After nearly a year, $365K McDonough-Guice modern finally scores offer

New, 34 comments

Built in 2016, this new modern lingered on the market longer than probably expected, with a substantial price cut along the way.

Located in McDonough-Guice, south of Ormewood Park, this modern was certainly “new” in 2016 when it joined its neighbors in this unsung cradle of modern-style dwellings.

The three-bedroom, three-bath abode does have some attractive features, like the clean curb appeal, the panoramic windows at the front and back entrances, and the large back deck.

On the other hand, though, the cool, contemporary interior smacks as a bit too cold, especially given the sparse amount of windows found in the bedrooms.

From the outside, the home comes across as more of a storage unit, shipping container, or utilitarian building than an actual residence. But some buyers covet uniqueness above all else.

The listing also claims the home is near the Beltline, but what it doesn’t divulge is the home’s location near the future Southside Trail, which isn’t expected to become reality for at least five years. But, yeah, logic says the locale will eventually pay dividends.

Now, 10 months after listing, the house that “won’t last long” finally has a pending offer.

Perhaps the contract is a result of the home’s series of price cuts that reduced the cost from its original asking price of $475,000 to the current ask of $365,000.

After all, a $110,000 drop is quite an incentive, but even more likely is that the home is now competitively priced for its neighborhood.
