Few things pique the fancy of midcentury-modern zealots like telltale, A-frame curb appeal and an eye-catching entryway.
Those hallmarks are just the beginning with this updated four-bedroom listed at $729,900 last week and described in the listing as a “showpiece” home that achieves “the pinnacle of midcentury modern design.”
Sited among brick ranches and newer Craftsmans, the sloped-roof home has stood since 1955 in the ITP Meadowbrook subdivision where Buckhead meets Sandy Springs. More specifically, it’s tucked off Roswell Road, north of Buckhead’s business district, directly east of Chastain Park.
The highlighter-green front door welcomes visitors to an open floorplan of vaulted, beamed ceilings and what appears to be white-painted tongue-and-groove.
The property counts a beyond-spacious 3,600 square feet (at least per some listings providers). The beefy chimney provides two wood fireplaces, upstairs and down. And perky bathroom updates include a rare, above-toilet sputnik light
The asking price includes ample off-street parking and a flagstone front walkway but no garage or carport.
Around back, there’s a bi-level deck in the sizable backyard with a little pergola, curtained-off mystery space, and fire-pit lounge.
From back there, per the excitable listing agent, the upcoming summer months will be ample opportunity to relax while “thinking about how much you love your house!”
