With its abundant shiplap, white-painted brick, and whitewashed woods, this Brookwood Hills residence boasts updates that artfully toe the line between rustic and vintage elegance.
This much refined space (4,116 square feet) in this Midtown-meets-Buckhead part of town comes at a premium, of course.
But the $1.6-million asking price seems in line with at least three other homes in that range, within blocks of here.
Speaking of location, it’s walkable to Peachtree attractions such as Bell Street Burritos, Saltyard, Sufi’s Kitchen, and Tuk Tuk Thai Loft, and from the curb, a variety of rooflines and a touch of shingles (not contagious) lend this 1925 bungalow a cottage-like charm.
Inside, even the laundry room begs for a glossy magazine’s attention.
The layout is perhaps a little less open than one might expect, but the variety of spaces (see: charming sunroom) seems applaudable. The sprawling master suite counts a fireplace, sunporch, a “dressing island,” and vast bathroom. Elsewhere, find three other, lesser bedrooms and a whopping five and 1⁄2 bathrooms. (Detractors of vertical subway tile are hereby forewarned).
On the downside, the concrete-heavy backyard and deck are more utilitarian than swoon-worthy.
But maybe that’s a minor quibble for a property with so much going for it otherwise.
