Mid-Century Modern enthusiasts could find their retro Shangri-La in the hills of Brookhaven. This sleekly renovated 1954 specimen occupies three acres just south of where Clairmont Road meets Buford Highway. The listing agent calls this four-bedroom, four-bathroom pad "an energy-efficient urban oasis," and the hardscaped front yard seems to support that. The low-slung façade (and funky front door) hint at the throwback wonders inside. Among these 2,742 square feet, cathedral ceilings, skylights and exposed beams abound, but in a way that feels current, with the addition of stainless steel and quartz countertops. Throughout the house, you'll find more clean lines than a Tony Montana house party. The lower-level in-law suite/full office/kitchenette dungeon is an unexpected, if slightly weird, touch. And the non-functional backyard and tiny deck could leave some buyers wanting. But with interior digs so seeped in retro cool, what's the use in going outside? The price: $495,000.
