Three-bedroom with mighty windows and adventurous lines marketed as “stunning.”

Back in 2010, before modern mania swept intown Atlanta, this flat-fronted Ormewood Park residence must have seemed fairly radical.

Situated near the Grant Park border, a few blocks south of Glenwood Park’s eats and boutiques, the nontraditional three-bedroom serves up an array of windows beneath a line-graph roofline for $550,000.

Described as “high-quality contemporary design,” the interior offers unexpected curves (harkening 1980s postmodernism) that lead to a sleek kitchen, with one angle creating a too-cool nook for crafting libations.

The curves continue with the spa-rific master bathroom’s tub (and sinks). Also there’s the crescent-shaped driveway behind a motorized gate and non-privacy fence, which leads to a single-car garage.

The smallish back patio seems to be a victim of the home’s nonconformist stance on the lot, but it does boast sweet bamboo accents.

Other perks: gorgeous hardwoods, the built-out master closet, and finished basement that’d make for a swell studio or office.

The 2,196 square feet is adequate without being grossly huge, though some discerning Atlanta families could take umbrage with just two and 12 bathrooms.

Once a casualty of late-recession foreclosure, the property last traded about four years ago at $358,000, per records.

The 41 “car dependent” WalkScore is low, even by single-family neighborhood standards intown, but that number should quickly climb when the Beltline’s Southside Trail debuts in roughly 2023.
