After Knockout Renovation, Brookwood Sprawler Seeks $1.8M

With just the right amount of 1935 left inside

Here's a style not all that common to Atlanta: From afar it looks like a Tudor adobe, or minimalistic English country barn. The listing puts it another way: "Old World charm meets today's modern luxuries."

With five bedrooms and a plentiful/unnecessary 4,500 square feet, this 1935 redo is perched on a hill in Brookwood, that relatively unsung place where South Buckhead meets Midtown, down the street from the hippy-dippy Peachtree Road Mellow Mushroom, an area loaded with gorgeous residences.

After two months on the market, it underwent a pensive reduction of $6,000 last month, nudging the price down to $1,789,000.

The home sold for $650,000 back in 2014, and the ensuing renovation by John Willis Homes looks strong, with an emphasis on large living spaces that embrace historical lines (see: archways) and elements like the exposed brick. It'd be hard to quibble with that covered porch overlooking the pool.

Also of note: Some forget that this neck o' the woods actually has existing Beltline access.
