This well-preserved 1940 residence should appeal to Atlanta socialites who covet the ability to wave at neighbors from a Southernfried front porch that’s essentially a second living room.
In the tony Memorial Park section of Buckhead, this gut-renovated five-bedroom is boldly but accurately described as “immaculate” in the listing, which wagers this prediction: “This home will not last long!”
Listed late last week at $1,375,000, the property is punctuated by the most inviting, functional front porch to grace these pages in ages.
At 2,966 square feet, it’s not as large as it may appear from the curb, despite having three levels. In the finished basement (which might not count toward the total square footage), find a tasteful “man cave” with a wet bar, wine room, gym, and an art space for the kiddos.
Fun decor such as animal horns and bright-green, four-poster beds pop against so many white walls. More restrained highlights include the pretty hardwoods and French doors throughout the main level.
As if not to be outdone by the front porch, the ample back deck looks like a social haven, too.
