In Brookhaven, This Perky Dutch Colonial wants $875K

New, 13 comments

Nobody would call Dutch Colonial a prevalent style in Atlanta, but when houses in this vaguely barn-like mode do surface, they're usually something special. With an $875,000 asking price, this handsome new-construction looks to join those ranks. It's being finished near DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, where Brookhaven blurs into Chamblee, and the highpoint could be the outdoor patio with a brick fireplace — where a buyer could ostensibly watch private jets pass by — that flows into an airy family room with something called "butt boards" on the ceiling, per the listing. Flowing, in fact, seems to be the objective of these 3,150 square feet, with four bedrooms and plenty of marble spread around. A buyer could boost the square footage by finishing a stubbed and plumbed guest suite above the three-car garage. A few days after listing, the price was nipped by $900, which doesn't exactly spell dogged motivation to sell, but it could indicate wiggle-room.
