This 3,287-square-foot open-concept house in Midtown has dropped its asking price twice in the last five weeks — from $750,000 to $719,000 and now down to $699,000. The reason might just be its inconsistencies. The three-bedroom home is a study in contradictions, modern and airy in some places, dated and odd in others. The listing refers to it as "traditional meets modern," but "weird" might be a better way of putting it. The soaring two-story ceilings in the dining and living area are lovely, as are the hardwoods and convenient location (it earned its Walk Score of 80 for easy strolls to both Piedmont Park and the restaurants and amenities of Peachtree Street). The awkwardly enormous lavender bathroom with no door, odd kitchen layout and dated wallpaper trim are, well, not so lovely. Nosy housemates can peer down onto the dining/living area from the loft-style TV room and one of the bedrooms, which seems cool until such point that it seems creepy. There's also a screened-in, covered porch area overlooking the fenced but small back yard and a sunroom. Will $699,000 finally sell this unique house?
