Atlanta’s sizzling hot zone of semi-detached, modern dwellings might be in for its most minimal offering yet.

Touting “cutting-edge” design from a builder “featured on the Modern Atlanta Tours!”, this double-dose of townhomes is slotted on Rankin Street, about two blocks up the hill from Historic Fourth Ward Park.

Per the listing, it’s aiming to finish by late this year.

The first piece to market—Unit A—sits higher and closer to the street, offering a semi-enclosed roof deck and geometric variety of Pella windows across three levels. It’ll have four bedrooms and three and 12 bathrooms.

Other aspects that aren’t small: 2,853 square feet and the $799,900 price tag. Also, the “very walkable” 78 WalkScore constitutes living large around here.

Beyond the consistently sleek, restrained design, perks include Hansgrohe fixtures, quartz countertops, flex spaces, the two-car garage, and what’s described as “maximum privacy,” in that both homes “share only part of one wall,” per the listing.

Records show the property in question, former home of Universal Prayer House, sold for $390,000 last year.

It’s the work of Think Design, the firm behind this towering Virginia-Highland modern recently promoted as Atlanta’s finest.

The concept joins a groundswell of semi-detached modern dwellings recently announced in the O4W, with other options ranging from the low-$600,000s west of Boulevard, to nearly $900,000 closer to the Beltline and Ponce City Market.
