For this installment of Curbed Comparisons, we’re taking a look at two neighboring, North Atlanta homes that have remained on the market for nearly 150 days—in supposedly steaming-hot Brookhaven.
Both are close to the Capital City Club, have been updated, and offer plenty of space for families and entertaining.
With lots of quality finishes, attention to detail, and plenty of quaint curb appeal, it’s unclear why these properties cannot land buyers in a desirable community like Brookhaven, where the price tags between $1 and $2 million are hardly outliers.
It’s true the asking prices might lean toward the high end for Brookhaven, but they don’t smack as being out of line.
Let’s dig in for a closer look.

Sitting on a half-acre lot, this 1945 home features an enormous gourmet kitchen that could double as a small restaurant. Going beyond the basics, though, the property also comes with a game room, home gym, and a variety of outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining.
The home last sold in 2012 for $1.3 million, and it’s had a rough time on the market since it first re-listed in May 2017 for $1.65 million.
It received a pending offer later that month before returning to the market in June last year. It scored a second pending offer within a week, but again returned to the market, albeit with a reduced price of $1,595,000.
The listing was removed in August, before reappearing in February at the same price. Since then, it has receive two more price cuts, bringing it down to the current ask of $1,495,000.

Built in 1949 and renovated in 2001, this “architectural masterpiece” features the usual open floorplan with a large kitchen that leads into a spacious family room. There’s also a recreation room, a bonus room over the garage, and more than enough places to entertain outdoors.
But this place also has a long history on the market.
Last sold in 2011 for $1,272,536, the property went back on the market in May 2016 for $1,895,000.
It then received five price cuts before being taken off the market in November. The house returned in February with the current ask of $1,350,000.
