A few doors down from Atlanta Memorial Park, this six-bedroom looker on a Haynes Manor corner lot is marketed as a “rare opportunity in one of Buckhead's finest neighborhoods,” and it certainly offers unique style for buyers with appetites for massive domiciles.
The stylishness begins here on Montview Drive with eye-catching landscaping and the streamlined automatic entry gate, which opens to a three-car garage that’s borderline beautiful.
Built in 2014, the property listed this week just shy of $2.4 million. The exterior presents a European hard-coat stucco and a cedar-shingle roof with a triple dose of dormers and columns not out of place in the American South.
Throughout the 6,340-square-foot interior, it eschews ornamentation for restrained simplicity that’s somehow both modern and classically elegant. The iron windows and high-end casements are a sleek touch.
For a property this grand, the tight backyard is something of a downer and such a squeeze it could prevent the addition of a (necessary) pool.
On the bright side, perks include a swoon-worthy master closet, the marble-rich chef’s kitchen, 14-foot ceilings on the main level, and a cozy, finished terrace level.
One room after the next (in addition to the screened porch with fireplace and TV) looks hardly used. And its trendier aspects were cranked up to 11 when one dining-room wall combined shiplap with the barn-door approach.
That’s right: shiplap barn doors!
