In Chastain Park, surreal midcentury modern exudes tranquility for $2M

With a wall of glass overlooking a creek, this MCM comes across as more wooded retreat than actual house

Built in 1950, this Buckhead midcentury modern certainly lives up to its name with clean lines, a flat roof, and glass for miles.

And the home features much more room than listing photos allude to, with 4,783 square feet that includes three bedrooms and four bathrooms in the main house alone.

An additional bedroom and bath are found in the guest house over a four-car, detached garage. So a cozy little MCM this is not.

In the main house, the marquee attraction is the open floorplan with living spaces and a kitchen that overlook a wooded vista complete with babbling creek.

Along the creek bed, find plenty of rocks, which compliment stonework found inside the home.

Per the listing, the property was last remodeled in 2000, which accounts for the very non-1950s kitchen and master bathroom.

The barn door separating the master bedroom is not a great choice, and the fireplace in the master actually appears to be a wood-burning stove, but those elements would be easy to correct.

With a nearly 4-acre lot, this home definitely is located in a “tranquil and private setting” as the listing proclaims.

The current asking price of $2 million is on the high end for the neighborhood, but for the right midcentury enthusiast, it could be a worthy expenditure for a truly unique sanctuary.
