As an indication of where prices in this sovereign ITP city have gone, this new-build modern is one of a half-dozen Brookhaven listings asking north of $1.8 million right now—but the only home that isn’t decidedly traditional in style.

And it’s probably the only one to add Christmas lights as a sales tactic.

According to Mike Toltzis of SET Real Estate Group, a team of local professionals was recently hired to install Christmas lights along the home’s substantial exterior, aiming for a festive touch.

Clocking in at 5,500 square feet, which allows for six bedrooms and six full bathrooms, the illuminated property listed in recent days for $1,899,000.

With a geometric array of commercial-grade windows, a three-car garage, and a generous lot, the house stands just north of the Town Brookhaven community off Peachtree Road, in the Oglethorpe Estates subdivision.

According to Toltzis, it’s the only new-construction modern priced between $1.6 and $2.5 million across Brookhaven and Buckhead right now.

While this example of the genre might not be every million-dollar buyer’s cup of tea, it’s described as a “modern masterpiece” with a flat commercial roof that lends a Los Angeles-type feel overall.

Moving inside, the 12-foot ceilings will please fans of airy layouts, while a huge custom fireplace surround made of walnut lends a sleek, unique touch.

Perks continue on the main level with Thermador appliances and a covered porch large enough for doing just about anything. An unexpected highlight is the basement, which is not only finished but outfitted with a bar, bedroom suite, and access to a covered veranda.

To the extent that it matters, the WalkScore from this location, marketed as being the heart of Brookhaven, is a car-dependent 23. That’s one drawback of homes in districts with so much land, with privacy being the upside.

Back in 2017, the home’s split-level predecessor on the half-acre lot sold for $460,000.
