High within the Hanover House, an early 1970s Colony Square building that some consider a landmark, we find this $595,000 "townhouse in the sky" that the listing agent calls a "jaw-dropping … masterpiece." Superlatives aside, this is a unique, bi-level property with most of its 1972-ness purged out by recent renovations. The views don't quit, and for nearly 2,000 square feet and three bedrooms, it would hardly qualify as the priciest Midtown condo within a few square blocks. And the listed HOA fees ($100 monthly, unless that's a typo) would not be a hindrance. The electric window shades and marble floors are ritzy touches, and the half-spiral staircase with a hidden storage room beneath is just spiffy. But like the funhouse infinity mirrors in the master bathroom, the steely countertops, backsplashes and electric range in the kitchen might perturb some buyers. The layout might not have the openness of its modern counterparts, but that could be all the more reason for going outside: With Piedmont Park, MARTA stations and a bounty of dining options nearby, this condo's Walk Score is an eye-popping 89.
