Loft hunters of Atlanta in the market for that decadently decaying aesthetic just might find Eden here.

Cavernous rooms punctuated with borderline gothic chandeliers, walls of ancient brick, stained concrete, and ceilings that harken industrial times are on full display in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at Cabbagetown’s historic Stacks Lofts.

Maybe it isn’t the most refined offering the Stacks hath produced lately, but at 2,100 square feet, it’s certainly one of the complex’s largest.

A pioneering adaptive-reuse property, the 500-unit landmark building was originally a 19th Century cotton mill. Transformed into lofts in the 1990s, it withstood a wicked fire in 1999 and a tornado nine years ago.

This roomy piece of it, marketed as “truly one-of-a-kind,” listed today at $525,000, which breaks down to a not-neurotic $250 per square foot.

Girded by immense windows, a raised “bonus room”—which could function as an epic home office or, say, racquetball court—sets this place apart, especially because 400 square feet of storage space hides beneath it.

Elsewhere, the updated, expansive kitchen has hard-surface ‘tops for miles. The open-walled bedroom situation might not be for everyone, but at least both bedrooms have closets with custom systems.

For condo shoppers who consider “vastness” a top priority, this place should check boxes. Even the laundry room looks like it carries echoes.
