According to the listing, this “Craftsman” in Home Park is the modern home for “luxury lifestyle lovers.”
Certainly, it’s the latest bold addition to streets on Midtown’s western flank, where large contemporary houses have been sprouting for several years.
Inside the 2,927-square-foot dwelling, the “unique” floorplan serves four bedrooms and four bathrooms on three stories. Details include stained concrete and hardwood floors, lots of expansive windows, and a master bedroom on the top floor, which the listing claims is a California-style loft (whatever that is).
Outside, find two balconies plus a very raw rooftop deck, where occupants could enjoy skyline views that include Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
But what really seems to sell this home, at least according to the listing, is “location, location, location!” The listing states the home is in the heart of Midtown, “just a walk away” from Atlantic Station. That’s true. It goes on to say it’s “very close” to Peachtree Street and Piedmont Park. Relative to, say, Macon, that’s also true.
The reality, though, is the home is located just off 10th Street, across from Georgia Tech’s campus. As a result, it has a mediocre WalkScore of 50, with a transit score of 53. On the other hand, it’s considered very bikeable, with a BikeScore of 88.
Given the home’s location in an older section of the neighborhood that hasn’t seen a ton of rebuilds or renovations, achieving a solid offer for the full asking price of $795,000 could be a challenge.
Then again, it’s a lot of space, and Atlantans have proven time and again they don’t mind going bold.
