Chastain Park mini-manse that gobbled midcentury ranch is seeking $2M

This updated traditional replaces a rather routine ranch, bringing it up to par with its neighbors

When the home on this lot near Chastain Park appeared on these pages in 2014, the listing agent advised potential buyers to tear down the 1955 ranch and build anew.

Looking at the gated, 5,076-square-foot house built in 2015 now standing on the property, it’s quite clear the buyers heeded that advice.

Taking the 1,500-square-foot ranch’s place is a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom dwelling with three finished levels—a far cry from the original ranch structure.

While the brick and stone exterior is clearly traditional, there are some modern touches inside. For example, check out those light fixtures in the living and dining rooms as well as the kitchen.

And the spa-like master bathroom with its expansive glass walk-in shower, deep soaking tub, and massive double vanities is a far cry from anything found in a 1955 house.

Other modern features include a chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero and elevator that traverses all three floors.

Behind the house, the “shabby backyard” has been replaced with a covered stone porch and brick fireplace that overlooks the swimming pool and infinity-edge whirlpool.

It’s certainly a big change—one that comes with a $2 million asking price—but the house definitely is now more in line with other homes found on this street.

Looks like the newcomer fits in.
