Elevated outdoor spaces and fresh takes on tiling highlight Hills Park new-build

A new modern farmhouse for sale in Upper Westside Atlanta.
Where a traditional roofline meets almost industrial-style windows and a contemporary porch.

Atlanta homebuyers willing to venture off the beaten path a little—both geographically and stylistically—could be intrigued by this new listing that melds yesteryear design with that of tomorrow.

It’s another take on the modern-farmhouse approach popularized in places like Reynoldstown, Ormewood Park, and Howell Station in recent years—except this is marketed as being in “HOT” Upper Westside™, on a leafy lane amidst no shortage of industrial activity.

Technically, you’ll find it in the Hills Park neighborhood, with Crest Lawn Memorial Park directly to the north and Buckhead beyond that. Other nearby landmarks include Nuevo Laredo Cantina, Topgolf, and breweries in tucked-away warehouses.

Priced at cheaper-than-the-eastside $565,000, the home itself makes a statement but doesn’t seem to jolt, blending traditional shapes with windows and railings that wouldn’t be out of place in a Castleberry loft.

It’s the latest offering from Atlanta’s Xmetrical, the firm behind modern townhomes and houses that’ve popped up across the city in recent years.

Within the 2,255 square feet are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and abundant, colorful tiling choices.

The option of three different, elevated outdoor hangout areas, stemming off the main level and master bedroom, hardly dings the allure.

The listing points to the additional perks of a two-car garage and the ability to walk or bike from here to the Westside Trail and under-construction park at Bellwood Quarry, down beyond the railroad yard.

The blank-slate corner lot itself sold for $98,000 in the summer of 2017, after several months on the market and multiple price reductions, records show.

It wouldn’t be the neighborhood’s first listing priced north of a half-million bucks, and other (albeit larger) properties have recently achieved that mark.
