Property from 1960s comes across as “sophisticated, yet comfortable” indeed

Not surprising for a Buckhead resident, this 1965 Wyngate home has had some work done.

Following a renovation by Atlanta architect Norman Davenport Askins, the dwelling does, indeed, appear “sophisticated, yet comfortable,” as the listing claims.

With five bedrooms and five bathrooms in 4,637 square feet, the house contains quite a mix of architectural details, too.

Think tray ceilings and shiplap, arched doorways, indirect lighting behind crown molding, and built-ins galore. Even the master walk-in closet has its fair share of decorative crown molding.

In fact, the only room that really speaks to the home’s age is the recreation room, which emits a decidedly 1960s vibe.

The outside courtyard, along with the seating area with fire pit just down the stairs, is ideal for both cozy family gatherings and primetime outdoor entertaining.

Perhaps one of the most surprising aspects to the listing is how spacious the .68-acre lot looks with such a large house.

It’s amazing what a professionally landscaped yard coupled with a lot of long-established trees can do to create not only an air of privacy but also space.

The listing also claims the property is within “easy walkability” to Atlanta Memorial Park, the Tanyard Creek Beltline Connector, many farmers markets, and more, but some potential buyers may not agree with that assessment.

What they may agree to, though, is the current asking price of $2,150,000, which appears to be a good match for the neighborhood.
