City views from this $230K Buckhead condo are downright stupendous

One-bedroom near Lenox Square offers a penthouse vantage point on Atlanta without the price (or space)

Atlanta skyline views for the low $200,000s don’t get much more expansive than this.

Two blocks from Lenox Square at the Grandview at Buckhead Heights, a prominent tower along Lakeside Drive that’ll turn 30 next year, this “spectacular” condo is touting what’s called an uninterrupted city-view panorama from Midtown to Buckhead.

Perched on the 22nd floor, the home’s proportions are more NYC than ATL: one bedroom and one bathroom in 750 square feet. But the openness inside could help with livability, as would updates that include a new backsplash and bathroom tweaks.

The price is $230,000, as listed this week with Keller Williams Realty.

The monthly HOA commitment of $364 might seem steep for the unit’s size and price, but it does include access to amenities the listing describes as “unmatched”—a large pool, two gyms, sauna, theater, and concierge available 24/7.

The 35-story tower debuted in 1990 with 225 residences, back when Buckhead was synonymous with shopping and all-night partying.

Talk of high-rise development in recent years along Lenox Road, just south of the condo building, means that southward views might not always be so unobscured.

But buying centralized Atlanta real estate for the views, of course, is a risky proposition almost anywhere.
