For $1.3 Million, 1920 Conventional is Strikingly Modern Inside

New, 16 comments


Leave it to Ansley Park to offer a $1.35 million property that's large and stylish without being gaudy. The subdued exterior, terracotta roof and uneventful stoop of this 1920 conventional-style home belie the strikingly modern — if not minimal — interior. Its 3,200 square feet are chockfull of stylish midcentury furnishings and an understated paint scheme that makes the contemporary art pop and beige-haters cringe. The listing agent is on the money in calling the marble master bathroom "deluxe," and the private bedroom balcony doesn't hurt, either. The smart, dual-sink kitchen has custom cabinetry and a wet bar. A whopping five sets of French doors lead to a carriage house and lush landscaping but, regrettably, no pool. The location here on South Prado, which is one helluva cool street name, includes easy walkability to Piedmont Park. And that, coupled with proximity to Midtown, makes the relatively low Walk Score of 60 a bit perplexing.
