LaVista Park modern flaunts elevated decks, backyard zip-line for $1M and change

Continuing neighborhood’s contemporary trend, clean-lined dwelling was built on a generous lot in 2014

Up in LaVista Park, off Cheshire Bridge Road near Interstate 85, an admiring neighbor drops a line about a former ranch that underwent a strikingly modern gut-renovation four years ago, continuing a neighborhood influx of larger, more contemporary styles.

A longtime rental in its previous state, the home’s modernity echoes other newer builds in the area. But its relatively normal size—hardly a doghouse at 3,260 square feet, though—sets it apart, as opposed “to the many 5,000-square-foot-plus homes replacing the modest ranches,” the neighbor writes to Curbed Atlanta.

Let’s have a closer look.

By ITP standards, the 1.2-acre lot is enormous. Bisected by a stream with a handy bridge, the land features a tucked-away treehouse and zip-line sure to please kiddos—but with enough grass to make mowing-averse buyers shudder.

Facing the street is one of the most welcoming modern front porches to blip the listings radar in ages. Beside that is what appears to be a carport-size, single-car garage, a potential sticking point at this price echelon.

Inside, smart features abound (see: the space-saving, drop-down television in the family room). A single app controls that perk and the lights, blinds, garage door, and more.

Expanded upward, the home counts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a couple of flex spaces with potential to become yet more bedrooms. Few of those rooms lack walls of windows that frame the tree-filled grounds. And the long, elevated backyard deck and patio off the master are well-suited for soaking in a temperate Southern weekend in January.

The Wild Creek Trail house joins about a half-dozen properties priced at north of $1 million in this leafy neck of Atlanta’s woods, including a couple of modern listings priced significantly higher.

It listed at $1,075,000 a few days before Christmas and has remained there since.
