Tuxedo Park offering has “midcentury-inspired details” and other surprises

Don’t be fooled by the olde-worlde roof shingles: This Buckhead dwelling has the interior soul of a high-end contemporary, with a dash of midcentury post-and-beam tossed in.

Built back in 1966 on about 2 acres in the tony Tuxedo Park Forest, the six-bedroom sprawler emanates European countryside vibes from afar.

A closer look around these 5,500 square feet reveals surprises such as flooring of herringbone inlays, dashing light fixtures, an architectural wall of wood, and a capable chef’s kitchen with a Wolf range and Sub-Zero appliances.

The price, as posted this week: $1,649,900.

Beyond what are described as “midcentury-inspired details” in the ceilings and such, the house counts sliding glass walls that fully open to bring the forested outdoors in. But what’s described as the “pool deck” leads to some turf and what looks like little more than a fountain.

It’s a bit of a head-scratcher that the property appears to have traded for just $49,900 less than the current asking price in June. A fairly substantial paint job—at least—has happened since then.

So ... huh?
