At $735K, Buckhead midcentury modern is pricey diamond in the rough

Dwelling built in 1957, designed by son of first architecture dean at Georgia Tech

Even from afar, one thing is clear with this 1957 Buckhead midcentury modern: It’s got potential.

Listed at $735,000 (ouch), this four-bedroom, four-bathroom dwelling was designed by Henry Howard Smith — son and partner of Francis Palmer Smith (the first dean of architecture at Georgia Tech).

The listing boasts of it as a "renovators dream house with fabulous bones!!" That’s two exclamation points, folks, and judging by the photos, both earned.

The home sits on a half-acre yard with stone patios, surrounded by hardwoods.

Also worth noting: the sunroom on the main floor, 11-foot ceilings with exposed beams, and that old midcentury modern standby: the wall of windows.

Gorgeous place with lots of potential, but will the prospective homebuyer be willing to shell out 34 of a million bucks for it? Let's hope that price quiets any talk of a teardown here.
