Agent: Buckhead Home is Creekside Oasis; Don't Mind Floods


Nothing induces buyer anxiety like a listing description that begins: "Thanks everyone for your interest —We are accepting offers until 7 p.m. (tonight)." Well, everyone had better line up to have a shot at buying this $750,000, European-style oasis on the banks of Peachtree Creek. It should appeal to buyers who covet tranquility, Buckhead schools, a hint of '80s flair (hello, vaulted ceilings) and plentiful dormers. In addition to the lush backyard, the five-bedroom home neighbors an eight-acre nature preserve that won't be developed for all eternity. "Yes it's in the flood zone," agent Kirsten Conover, of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, tells Curbed Atlanta. "But the house is in the 500 (not 100) year flood zone, and even in the floods of 2009, only the crawlspace had moisture." An interesting tidbit: Because the home is on the banks of Peachtree Creek, a homeowner doesn't actually own the yard — it's owned by the HOA, to protect the waterway from owners, Conover said. Guess that would explain the $1,620 HOA fees.
