As blank interior palettes go, this one is relatively grand—and unabashedly spartan.

Built in 1947, this home in the Haynes Manor subdivision fuses a traditional, classic Buckhead exterior—with Georgian elements and ivy wrapping so much white brick—and an interior that shuns coziness for pared-down chic at every turn.

It’s what the listing describes as a “perfect balance.”

Tucked back from Peachtree Battle Avenue near Bobby Jones Golf Course, between Northside Drive and Peachtree Road, the four-bedroom residence recently listed with Ansley Atlanta Real Estate for $2,895,000.

Like other old Buckhead properties that have blipped the listings radar, the distinctive redo inside is the work of Kay Douglass Interiors. And it appears the approach was full gut-job here.

The home spans 5,500 square feet across one and a half stories, with whitewashed floors meeting white walls, white stone, and light fixtures that are predominantly white throughout.

Views to the ancient-looking courtyard, like the oversized windows and iron doors, allow for touches of warmth, although some buyers might hanker for Sherwin Williams’s embrace immediately upon entry.

Highlights include a kitchen that seems custom-made for holiday parties and an immense, main-level master suite with a double dose of both closets and baths.

On the flipside, the property lacks covered parking but does have The property has a two-car garage and off-street parking to spare, by way of a large pad out front, accessed via a long drive.

Records indicate it last traded in April for a hair over $2 million.
