In the Brookwood Hills neighborhood off Peachtree Road, just north of Midtown, this newly listed property offers gorgeous English gardens, stone that looks truly ancient, and more built-in book storage than Fulton County’s library system.
It’s storybook Atlanta to the max, perched on a corner-lot hill with no shortage of privacy—boosted by gardens the owner, a pro landscape designer, developed over the course of many years, per the listing.
Built in 1928, the four-bedroom residence (like its 1⁄2 acre lot) looks meticulously maintained across more than 3,100 square feet.
Moving inside, the kitchen may lean a little Southern Living for hip younger buyers, who would probably also be motivated to update elements in a couple of bathrooms, such as the thick-framed shower surround. (Provided that budgets allow for alterations after spending the $1,595,000 requested, that is).
The interiors excel in the natural light department, aided by large bay windows and a surprise skylight. The airy family room opens to an entertainment-ready deck and overlooks another perk for green thumbs (the vegetable garden) and a two-car garage with attached shed.
Added bonus: The ability to say you live on Palisades Road, which would make anybody a little more cool.
About a dozen houses are for sale in the neighborhood right now, and all cost more than $1 million.
