A groovy three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has hit the market in Midtown, ready to transport buyers back to the 1960s. Designed by noted local architect Henri Jova — famous for such landmarks as the Carter Center, the former AJC building on Marietta Street and the Carnegie Education Pavilion — the 2,592-square-foot blast from the past is located just south of Piedmont Park, nestled between Midtown and Virginia-Highland. The listing photos show a dramatically lit gathering room, great for any "discerning entertainer," with a wide assortment of classical furnishings complementing the clean lines of the home. The courtyard, with outdoor dining, fire pit and fountain, is ready for entertaining and will appeal to those who hate mowing grass; it eschews greenery for more modern-looking concrete and black pebbles. Listed for $974,900, the home has been upgraded in the last year and features an elevator, house-wide audio system and a brand new kitchen. Walking distance to Piedmont Park, the Beltline and plenty of restaurants, the home is ready for anyone seeking intown digs with a sleek mod vibe.
