Expensive houses tend to put their best foot forward with stellar curb appeal to lure in potential buyers. A midcentury rambler in Buckhead, listed for $810,000, is trying a different approach with a ton of first-glance mediocrity. But what this 1960s ranch near Chastain Park lacks in initial pizzazz outside, it compensates with a pretty stellar interior. The retro vibe is alive and well inside the home, with amazing vaulted wood ceilings with skylights, a sweet sunroom and totally-60s stacked-stone fireplace. Out back, there's a Japanese garden — no word if the koi are included — and a large pool on the nearly half-acre lot. And while the kitchen and bathrooms could use some updating, overall the four-bedroom, three-bathroom abode isn't half bad... if you can look past the snooze-fest facade.
