Near Lenox Square, sleek four-bedroom from 1958 called “simply breathtaking”

A renovated midcentury modern house for sale in Buckhead’s Pine hills.

1185 Converse Drive NE

Along a leafy street of rolling hills around the corner from Lenox Square, this midcentury modern residence has undergone a renovation that’s both extensive and striking—without being sacrilegious to the original spirit of the house.

Priced at $948,000, this four-bedroom from 1958 occupies a lush lot in Pine Hills. From the long, low facade to the towering back windows, it’s undergone a crisp and clean reimagining by Bob DeFiore and Dan Campbell of Atlanta design/build firm Portico, which has prompted descriptions like “gorgeous” and “simply breathtaking” in the listing.

It clocks in at a hair shy of 3,000 square feet, with no shortage of soaring ceilings, intriguing room dimensions, and sleek built-in cabinetry.

The renovation packed on an additional master suite (up to modern-day standards) and family room to the original 1950s structure. A simple, airy, cool vibe abounds.

Adjoining a backyard the listing compares to a city park, the multi-level patio has several seating areas, each with sterling views of the back-side architecture.

Beyond Buckhead’s shopping, the listing touts access from here to Midtown, Virginia-Highland, and major freeways—one of which is actually working.
