Unique facets abound at modern-traditional blends west of Buckhead

Homebuyers in the mood for the antithesis of Victorian gingerbread ornamentation might fancy a pair of what’s called “prairie-mod traditional” dwellings in northwest Atlanta’s Riverside neighborhood.

Replacing a 1932 residence on Main Street, this particular four-bedroom, three-bathroom option doesn’t hassle with pesky porch railings or landscaping.

The spartan theme continues indoors, where the 2,200 square feet serve no shortage of stained concrete flooring and a fireplace mantle fashioned from what looks like a legitimately ancient railroad tie.

Based on scant listing photos, there appears to be a very generous deck off one bedroom and plenty of natural light throughout. The master bathroom also delivers on marble and dual vanities.

That marble appears again in the countertops of a kitchen described as a “chef’s dream,” where the range hood is hopefully pending installation.

Contrary to what photos might suggest, there’s a two-car garage and fenced yard around back, too.

Also listed at $525,000 within the past week, the white-washed sibling next door takes the unique, below-grade approach to porch privacy.
