For million-dollar buyers on the prowl for a standalone Midtown house, the pickings are relatively slim at the moment. Just three options meet that criteria.
The only one among them with less than 2,700 square feet is no rudimentary house, but in terms of size, it’s not the palatial spread that intowners may have expected from properties far beyond the $1 million mark in years past.
Having replaced a traditional bungalow on a corner lot where Argonne Avenue meets 6th Street, this boldly modern four-bedroom now counts location on its side—it’s about four blocks due south of Piedmont Park—along with a multitude of outdoor spaces.
These include a patio with ceiling fans off the living room. Which is topped by a terrace off the master bedroom. Which is topped by a rooftop deck, with enough space for a party in the trees.
It listed a few days ago, following a lengthy construction process, with Solid Source Real Estate for $1,373,000.
Described as a “statement” that’s sleek and “full of presence” yet family-friendly, the house counts three bathrooms (one for each patio) among 2,682 square feet.
Plusses include oversized windows that lend such a tall property that treehouse feel, the wide-plank flooring, and a main level that seems very loft-like under such tall, open ceilings.
The lot’s previous occupant sold three years ago for $400,000 even, records indicate.
The new home’s footprint left almost no yard to speak of, which can be a positive. Especially when there’s a massive yard the city mows and manicures just up the street.
