‘Legendary’ Loft-Studio Combo Overlooking the Beltline Wants $1.3M

Broker: Elton John, Lenny Kravitz, and others recorded here

What do Elton John, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Crowes, and Outkast have in common with the Atlanta Beltline? They all recorded music in this freestanding Midtown triple threat — a loft, office, and recording studio — that overlooks the city’s famed multi-use trail.

Loft hunters who pony up $1.3 million can now lay claim to that local musical trivia and this primo Dutch Valley Road location, at the cusp of Piedmont Park.

Built in 1955, this 2,400 4,800-square-foot structure was once home to the "legendary" Purple Dragon recording studios, where Sir Elton laid down his Peachtree Road album, according to Bull Realty.

It later became Nickel & Dime studios, as Creative Loafing documented in 2002, which has since decamped to Avondale Estates.

The ground floor is still configured as an office/studio, while upstairs is an artfully designed three-bedroom, two-bathroom loft by Brown Doane Architects.

Adds the broker: "This stylish space boasts large windows, a picturesque deck overlooking Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline, access to gated and covered parking, and a 200-square-foot climate controlled storage unit."
