$1.6M Morningside contemporary from 1980s bags offer

Enthusiasm for vaulted ceilings required

A contemporary 1980s home in Morningside Atlanta.
Not your everyday Atlanta facade.
Engel & Volkers

This clean, crisp contemporary in Morningside dates to an era of skylights, heavily partitioned rooms, and glass blocks — and it seems to embrace all of that without coming across as badly dated.

Listed just shy of $1.6 million, the five-bedroom sprawler has succeeded in landing a contract, here on a quiet street in one of Atlanta’s most coveted nabes.

Built in 1988, the home spans more than 4,500 square feet, with a fondness for whitish walls, carpeting, and colorful tile. It’s a study in very large rooms.

Aside from a few inventive skylights, vaulted living spaces, and circular windows, the home’s modernness basically ends with the exterior. Aspects of the kitchen and bathrooms won’t qualify as cutting-edge, but not every buyer needs that.

The sprawling, manicured backyard seems lovely enough — and ready for the pool. The laundry room dwarfs some apartments.

The property last sold for substantially more — $1.84 million — in 2008, and it’s been on and off the market a few times in the last couple of years.

It listed at the current price in October.
