The exuberant listing description for this unique, copper-clad townhouse on Ponce de Leon Avenue begins with a true assertion: “Admit It! You've passed by these modern townhome[s] dozens of times and wondered what's it like inside?”
With properties so strikingly different in such a prominent location, it’s tough not to wonder. Especially when they rarely become available.
Now, this listing for the most eastern unit of the ultra-modern bunch provides answers.
Inside, these are soaring, stylish spaces with plenty of intriguing architectural elements (see: the custom kitchen, living-room walls) and window arrangements. And they still look pretty cutting-edge, despite their 2007 vintage. It’s a case where vertical photos are necessity.
Called “Plexus on Ponce,” this project by Plexus r+d was marketed as a “piece of art” when it finished a decade ago. Another unit came up for rent here last year at $3,000 monthly.
Now, the for-sale property is asking $609,900 (with zero HOA fees). That buys three bedrooms, two full bathrooms (two partial), and less square footage than one might think
(1,760). That count doesn’t include the too-cool rooftop terrace, of course.
UPDATE: The listing has since been clarified to reflect 2,000 square feet here, based on original architectural drawings, according to the listing agent.
Other perks: the floating stairs, sleek pocket doors, and at least one other outdoor living space off the kitchen.
The spacious garage might be awkwardly accessed, but it’s clearly adequate for race-car storage. It also comes with its own half-bathroom and workshop area, for buyers feeling crafty.
With Little Five Points and all the splendors of Highland Avenue nearby, the location is described as being the “epitome of walkability.”
