A block from Piedmont Park, $1.8M Midtown compound touts exquisite everything

Designed to echo Normandy, 9th Street corner-lot property is for sale for second time in as many years.

A block south of Piedmont Park, this five-bedroom, corner-lot compound with French inspirations is marketed as being “stunning,” with top-flight finishes and millwork throughout.

Having been built less than two years ago, the place looks barely used, too.

Counting more than 5,000 square feet, this Normandy-style home rose from the ashes of a two-story Colonial that’d sold for $525,000 before the backhoes moved in. The project was a collaboration between JackBilt Homes and Jones Pierce Architects, and it’s certainly not run-of-the-mill Atlanta mega-house.

Now, with a $1.78-million ask, it’s currently the priciest standalone house on the Midtown market—and one of just a half-dozen asking more than a million bucks, which is somewhat surprising.

It sold for $200,000 less in early 2016.

For all the perks within, the highlight could be the stylish fireside loggia, which links the main house to a two-car garage that includes a private guest suite. Collectively, the side-yard pool and its covered and al fresco surroundings look exquisite—but these spaces are afforded very little privacy from the street.

Moving indoors, we find what the listing describes as a “perfect layout,” anchored by a rather gorgeous kitchen with what could be the coziest-looking breakfast nook in North Georgia.

The refrigerated wine towers (and monstrous beanbags) in the rec room don’t hurt. And the property scores an A+ for non-boring light fixtures.

The asking price might be a tall order, even for the primo location, but there’s much to admire here.
