Primed to party, this 1953 property has been featured in TV, film, and music productions.

Nestled between Cheshire Bridge and Briarcliff roads, this reimagined 1953 property serves up a unique configuration with the house itself and grounds that are nothing short of spectacular.

The four-bedroom pad is the personal residence of an unspecified Atlanta builder, and it’s being marketed as one of LaVista Park’s true modern masterpieces, with one of the grooviest backyard scenes to blip the listings radar in ages. (It’s not often, outside the lavish modern estates of Buckhead, one finds a cabana beside the heated pool, Jacuzzi, gate house, and synthetic turf).

Counting 2,908 square feet and minutes-walk proximity to the LaVista Park greenspace, the home has played host to many TV, music, and movie productions over the years—including, we’re told, Disney's Million Dollar Arm and a recent Janelle Monáe music video.

The renovation by Portico Atlanta—the same firm behind this Pine Hills redo—has chocked the place full of upgrades and a bright, clean, distinctly modern feel. (See: quartz counters, custom cabinetry, and an artful master bathroom buildout).

Another perk: The basement is finished. And stylishly so.

The single-car garage could be a sticking point, but the spacious corner lot appears to allow for plenty of uncovered, off-street parking.

Collectively, it’s an attractive package for buyers in the mood for a too-cool compound that breaks from the norm. The ask is $884,000.
