This Cool Midcentury Oasis in Buckhead Desires $848K

New, 11 comments


It's a testament to good design when the bones of a house nearly 60 years old can look this fresh. Beneath a butterfly roof and punctuated by cool geometries of windows, this 1958 looker in Buckhead's Pine Hills community was listed earlier this month for $848,000. Wedged between Lenox Road and Interstate 85, this custom midcentury modern isn't excessively humongous — 2,600 square feet — with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, but it's one of those cases where every square foot seems to count. The oversized windows, sleek screened porch and private courtyard off the master draw a thin line between indoors and out, all punctuated by a heated saltwater pool. If property records are correct, this gem sold for just $62,000 seven years ago, so either some seller was feeling recklessly generous, or a hat-tip-worthy renovation has happened since.
