From the street, Atlanta house-scouts would probably expect to find the usual Craftsman-style arrangement within this newly built four-bedroom in Candler Park: kitchen tucked in a back corner, an ample butler’s pantry, maybe a coffered ceiling or two.

But that is not the case here.

Instead, what’s promoted as a “Modern wrapped within a Craftsman shell” takes open-concept and contemporary minimalism to the max, aiming to complement the neighborhood while standing out with a clean aesthetic inside, per the listing.

The house stands at the cusp of Candler Park, a few blocks east of Little Five Points. Listed this past weekend, its $929,000 asking price (and not-ginormous 2,434 square feet) breaks down to an ambitious goal of $381 per square foot. Without a garage. Or fence.

Back inside, the dry bar off the living “room” is a nifty touch, and both this area and the pretty kitchen bleed into a large, screened porch.

Upstairs, find a barn door (to hide the laundry), a roomy masters retreat, and much to love for carpet enthusiasts.

The parking pad is accessed via a gravel drive, which abuts a yard of pine straw. Meanwhile, around back, there doesn’t appear to be much yard (or privacy) to speak of.

But then again, a cherished municipal greenspace is a Frisbee’s toss away.
