Northwest of Atlanta, pair of contemporary oddities seek adventurous homebuyers

New, 27 comments

Despite unique features, stunning views, and (relatively) affordable pricing, neither home has landed a solid offer

Located in Dalton near the Georgia/Tennessee state line, just south of Chattanooga, these two modern/postmodern homes easily rival some of the older moderns found in Atlanta.

Sharp angles and stark lines epitomize the first, while arched rooflines and curved walls suffuse the second, with both resulting in interesting architecture inside and out.

In another contrast, the first home sits high above Dalton, with panoramic views from almost every window, with the second house quietly tucked away behind long-established trees and shrubs.

However, both homes can’t seem to garner an offer, with both holding court on the market for well over six months.

Let’s take a closer look.

Claiming “unparalleled views from virtually every room in this spectacular home,” this 1978 modern home also comes with multiple decks so future homebuyers can entertain inside and out with views of Dalton for a backdrop.

The listing states the home was remodeled in 2006, which accounts for more modern features than those normally found in a 1978 property.

The various decks are covered, making them ideal for relaxing as well as entertaining, while the pool deck welcomes family and friends to soak up the sun.

There’s even two carports to accommodate up to seven cars, as well as an expansive driveway for guests, which is a bonus given the one-bedroom guest house on the property.

“Unique in every respect,” the “aviation-inspired architecture” in this 1990 contemporary home is readily apparent in the curved rooflines that give the interiors a hangar-like appearance.

The catwalk over the main living space adds to this feeling, as if a supervisor could come along at any moment to check on the work below.

The combination of 12 skylights with expansive picture windows flood the main living space with natural light as well as welcoming views of the natural beauty around the house.

The back deck and terrace surrounding the swimming pool and hot tub provide more opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors, whether with family or friends.

Even so, the home can’t seem to move, despite two price cuts that have reduced the ask by $80,000.
