This House Aims to Break $1M Barrier in Old Fourth Ward

New, 8 comments

The sprawling grounds give new meaning to "privacy fence"

In the Old Fourth Ward, between Boulevard and Central Park, this bright-white villa on a private double lot is boldly aiming for the price-point stars.

According to Zillow data, no single Old Fourth Ward home has sold in recent years for more than $875,000, which is what a large new townhome overlooking Freedom Parkway fetched before Christmas. Several have traded in the $750,000 range.

But now, this 3,342-square-footer from the 1920s wants to push the bar way up — to $1.1 million.

Certainly the property is unique — with its 20-foot vaulted ceilings, six fireplaces, and saltwater plunge pool — but that number could be a tall task. The location isn't exactly Beltline-adjacent, and as configured, the home has just three bedrooms.

Throughout, this place has a regal air about it, and a true surplus of chandeliers. The Italian tile, arched entryways, and rough exterior finish (Craftsman stucco?), lend an exotic feel, which is punctuated by the El Chapo-grade brick barrier around the perimeter.
