others: It's designed by West Architecture Studio's Scott West, who's responsible for some fairly incredible modern properties around the Old Fourth Ward and elsewhere. At roughly 3,000 square feet, this four-bedroom residence — albeit a mere sample rendering — appears as visually titillating as anything the group has done.
The lot occupies a dead end street that branches off Freedom Parkway, about a block from Two Urban Licks. It's touted as follows: "Instead of settling for a home that is almost perfect, this home is absolutely perfect because you choose everything: Floor plan, Elevation, Appliances, Finishes, Landscaping, etc." The only quibble might be that, as is, accessing the Beltline from this property would require an awkward journey around Freedom Parkway and up the Ralph McGill Hill, or some other obscure route. Unless the sale includes a secret underground passage.
