Sweet Mother of God, This House has Gigantic Barn Doors

New, 10 comments

Over the last couple of years in Atlanta, sleek and simple "modern farmhouses" have cropped up in urban places nobody would mistake for rolling pastures — East Atlanta, Edgewood, Reynoldstown and so forth. Now, in a place nobody's calling a gritty urban neighborhood, this oversized Serenbe residence has taken the modern-farm concept to another level, offering what could be metro Atlanta's largest sliding doors not associated with airport hangars. The price is $1.25 million, and the three bedrooms aren't many (although each is a master suite), but the modernized-barn concept, combined with 4,000 square feet overall, allows for rustic grandeur in spades. Highlights include the double-sided, double-TVed fireplace, which divides the main living space, and the generous screened veranda, which overlooks the saltwater pool and a lake beyond. It's a little ironic that such a rural-focused property has nothing but urban-style street parking, but Serenbe seems pretty anti-garage.
