Will Fresh Photos, Steep Discount Sell this Chastain Modern?

New, 3 comments

Once praised as the "most well-known modern home in Buckhead" and criticized for harkening a "high-end conference center," this hulking minimalist palace next door to Chastain Park has a serious case of can't-sell-itis. But maybe a recent price-chop of $151,000 and refreshed listing photos can change its fortunes. When the listing agent calls this house "sophisticated," they aren't kidding. It comes with a backup generator, heated hardwood floors from top to bottom, Creston automation for lighting and sound, a NanaWall of glass separating the interior from the lanai and Pebble Tec pool, a built-in Miele coffee system and exhaust fans above the stove(s) that could qualify as works of industrial art. Lest we forget the elevator that serves all three levels, which comprise nearly 6,700 square feet of living space, roughly twice the size of the Tesla dealership down the road. Originally listed in January 2014 for just shy of $3 million, it's undergone three significant slashes since, the last one coming in May. The new number is $2,599,000. That's the cost of living in, as listing agent Walt Whitman puts it, a residence "for those seeking minimalist design where form follows function; a home that honors art and the artist in nature."
