1970s Midtown Condo has Idiosyncrasies, $799K Price

After a month on the market, still no takers for rarified Colony House unit

Much has been said about the dearth of condo supply in Atlanta, so when a rare combined double-unit becomes available at a storied Midtown building — in a primo location that promises to get more attractive — one would assume it'd be snatched in a jiffy.

Such is not the case for Unit 1221 at Colony House, despite its enormous kitchen and vistas over Ansley Park to Buckhead. Designed by legendary Atlanta architect Henri Jova, the building opened in 1972, and at some point thereafter, someone conjoined two condos and added brands like Sub-Zero and Thermador — but strangely created just two bedrooms (plus a den), per the listing.

The idiosyncrasies hardly end there (see: the traditional-style fireplace and so much black marble). And it could be a red flag that the listing description specifies how HOA fees include all utilities and cable — without saying what the actual fee is.
