Not far from the Eichler-esque, midcentury showpieces of places like Northcrest and Doraville, Buckhead has no shortage of sizable—if not sprawling—homes built in the middle decades of the last century, where sheer space doesn’t always overwhelm what made them cool in the first place.
The latest example, built in 1968, listed earlier this month on Buckhead’s prestigious Londonberry Road. It’s a voluminous (but never cavernous) double-decker girded by Japanese maples that’s said to promote tranquility in a zip code with coveted schools.
A Berkshire Hathaway reps describes the 4,811-square-footer as an “incredible midcentury modern that has been restored to perfection,” which means MCM purists might be in for a shock.
The interiors by Pineapple House are a slick showcase of what’s hot in 2017 decor, from the wavy custom fireplace tiling to the kitchen’s double-dose of Bosch dishwashers and the master suite’s steam shower.
Elsewhere, find wide-plank oak flooring and more traditional slate tile that makes appearances in unexpected places. Like a wall.
Other modern-day perks include motorized blinds and controlled audio and lighting throughout. Generous back decks overlook the tranquil backyard, with its babbling creek and mini-bridge.
The home counts four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Asking is $1.15 million.
