Strategically sited among rolling Buckhead woodlands since 1967, this brick-built midcentury dwelling has been under the loving purview of the same owners since the early 2000s, per the listing.

The time has come to list, meaning this throwback four-bedroom could find new purpose as a “hipster family starter home” in the coveted Morris Brandon Elementary School district.

Find it next to Interstate 75’s Moores Mill Road exit, with no shortage of outdoor space for parking, partying, and mowing.

Offering two levels of midcentury-modern panache, it’s a tongue-and-groove plank shy of 3,000 square feet, carrying a sticker price of $725,000 as of this week.

Design highlights include too-cool tray ceilings, wood trim reminiscent of true Arts & Crafts homes, a large (gas) fireplace in the family room, and brickwork that appears fresh despite its vintage.

As the listing concedes, bathroom and kitchen updates could be in order, and some buyers might consider two and a half bathrooms a sticking point. So much bright-white carpeting could give a clean freak (or child/pet owner) hives.

A new roof provides the footing for a massive outdoor space above the garage, which boasts easy access but doesn’t seem very hospitable, as is.

That’s another example of a customizable space that could make this listing a true Buckhead knockout should the right budget come along.
