Midcentury-modern enthusiasts allergic to carpeting might want to avert their eyes—or use their imaginations.
Here on secluded Wickersham Drive, due west of Chastain Park, this 1957 MCM appears painstakingly well cared for, with updates (and carpet) that are high on convenience and comfort but could make purists cringe. (Psst: Hardwoods lurk beneath the carpet on the main level).
Set upon 1.3 acres, and claiming nearly 3,400 square feet, most everything about this five-bedroom relic is big. That includes the style of the tongue-and-groove ceilings and beams, and the attractiveness of Japanese-style gardens encircling the home.
The downstairs gym with a drop ceiling and wall of windows is a surprise. As is the second kitchen down there. And the deck off the main kitchen and dining room is positively massive beneath a green canopy.
A smaller residence in the same style (built the same year) fetched $825,000 in October.
This one, listed a month ago, is asking $1,049,000.
