Modern farmhouses have been popping up within stumbling distance of the East Atlanta Village for a couple of years now, but this newly built offering on East Side Avenue brings a few aesthetic twists.
Surprises begin at the curb, where the home’s facade recalls both Old South traditionalism (see: immense, blue-ceilinged porch) and new Atlanta modernism (triple stack of windows at left).
Inside, rustic touches include cedar ceiling beams, the kitchen’s traditional-style farm sink, a double-dose of barn doors downstairs (and at least one more upstairs), plus the somewhat random wood slats on the stairwell wall. Industrial lighting fixtures abound.
Highlights include the sheer amount of outdoor space (the front porch is dwarfed by the back deck, which itself is attached to a screened porch). Natural light has little difficulty swimming around each room. And the master shower is positively (excessively?) massive.
The mudroom, while nice, appears to be open to the garage, which means it could be toasty this time of year, unless the garage is cooled. Speaking of, the aforementioned screened-in porch comes with a heater. Clever.
The facts: four bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2,588 square feet.
It stands a few blocks southeast of the neighborhood’s commercial village, listing last week at $579,900.
