Checking in With Three Boxy New Atlanta Moderns

New, 3 comments

It's no secret that new, contemporary-style residences are popping up across the Atlanta landscape, but not everyone has time (or cash) for a customized architectural wonder. Enter: the modern spec home. We've rounded up three examples from current Atlanta listings — in three different neighborhoods — with clean simple lines that echo each other. Another commonality: each is quite rectangular, and tall.


Price: $699,800
1382 Hooper Ave NE
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3.5
Square footage: 2,499

This tri-story Candler Park residence was first listed for $734,900 back in September and hasn't wooed the right buyer since. It stands one block from Freedom Park with a double-stack of back porches overlooking a private backyard. Note the lighting halos in the kitchen and master bathroom and the somewhat random presence of barn doors.


Price: $525,000
798 Stokeswood Ave. SE
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3.5
Square footage: 2,371

This under-construction East Atlanta listing is touted as an "exquisite" and "one-of-a-kind modern home." The highlight is probably the top floor's roll-up glass wall, which opens the indoors to a private rear "sky patio." Other perks: the marble fireplace and chef's kitchen with a five-burner stove.


Price: $550,000
1278 Hosea L Williams Drive NE
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3
Square footage: 2,600

The largest option on this shortlist can be found on Hosea Williams Drive in Edgewood, just off Moreland Avenue. The 2,600-square-footer is sprouting from the 1940 bones of an existing home on site. Renderings indicate the finished product with have a base of cinderblocks, a soaring back patio and flourishes of climbing plants.
