The listing agent boldly touts this gated Francophile's dream as "the most charming house in Hanover West," a Buckhead community of roughly 100 homes developed in the 1960s, between Interstate 75 and industrial Northwest Atlanta. It's certainly the antsiest to be sold. One week after listing last month, the price was axed by $100,000 — down to $1.29 million. Perched on a hill and neighbored by Peachtree Creek, this five-bedroom manor from 1965 has an aesthetic of hardcoat stucco, cobblestones and vintage interior bricks that isn't all that common in Atlanta. It might take a powerful imagination to envision these 3,200 square feet purged of bathroom drapery, antique-store furnishings and wall plates, if that's not your thing. The rustic wood beams of various ceilings might smack as obnoxious, but the butler's pantry is loaded with essentials — beverage fridge, dishwasher, Maker's Mark. Around back, we find a vast patio in a forest, and the pretty side-yard seems plucked from the French countryside. The agent assures us the property is not in a flood plain, but they offer no explanation for the home's mustache.
