If your idea of domestic heaven is a high-style Bauhausian complex with effortless Beltline walkability — well, you'd better strap on some angel wings and pony up $699,000. (If you prefer prim-and-proper traditionalism, prepare to be appalled.) Built in 2012, this European-style modern is the first Old Fourth Ward home designed by Dencity, a firm whose eye-catching, often grandiose contemporary designs dot the city. It's also probably the least alluring home in Atlanta for burglars, with its concrete lower jaw, commercial-grade steel and exterior walls of glass-and-fiber cement panels. Inside, you'll find more than a few wow-worthy moments among these 2,221 square feet. With its Poliform cabinetry and Miele appliances, the kitchen unfurls into the soaring living room, which embraces clean lines and relatively few embellishments, like almost every other space. The bathrooms are loaded with European fixtures, marble and onyx, and both rooftop terraces have 360-degree views. It has three bedrooms and a Walk Score of 77, which isn't shabby for a quiet intown street.
