Eccentricity abounds at the cusp of Piedmont Park

A lavishly purple condo in Midtown Atlanta.
Minimalists may want to avert their eyes.
Re/Max Metro Atlanta Cityside

For old-school eccentrics of Atlanta who prefer their living rooms with views, this decadently decorated penthouse at the edge of Piedmont Park could hit the sweet spot.

But for minimalists, this place is like a nightmare sprung to life. Artwork, potted plants, and lion statuettes adorn seemingly every nook. And a significant portion of it is purple. Like, Prince-level purple.

Redesigned and reconstructed from its 1988 bones, this top-floor unit at the Ansley Above the Park building counts 1,811 square feet for an asking price of $879,000. It does boast three true bedrooms and three bathrooms, which isn’t exactly common in Midtown.

Though it lacks seating and has but one small sink, the custom kitchen looks hugely expensive. The decadence hardly sputters in the bedrooms and updated bathrooms — with their extravagant mirrors, flashy toilets, and quarry’s worth of marble.

Elsewhere, this unit takes that faux, white mounted animal head trend to the extreme, with an entire herd of beasts surveilling the living room.

The plant-covered patio is fairly huge, if not deep, and includes sweeping views of Buckhead and the northern fringe of Midtown. That’s a stone-cold plus.

Another cost to consider: Zillow lists the HOA fees at $680 per month. Beyond utilities (ostensibly), that does include a sweet pool, storage unit, and ‘round-the-clock concierge.

But it doesn’t cover trips to Sherwin Williams.
