When the classy-contemporary pocket of Edgewood townhomes called The Whitefoord finished construction last year, this end-unit was among the largest options available.

Now it’s back on the market, all gussied up and with pricing ambitions befitting its big-time status in the semi-detached community.

The Whitefoord stands across the street from Spoke, MARTA’s first foray into mixed-use development on Atlanta’s eastside, where phase one has devoured a former surface parking lot and joined a surge of nearly 300 new housing options on surrounding streets.

With three sides of brick, three stories, and a rare four-car garage, the townhome in question counts an eyelash over 2,900 square feet and “custom everything,” as the listing says.

It’s asking $884,900.

The three-bedroom property went for $691,000 last year, but that was ostensibly before the advent of so many designer finishes. These include lighting by Tom Dixon, Restoration Hardware, and Arteriors, plus customized Shade Store window treatments, home automation and sound, and an upgraded kitchen with GE Monogram and Bosch nameplates.

Whether that justifies expectations of $304 per square foot remains to be seen.

You won’t find a rooftop terrace, but the property counts a back deck with 1,100 collective square feet, a small fenced yard and, inside, a not-small media room at garage level, currently serving as a gym-lounge. Elsewhere, the wide-open living room and cozy lounge with mirrored bar are plusses.

It’s aiming to be just the second Edgewood property to break the $800,000 mark—or even the $700,000 mark, for that matter—following the November closing of a celebrated modern home across the street at $899,000.

Prices at the 17-unit Whitefoord had begun in the high $400,000s at one point in time (for two-bedrooms), and all have since sold.
