Now finished on rapidly changing Morgan Street, this tri-level duplex is the first modern offering in what promises to be another eventful year (see: Willoughby Way) for contemporary residential architecture in Old Fourth Ward.
This project has been blipping the radar since the summer of 2015, when plans emerged for the replacement of a more traditional semi-detached dwelling on this relatively tight, sloped lot two blocks from Historic Fourth Ward Park and Ponce City Market. (Accordingly, the Walk Score clocks in at 84).
Now, the back half of this contemporary puzzle has listed for $769,000, offering four bedrooms and five bathrooms across 2,800 square feet.
Neighboring this resuscitated duplex, it’s marketed as a “handcrafted jewel,” with a dimension you don’t see every day in Atlanta: Next to the two-car garage, the ground floor includes a space with private entry (plus kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom) that could function as a rental, in-law suite, or basically anything else.
The chef’s kitchen qualifies as sleek, like all pictured bathrooms. And there’s no shortage of outdoor leisure options, highlighted by an immense rooftop terrace stubbed for a wet bar with “stunning views” that strangely aren’t pictured.
The listing assures buyers that “both homes [were] built with upmost thought and commitment to quality and design.” The husband-wife builder/architect team behind the project has dibs on the street-facing unit.
Initial plans called for a finishing date of early 2016 — and an asking price of $639,000. How things change.
