A block from the easternmost point of Piedmont Park, as the crow flies, this newer construction Tudor echoes the area’s yesteryear home styles on a lot described as “super deep” and a street called “one of Morningside’s most desirable.”
Around Atlanta, a handsome brick exterior like this can hint at exhaustively fancy interior decor, but such is not the case on Middlesex Avenue.
Across all 5,000 square feet, the approach could be described as clean restraint. Just as the home is marketed (accurately) as “much larger than it looks.”
Five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and so much space commands a serious price in this tony district, and that number is $1.58 million, as posted last week. The breakdown: $317 per square foot.
Beyond generous room proportions and overall style, perks include a highly functional screened porch off the back, two fireplaces, a kitchen where the “chef’s” description appears appropriate, and a detached two-car garage, back near the woods, with an in-law suite up top.
Below the main structure is a roomy basement that looks not only uninhabited but untouched. Technically it’s finished, with yet another family room, guest suite, and media space.
Overall, it should appeal to families whose needs include at least three places for eating dinner and four for lounging around.
But for such a centrally located property, the 54 WalkScore isn’t exactly inspiring, though it speaks, again, to the area’s lot sizes and tucked-away exclusivity.
The property might be almost-new, but it’s not the home’s first ride on the open market. It sold for a little more than $1.4 million in the summer of 2017, records show.
