Two-bedroom flat for sale in century-old Peachtree Street structure, the work of storied architects Reid, Shutze

For Atlanta condo hounds who covet weatherworn brick and backstory over steel and sleek glass, this two-bedroom listing on Peachtree Street could hit the mark.

Posted since 1915 in the 900 block of Atlanta’s most famous thoroughfare, the Phalen Building was fittingly designed by two of Atlanta’s most legendary architects, Philip Shutze and Neel Reid (with partner Hal Hertz).

The classical motifs (and east-facing sun porches) of the three-story structure remain intact—only now with views to Taco Mac.

Chicly decorated, the flat boasts surprising square footage (1,355) with a floorplan that’s hardly open but yet seems appropriate and unrestrictive. There’s no shortage of cool chairs gazing longingly out the windows of sunny bonus rooms.

A sticking point could be that the two bedrooms are joined by a single bathroom, but with its clawfoot tub and marble countertops, it’s a pleasant lone lavatory.

The kitchen has been updated, per the listing, and includes a breakfast bar without seating. On the plus side: “Triple pane windows make [the] unit super quiet!” And that could be key on Peachtree.

The 92 WalkScore qualifies the location as a “Walker’s Paradise,” and it offers about as Manhattan of a lifestyle as anywhere in Atlanta. Which is a good thing, because unless the dining-room table isn’t pictured, eating out could be a necessity.

The ask is $379,900, with $496 monthly HOA fees.
