Buyers who value privacy and don’t mind skewing a little different in terms of housing styles could be intrigued here in Peachtree Heights East.
Designed to maximize a deep, thin lot on Brookwood Drive, a few blocks east of Peachtree Street near Lindbergh, this three-bedroom dwelling is the work of an architect who crafted it for himself in 1996, per the listing.
Walkable perks include things not always found with intown locations: a soothing body of water (Buckhead’s famed Duck Pond) and nearby swimming (Garden Hills Park and Pool), along with shops and eats such as the Treehouse Pub and Restaurant.
Clad in stucco with a metal roof, the property is being marketed as a “stunning modern masterpiece” that’s now home to a “world-renowned, award-winning designer.”
It listed this week with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage for $1,050,000.
Uniqueness begins in the front, with a facade that features two slots for vehicles and favors practicality over a more traditionally inviting vibe, as with porch-heavy Atlanta bungalows.
The unorthodoxy carries inside, across more than 3,300 square feet, where you’ll find a sunken living room, several voluminous spaces for lounging, working, and eating, and nary a typical room dimension.
Ceilings soar, and the wood-clad kitchen qualifies as sleek and multidimensional. Huge windows allow for treetop views and glimpses at the level backyard, which looks like something of a blank slate at the moment. A spiral staircase leading down to the terrace level somehow works in this context.
Records indicate the property sold just a year ago for $822,750, following six months on the market and a few discounts.
