Boasting views galore, condo atop Museum Tower marketed as art enthusiast’s Shangri-La

A downtown Atlanta penthouse decorated like an antique shop.

Minimalists of Atlanta, proceed with caution. Otherwise, you might break something.

Described as “magnificent” and “stately” with no shortage of “grand architectural details,” this penthouse atop downtown’s Museum Tower (a fitting name, in this case) is asking condo shoppers to see beyond an intense collection of regal stuff.

“The owner has done some nice upgrades, but they are hard to see through all his treasures,” Pamela Berry, of Keller Williams Atlanta Realty Partners, tells Curbed Atlanta.

Those upgrades, to the tune of $225,000, include elaborate millwork, floors of Carrara marble, and voice-controlled lighting, security, and motorized drapes.

Like the tall ceilings and “gallery-sized” walls, those elements are conducive to what an antique shop owned by Elton John might look like, or what’s described in the listing as “an art collector’s paradise.”

As is, the unit is configured with a single bedroom and a bathroom and a half. For aforementioned minimalists, the comparatively spartan and sleek master bathroom is probably a sigh of relief.

Listed at $549,000, the condo counts 1,362 square feet and two assigned parking slots. The monthly HOA fee isn’t specified.

Perks of the 2004 building include around-the-clock concierge services, a rooftop pool, and stone’s-throw proximity to Centennial Olympic Park, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and the rest of downtown.

Back inside, the elaborate fireplaces and chandeliers—in such a non-classical, non-mansion context—recall an Old Fourth Ward bungalow that quickly sold a few months ago.

Pity the movers tasked with shepherding all these treasures to somewhere else.
