For $2.7M, discounted Chastain Park new-build is goliath showcase of restraint

With 7,500 square feet near park, pricey dwelling described as “the perfect 10” yet struggles to sell

With its vaguely industrial windows, lack of decorative flourishes, and street presence that could be called massively restrained, this huge new-build up the street from Chastain Park isn’t your typical intown manse.

Yet its uniqueness hasn’t worked in its favor thus far, as the six-bedroom goliath has lingered on the market for nearly 10 months, in a land of homes also priced in the $2 million range or much, much higher.

Collectively, these 7,500 square feet are described as “the perfect 10,” tucked in a cul-de-sac subdivision maybe a one-minute chauffeured ride from the park’s edge.

Inside, the loaded butler’s pantry alone could make other luxe kitchens tremble with feelings of insignificance. Beside a living space accented with rustic beams, the kitchen includes a beefy Wolf range, steam oven, and Sub-Zero fridge and freezer, as it should at this price point.

Upstairs, find a half-barrel vaulted ceiling in the master’s lair, which also boasts a wet bar. The glass-enclosed master shower—offering at least six heads—qualifies as sprawling.

Downstairs, in the daylight basement, find a blank-slate movie theater room and that rare wine cellar that looks more Vegas cool than Tuscany ostentatious.

Another perk is the three-car garage. But a drawback, for sure, is the “huge yard ready for [a] pool” that doesn’t bother to offer a pool, despite the price.

Speaking of, records indicate the property was finished in 2017 and initially listed last March at $2.75 million.

The new price, as of this week, is $2,695,000.
