UPDATE: December 18, 12:55 p.m. A clarification from a neighbor regarding the home’s official location: The house on Brookwood Drive is in Peachtree Heights East Neighborhood, not Garden Hills. The neighborhood association for Peachtree Heights (PHENA) is responsible for the total care and maintenance of the Duck Pond and the adjoining parks, which are privately owned by the neighborhood but gladly shared with everyone.
Poised over a manicured front yard on a leafy Buckhead street, this 1909 dwelling tucked a few blocks off Peachtree Road just might qualify as a contemporary classic, as oxymoronic as that may sound.
Listed as falling within the Garden Hills/Duck Pond district, the four-bedroom residence stands an easy walk from that celebrated body of water (and nearby schools), among neighborhoods where million-dollar old houses aren’t uncommon.
Described as “gorgeous” and full of natural light, this option listed in recent days with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $1,095,000.
That would buy 3,062 square feet, three and a half bathrooms, and period touches like arched doorways and handsome floors of dark wood.
Renovations by K2 Construction, which specializes in this look, are described as being fresh, lending Carrara marble to the kitchen (countertops and backsplash) and bathrooms.
Added bonuses include a banquet seating cove adjoining that kitchen, an attractive screened porch off a fireside living room, and that swing dangling from a mature tree around back.
One downside is that the property lacks a garage or any covered parking, but a long driveway does extend behind the gate, into a deep, functional backyard.
Records indicate the home has traded several times in the past decade—its eleventh to date—most recently for $1 million even in June.
