New Morningside modern makes statement for $1.4M

Described as perfect for Atlanta’s most discerning modern enthusiasts

A large new modern home in Atlanta’s Morningside neighborhood.
Curb appeal that’s meant to be noticed.

This freshly built Morningside modern is more about standing out than blending inconspicuously in to its surroundings, which makes it the sort of statement piece some modern enthusiasts covet.

Marketed as having “a commanding presence on the street,” the four-bedroom, four-bathroom project listed this past weekend just shy of $1.4 million.

Per the listing, the striking exterior, appropriately landscaped grounds, and 3,500 square feet of detailed interior space “won't disappoint the pickiest modern aficionados.”

The latest work by Xmetrical, a firm behind a host of recent modern houses across intown Atlanta, this commander stands around the corner from the commercial node with Alon’s Bakery and Doc Chey’s Noodle House, which influences the not-bad 65 WalkScore.

Unlike the sloped front lawn, the backyard isn’t huge, though it provides style and social functionality with the built-in fire pit.

Inside, ubiquitous wide-plank hardwoods lend a soothing contrast to so much white, while eye-catching light fixtures—and staging artwork—inject many rooms with welcome pop.

The soaring, two-story great room is bookended by two living spaces. Combined with the master bedroom’s sitting area, this plethora of lounging options could trigger tough first-world choices on lazy Sunday mornings.
