1955 dwelling melds signature MCM flair with a fresh kitchen and bathrooms

Tucked off Roswell Road, just north of the Buckhead Triangle, this 1955 residence has elements that could make zealots of midcentury modern—and 2018 modern—swoon.

Embracing its sloped site on Alberta Drive, the four-bedroom dwelling is loaded with huge expanses of windows (some angular, in signature MCM style) that capitalize on the nearly 1 acre of manicured grounds surrounding it.

Inside, the highlight could be a two-story living room with the most righteous floating (and quite possibly original) staircase spotted in Atlanta in ages.

Immense stacked-granite walls lend warmth to the austere interior and exterior. Modernized kitchens and bathrooms might aggravate MCM purists, but they jibe.

Other perks include a private, pebbled backyard with a large patio and wee waterfall; the blank-slate terrace level might make for a great theater or gym.

Finishing that section could also help boost square footage, which, at 2,100, isn’t hugely impressive at the moment. Ditto for the home’s bathroom count: two.

In any case, the listing warns that opportunities such as this are rare in Buckhead. This particular opportunity listed a week ago at $795,000.
