At this point, rooftop decks are like the new back porches in Atlanta.
The latest new-build residence to offer a requisite roof terrace with skyline views stands prominently on a corner in Summerhill, at the cusp of Phoenix II Park.
If our crack research is correct, this is Summerhill’s first $700,000+ listing in recent years—and possibly ever. No other single-family home has even sold in the $600,000s.
Clearly someone’s trying to capitalize on a wave of new retail bound for the immediate area and the slower metamorphosis of greater Turner Field down the street. Get-there-in-minutes proximity to downtown doesn’t hurt, either.
This is a large house (five bedrooms and 3,544 square feet across three levels), as proven by drone-provided context. The front facade emits an almost chalet vibe, while the park-facing side makes a more modern statement.
It’s described as being fit for an executive, where “not a single detail has been missed.”
Downstairs, main living areas are unabashedly minimal but softened, sort of, by imaginary furniture and wall art. The great room boasts a herringbone fire surround, the kitchen looks legitimately “chef’s,” and the slick master bathroom counts Carrara marble floors and a standalone tub.
House-scouts will find a mini lot’s worth of off-street, pad parking here but no garage. And the back patio smacks as an afterthought.
But other options for outdoor chillin’ exist on levels two and three. And the skyline views are indeed legit.
