A project that’s long been intended to add a fresh component to Candler Park’s commercial core is showing what live-work on a small scale can be.

The three-story, two-unit structure has claimed a formerly wooded hill where McLendon and Brooks avenues meet, overlooking Fellini’s Pizza, La Fonda Latina, and Candler Park Market, among other retailers and eateries.

The home-office project was designed to act as a transition from Candler Park’s commercial activity to single-family streets, with ground-floor spaces occupied by quieter professional tenants, such as therapists, accountants, consultants, or maybe a music teacher, co-developer Walter Brown told Curbed Atlanta last year.

In recent weeks, the Urban Eco Group project has wrapped construction, and the larger unit fronting McLendon sold for $995,000, according to Peggy Hibbert, an Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty founding partner.

The remaining home was listed in mid-September at $899,000 and discounted in recent days to $875,000, records show.

According to Hibbert’s listing, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence spans 2,899 square feet and has accommodations for adding an elevator. It also offers two balconies, including one on the top level that’s long and large enough for one howlin’ Halloween party.

It’s called “uber cool” with contemporary designs and finishes that still honor “the Candler Park aesthetic.” Polished cement on the ground floor helps differentiate it from levels above meant for living in, aiding the listing’s claim: “You haven’t seen anything like this before and you’ll be sorry if you miss it.”

At this price, Atlanta buyers might quibble with the tight, one-car garage, but if any property’s well-suited for walking to work, dinner, shopping, and nearby parks, it could be this.
