‘Sought after’ Old Fourth Ward modern townhouse is targeting $995K

Although near the Beltline and Krog Street Market, this 2016 three-bedroom could be pushing the limit with nearly $1 million price tag.

Sporting a brick-front exterior that could be described as restrained, classic contemporary, or rather lackluster, this 2016 townhouse overflows with the modern finishes and neutral colors boasted about in the listing.

AND about that listing: The owner reached out to inform Curbed Atlanta that the asking price of $995,000 was a typo, and the actual ask is $895,000. Does that change your opinion on this property?

After all, the minimalist approach is represented throughout the three-bedroom, three-and-1/2 bath home.

This is especially true in the self-proclaimed chef’s kitchen, which many chefs may find lacking in storage and cabinet space.

While natural light does abound in most rooms, those blinds installed halfway up the windows seem ill-placed, although they probably extend both ways. Likewise, the ceiling fans are aesthetically appropriate but somewhat stubby.

The two outside decks, though, provide wonderful opportunities for outdoor entertaining. The rooftop deck, especially, is a nice, versatile spot with its skyline views and covered lounge to escape the hot sun or a strong breeze.

The two-car garage, whole-house automation system, and location steps from Krog Street Market and the Beltline also are premium features for the property. Of course, around here, this all comes at a premium price.

One can’t help but wonder if the asking price of $995,000 is justified for the 2,421-square-foot townhouse. With one fairly recent exception (a standalone modern home), O4W properties that’ve fetched north of 900 large have been much, much bigger.

Perhaps, instead, the nearly $1 million price tag may illustrate the absurdity of price increases in recent years across the neighborhood.

Hello, kitty.
