Heavy on windows, 1957 property is buried in lush setting off Northside Drive

Unlike another midcentury modern home recently listed in the vicinity of Chastain Park, this groovy specimen from 1957 is touted as being “special”—and not a potential teardown.

In fact, the listing goes a step further in calling it, “The real thing!” Which isn’t unreasonable.

Plenty of original features appear to have survived the last six decades here on Wickersham Drive, including slate and hardwood flooring, a generous brick fireplace, and (white-painted) tongue-and-groove ceilings.

Nonetheless, the home is described as being “mostly renovated” by way of a $100,000 kitchen redo and (arguably) “beautiful” bathrooms that are said to be “perfectly designed in keeping with the era of this special home.” As is, some of the decorating qualifies as baroque, the Eames chairs notwithstanding.

The abundance of windows is a definite plus, showcasing a lush and private setting off Northside Drive. And the substantial, tree-canopied back deck would go a long way in helping occupants enjoy the surroundings.

At 2,275 square feet, the residence listed a month ago at $869,000 and has remained there since.

It tallies three bedrooms, three and 12 bathrooms, and a carport for two vehicles.

Speaking of, with a car-dependent WalkScore of measly 4, a buyer would be wise to keep the Cadillac fueled up around here. But such is the price of tucked-away privacy.
