Between Midtown and Buckhead, four-bedroom cottage is enveloped by English gardens

Lushness that didn’t happen overnight.

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 12 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.
