1960s Mt. Paran modern seeks $1.7M following renovation

New, 21 comments

Built in 1966, this house has been “renovated to perfection,” bringing it in line with neighbors

Surrounded by established trees, shrubs, and landscaping on a cul-de-sac lot, this 1966 Buckhead home received extensive renovations between 2009 when it last sold (for a mere $680,000) and now.

At that time, the home was billed as a “contemporary classic” with cathedral ceilings and a “great open space for entertaining.”

Today, the home is dominated by massive circular windows that span two floors on the main living levels and punctuated by unique (and often ornate) woodwork.

As a result, natural light floods the two-story living room and highlights the floating staircase along one side of the space. In addition, the windows provide panoramic views of the gunite swimming pool and backyard that make downtown Atlanta seem a world away.

The kitchen clearly embraces a contemporary attitude with its all-white Poggenpohl cabinets, quartz countertops, and Miele appliances.

It’d be interesting to know what the full front exterior of the house looks like after the renovation, but no such photos are included with the current listing. It’s tucked away on a leafy corner lot, so Google isn’t much help either. Hmm.

However, the property seems to be struggling with finding the right asking price.

When the home was initially listed in May, the ask was $1,795,000, but it dropped three months later to the current asking price: $1,695,000.

Are further reductions coming? Given the revised listing is barely a week old, it’s hard to say, but it could happen.
