Can Drone Shots Help Sell this Mammoth Midtown House?

New, 9 comments

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a marketing gimmick!

Listings can scream and shout that a property is "in the middle of everything" until their all-caps faces turn blue, but nothing really gets the point across like aerial robot photography. Especially when the goal is to emphasize proximity to a glittery skyline.

Maybe the trend of home-listings drone deployment will work for this beefy Midtown classic from the 1920s, which was renovated to the bones in 2013, largely to beautiful effect. Or maybe the aerials are overkill.

Beyond the walkability to Piedmont Park and loads of retail, highlights include the Themador kitchen, multi-level front porch, backyard fire pit, and the fact that all four bedrooms are ensuite. It clocks in at 4,000 square feet.

A drawback for some will be the pad-only parking situation. Though it might be possible to squeeze a garage back there, if one's budget allows for it after spending $1.22 million on the house itself.
