Briarcliff Road building dates to 1930

A condo basement in Virginia-Highland Atlanta.
That rare condo basement.

Here we find a unique condo arrangement at Virginia Hall, a boutique community in a stately 1930 building a few blocks from Virginia-Highland’s commercial strip.

Listed a month ago, this Briarcliff Road residence is actually two units combined, forming what the listing describes as a townhome. It spans an impressive 2,394 square feet (comparable to a four-bedroom intown house) but manages just two bedrooms alongside its three and 12 bathrooms. (At least that’s the official count, per listings).

It’s a mix of parquet-floors vintage and revamped modern convenience (the kitchen’s pro-grade appliances), dashed with unexpected flair (bold chandeliers — duck!). Much of it is the antithesis of open-concept, but some folks like that feeling of being coddled.

Since listing just after Halloween, it hasn’t budged from $429,000 — a price tempered by $670/month HOA fees. Records show attempts to move it at $450,000 were unsuccessful earlier this year and last.

One highlight: The huge basement level with its brick bar and sunken living room, a rarity in Atlanta. Also cool: the balcony patio’s ornate columns.

The listing touts this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to bag a home that’s “impossible to replicate,” but nobody’s taken the bait thus far.
