For Atlanta buyers with mega-love for minimalistic contemporary design, but without mega-budgets of $600,000 or more, this three-story, modern-style new build a block from East Lake Golf Club could be a viable option. Sleekness is the order of the day among these 1,800 square feet, with floating vanities, handle-less cabinetry and designer lighting throughout. Perks include a waterfall quartz countertop in the kitchen, the stylish fireplace and polished concrete floors (for that industrial chutzpah) on the terrace level. The asking price of $379,000 bags three bedrooms and three and ½ bathrooms in a home that's not especially large, despite its height. It was listed a year ago for significantly cheaper ($299,000) and pulled, but with a volatile market, much changes in a year. The single-car garage could be a sticking point for some buyers, as could the lackluster 43 Walk Score, but with a mini retail renaissance planned for the neighborhood, the latter just might improve.
