Four-story modern townhome at Phipps Plaza’s doorstep targets $1.2M

New, 27 comments

This corner unit at The Metropolitan in Buckhead counts nearly 4,000 square feet and—naturally—an elevator

When initial renderings for this 11-unit townhome development in Buckhead emerged six years ago, commenters on these pages applauded the project as being “sexy” and the sort of infill that Atlanta needs—albeit at a price point beyond the reach of most Atlantans.

But exclusivity is part of the allure in this upscale district, which counts Phipps Plaza as a main draw.

Five years after the project—named The Metropolitan at Phipps, as a nod to its neighbor— debuted, hundreds of townhomes in the same general vein have popped up across Atlanta, as asking prices here on Longleaf Drive climb higher beyond the $1 million mark.

Listed in recent days for $1,225,000 via Harry Norman Realtors, this four-level corner unit is huge by Atlanta townhome standards: nearly 4,000 square feet atop a garage that fits three cars—and then some.

Topped by a roof terrace with skyline views and a wet bar, the Smith Dalia-designed space was built by Cablik Enterprises and includes an elevator to all levels. (Because who wants to carry so many Bottega Veneta bags up actual flights of stairs?)

Speaking of stairs, a huge central skylight over the stairwell sends sunlight cascading across the home—always a lovely touch.

Complaints could be that a 71 WalkScore leaves something to be desired in such a heavily commercialized place, and the home’s three-bedroom status is surprising, given the sheer size. (Although each bedroom is quite large, with its own en suite bathroom.)

This particular unit most recently sold two years ago, for $175,000 less.

For anyone not feeling committed enough to splurge north of $1.2 million on a townhome, another, smaller unit at The Met is up for rent.

For $7,500 monthly.
