Despite its “unbeatable location,” the custom home has yet to land a done deal

Within blocks of Candler Park’s eponymous green space and village of shops and eats, this new four-bedroom, four-bathroom modern showcases nontraditional architecture in what’s largely a traditional setting.

Inside the 3,000-square-foot home, the results of a collaboration between architectural firm xMetrical and First Street Builders, a white color palette and lots of windows give truth to the listing’s claim the property is “light and airy.” The layout also lends itself to a spacious, yet comfortable aesthetic.

The listing also touts the home’s décor finishes, which include the on-trend shiplap, subway tile, and (unfortunate, some would argue) barn door on the master bathroom.

The interior is spot-on modern, and exterior spaces are an inspired complement. With a walk-out patio on the ground floor, a large deck on the second level, and a covered deck off the master suite, there’s no shortage of choices for al fresco entertainment.

However, the property has experienced a less-than-stellar, extended run on the market.

Originally listed in May for $1,349,900, the property received three price cuts and a very brief tenure as a “pending sale” before continuing on the market with RE/MAX Metro Atlanta Cityside for the current asking price of $1.25 million.

According to Zillow, that price is 124.7 percent higher than the median home in Candler Park, which could explain why the property remains for sale. Although the typical neighborhood dwelling isn’t this large, with finishes on this level.

Only time will tell if this contemporary standout garners a solid offer without additional price cuts.
