Welcome to “one-level living at its best”

For Buckhead buyers who dislike steps—nay, really, really detest steps—this flapjack-flat midcentury modern is described as stepless, one-level living at its finest.

Contrary to that claim, the listing photos indeed show a step at the cabana and several inside the pool, which is mitigated by the fact there’s a cabana and pool.

The cool factor hardly ends with the cabana at this 1956 ranch, where the vaulted ceilings are beautified by beams and the fireplaces and chimneys ooze midcentury panache.

Down the street from the Governor’s Mansion, the location is described as one of Buckhead’s most desirable. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,390 square feet, the home isn’t huge for the area, which helps explain its sub-$1 million listing price this week ($825,000).

Highlights include the updated kitchen’s octagonal skylight, the multitude of large windows, and a pool sanctuary that seems surprisingly private and functional.

The downsides? The entry’s glass-block wall can probably go, along with a couple of non-load-bearing regular walls. Unless they’re original and doing so would constitute sacrilege.

And, well, a WalkScore of 7 here means you’d better have reliable wheels parked in that garage—or Uber on speed-dial.
