Pint-sized Buckhead studios do exist

Whether it’s efficient or cramped might be the subject of debate, but this pint-sized dwelling at Buckhead’s Parklane On Peachtree tower is inarguably not boring.

With just 505 square feet, it’s essentially a generous hotel room (plus fridge and stove) that could operate as a pied-à-terre or first-time buyer’s crashpad.

It’s one of very few Atlanta condos available right now with less than 600 square feet.

The 1967 building—an early example of high-rise residential in Buckhead, standing at roughly the midway point between Piedmont Hospital and Buckhead Village—is a haven for landing homeownership on Peachtree in the ballpark of $150,000.

Examples of recently sold, larger units in the same building.

Renovated to the bones on the 14th floor, the condo in question listed this week for $149,900, flaunting city views described in the listing as “unbelievable.”

From the emerald-green kitchen cabinetry and hexagonal backsplash to the faux brick accent wall and vintage vanity, this is one redo that wasn’t averse to taking risks.

Another consideration: HOA dues are listed as $316 monthly.

That includes gated parking and 24-hour concierge services, plus a gym, pool, and club room that won’t exactly dazzle renters accustomed to amenities at newer, glassier towers.

But maybe all that really matters here is the price.
