Near Interstate 75 at the Chattahoochee River, this 1967 dwelling coalesces with its “park-like” surroundings

Home with walls of windows lit up at night.
How inside meets out.
Common Ground Real Estate

Built in 1967, this midcentury modern in Whitewater Creek, just off Mount Paran Road at Interstate 75, incorporates a variety of features that bring the outdoors in.

Most obviously, floor-to-ceiling windows flank the home on multiple sides, providing scenic views of the trees and shrubs that fill the lush grounds.

It’s one example of the MCM genre in Atlanta that’s not being floated as a possible teardown—and for good reason.

Inside, find nearly 4,700 square feet and numerous natural touches, such as the den with an exposed stone wall and wood ceiling, the dining room with a stacked stone wall, and the stacked stone fireplace in the living room. So it’s like the Stone Ages in here—but in an attractive, timeless sense.

The sunroom also invites the outside in with more walls of windows plus a skylight.

Additional architectural details “typically reserved for the West Coast,” as the listing puts it, include the butterfly roof and high ceilings.

The listing claims the house is perfect for entertaining, which could explain all the extra kitchen amenities like double ovens, two dishwashers, and two walk-in pantries.

Conveniently located near both Midtown and SunTrust Park, the home could be perfect for potential buyers who covet the perks of city life and suburbia.

And given that the asking price of $1,200,000 is on target for both its style and location, logic says this MCM might not linger on the market very long.
