Described as “stylish and timeless,” this midcentury relic on Buckhead’s scenic Arden Road is beckoning buyers who appreciate throwback design—and sturdy stonework.

Built in 1965 around the corner from the Governor’s Mansion, the home hardly qualifies as a pure example of midcentury modern style, with recent updates across its split-level floorplan that include a gourmet kitchen and one royally big chandelier.

With so many rooms (including a den devoted to duck hunting and at least three places for a family to lounge), the total square footage of 3,949 comes as a surprise, given the prevalence of walls.

Other pertinent numbers: four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and carport parking for two. The price is $799,000, as listed about two weeks ago.

Towering windows in the great room, the old stone fireplaces, and the property’s sprawling, abundant patios are definite highlights. Tiling choices in several places probably aren’t.

Outside, the three-fourths-acre lot would allow enough space for the addition of a pool or home expansion, says the listing.

But the listing also offers a note about the land that midcentury modern enthusiasts could find chilling: “Preliminary drawing available that shows possible subdivide of the property into two lots.”
