Nothing’s boilerplate about this four-bedroom modern offering a few blocks from Piedmont Park

Modern-home enthusiasts of Atlanta who dare to be different could do worse than a property filled with customized woodwork by local master craftsman Welborn Henson.

That’s the case with this atypical Morningside dwelling, listed this week for $1.53 million, which still comes across as sophisticated and fresh a decade after it was finished.

Poised over Kings Court, a couple of blocks east of Amsterdam Walk, the four bedroom, four and half bathroom “gem” was drawn up by Dencity Design, and it’s being marketed now as “contemporary at its best,” per the listing.

Beyond the blondish woodwork, the (at least partially) solar-powered residence brings originality around each corner, with no shortage of airy angular ceiling heights (reaching 20 feet in the master bedroom) and huge windows that lend a treehouse vibe to some spaces.

Elsewhere, perks include a landscaped garden with an irrigation system, a lower-level nanny suite with private entry (and sufficient space for ping-pong), and several stylish, outdoor nooks and decks. The kitchen’s name brands—Sub-Zero, Gaggenau, Miele—hardly ding the appeal.

The shared driveway situation might not be ideal, and for such a centralized location, the 56 WalkScore could leave something to be desired.

Records show no sales activity here since the lot itself traded for $375,000 in 2007.

Totaling 3,673 square feet, the home’s pricing breakdown is $416 per square foot. And while the neighborhood is no stranger to listings in the range of a million and a half bucks, very few of them are so daringly not traditional.
