What $1.5 Million Buys in Virginia-Highland These Days

New, 12 comments

Where saying, “Get off my lawn, you good-for-nothing bros!” won’t be necessary

Promotional language for this hulking new Virginia-Highland traditional assures buyers that it’s close enough to the neighborhood’s commercial village to be walkable — but far enough away that legions of inebriated bros won’t be an issue.

Promising "not to be impacted by nightlife parking," this 4,100-square-footer by John Willis Custom Homes has a lot going for it — for a price that serves as a reminder of how far in the rearview Va-Hi’s shaggy, bohemian days really are.

The $1.45-million asks bags five bedrooms and cozy facets like coffered ceilings, shipboard paneling, a rocking-chair porch, and a backside veranda with fireplace "to be enjoyed nine months out of the year," per the listing. (Excluding June to August, or December to February? Curious minds want to know).

Less necessary but nonetheless nice: Thermador appliances, an in-ground sprinkler system, and the Atlanta big-house standard that is formal and informal dining rooms.
