Buckhead Midcentury Modern Starter Kit: $565K

New, 6 comments

1954 home to be sold "as is" — dated wallpaper, soot stains included

Sure, this 1954 ranch is a little rough around the edges. So it might help to think of it as a homebuyer’s very own North Buckhead midcentury modern starter kit.

The place is filled with the veritable ghosts of whoever lived there before — with its at-times unbearable wallpaper and sooty fireplace stains — but that’s the type of stuff gumption and a little elbow grease remedies.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,667 square feet, the not-huge home sits on more than half an acre of (somewhat overgrown) property.

According to the listing, it's surrounded by newer construction, and is to be sold for $565,000 "as is."

Is that a glass-is-half-empty way of saying "needs TLC"? Or the first toll of this old house's death knell?
