Maybe. Just maybe

When it comes to Atlanta views that span from downtown to Buckhead, this vaguely medieval, semi-detached offering in the Old Fourth Ward slays.

Ye homebuyers of ATL hath probably seen no such vistas from a property that isn’t perched in a condo tower.

Rising roughly, seriously seven stories up from sidewalk level, the rooftop terrace offers a fireplace, shaded section, outdoor kitchen with top-shelf grill, and enough seating for Camelot’s court, all with views that frame most of Atlanta’s dazzling, scattered spires.

But whether a home with a mere three bedrooms (somehow) on Boulevard can fetch nearly $1 million remains to be seen.

Perched lordly on a hill between Ponce de Leon and North avenues, the 2,871-square-footer is attached at the back to a similarly towering residence, next door to a Boulevard daycare.

Built of bricks in 2008, it listed this week at $975,000.

It’s marketed as having an “incredible” New York brownstone style, with top-flight amenities such as Thermador appliances, a four-stop elevator, surround sound, plus a “spa-like” master suite with a custom closet that’s “to die for.”

Like the closet chandelier, the outdoor bed on one balcony seems perfectly reasonable here. The abundant millwork is stylistically appropriate, though it won't earn many points with fans of more spartan townhomes.

The views, per the listing, are featured on every level.

Beyond the actual home, the property’s 90 WalkScore translates to a “Walker’s Paradise©,” which accounts for everything from Ponce City Market and Central Park to Wendy’s and that spiffied-up Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin Robbins combo down the block.
