Noted for its retro cool factor, Plaza Towers on Peachtree Road in Buckhead continues to be a popular, albeit under-appreciated, choice for potential buyers looking to invest in midcentury modern architecture—condo style.
Built in 1969, the twin buildings of Plaza Towers feature a maximum of four units per floor, ensuring each one comes with plenty of space.
In Unit 11B, that equates to two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,594 square feet. In addition, there is a living room, separate dining area, a galley kitchen, and what appears to be a (very) small office tucked off one hallway.
The second bedroom also appears to have been converted to a full-on den, complete with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on two walls.
Speaking of architectural details, the listing also notes such features as “turnstyle” leather and nickel door handles, smoked-oak engineered hardwood floors, a walnut veneer in the custom built-in bar, a zebra wood veneer (not explicitly stated where, but perhaps that built-in desk in the small office), an ultra-suede upholstered wall in the master bedroom, and Venetian plaster walls in both bathrooms.
Outside is a decent-sized balcony with access from both the living room and master bedroom.
It was recently listed by Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $675,000. But the monthly outlay will increase substantially with the unit’s steep HOA fees of $1,301 per month.
Those fees do cover a lengthy list of amenities ranging from bicycle storage and a dog park to guest rooms, a lending library, and storage rooms.
For the right Buckhead buyer, though, that could be the ideal price point for a smartly customized, lock-and-go home on Atlanta’s “Golden Mile.”
