One of the largest homes at the adaptive-reuse marvel that is Cabbagetown’s Stacks Lofts wants to knock buyers off their feet with its unique proportions and clean, snazzy aesthetics.

Punctuated by 17-foot ceilings and old masonry made chic, this 2,128-square-foot condo includes a soaring bonus room, accessed via arched doorways, where factory workers once kept their lockers.

Listed earlier this month at $490,000 (plus $551 monthly HOA fees), it’s both wow-worthy historic and sexy, per the listing.

It recalls a similarly structured unit—with a markedly different approach to decor—offered for sale at the Stacks Lofts last year. And it last traded a little more than a year ago at $410,000.

Like many larger Stacks homes, the loft counts two bedrooms and two bathrooms, each stacked near the entrance. Unlike most units here, however, it employs a sea of carpeting to soften the concrete beneath, which is exposed elsewhere. Despite its depth, a dearth of natural light doesn’t appear to be an issue.

The listing wisely emphasizes what earns the property a strong 84 WalkScore: “[It’s] walking distance to the Beltline, Krog Street, Carol Street & more. Tons of new shopping & restaurants coming soon to Memorial!”

Bonus points for listing photography that captures the spirit of the historic property, inside and out.

A pioneering adaptive-reuse project for Atlanta, the 500-unit landmark building was originally a 19th century cotton mill.

Transformed into lofts in the 1990s, it withstood a ravaging fire in 1999 and a tornado that whipped through Atlanta a decade ago next month.
