Back in the pre-Beltline days of late 2015, this contemporary corner-lot project raised eyebrows for daring to ask more than $700,000 in Reynoldstown—a plateau no single-family home had reached before.
In hindsight, for better or worse, that price point looks like a relative bargain.
This sleek, sizable modern (3,230 square feet, across four levels) eventually sold in February 2016 for exactly what it had been asking: $719,000.
Two years later, it’s being offered again—like a red barometer for where intown real estate has been headed—for $850,000.
For modern enthusiasts looking for a gritty-chic location with upside and immediate Beltline access, the four bedroom, three and a half bathroom dwelling could be tough to top.
Buyers who value privacy and bucolic quietude might not be so taken.
Marketed as a “modern masterpiece,” the home’s gleaming-white main floor has an abundance of commercial-grade windows and doors—and subsequently a constant inpouring of natural light.
Aesthetically, perks begin with the Brazilian walnut ipe decking and composite siding, and then continue with the kitchen’s 14 feet of water-falling Carrara marble and the master bathroom’s vanity composed of “exotic hardwood,” per the listing. Find almost-white, five-inch hardwood flooring throughout, which further brightens rooms.
For social occasions, the finished walk-out basement (with wet bar atop concrete flooring) is topped only by the fourth-floor terrace, rimmed in glass with skyline and rail-yard views.
Other nonstandard highlights: pro landscaping and hardscaping, a speaker system (with AV closet) on the main floor and in the master bathroom, and a multi-cam security system.
The property notches a 69 “somewhat walkable” WalkScore, which could be seen as underwhelming for the area, but that number has risen 10 points in just two years. It likely has its Glorified Sidewalk neighbor to thank.
