As spotted this year in places such as Westview and Hills Park, Atlanta’s craze for contemporary-style housing has spread west of the central city.

That Westside trend is continuing now in Hunter Hills, where the first offering in a community of 13 new houses has listed in recent days with a distinctly modern bent.

According to listing info, the Energy Star-certified home is expected to finish in coming weeks, with closings available this month.

It’s on a cul-de-sac due west of downtown and Vine City, between Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, where another development appears to have sputtered in the past. The West Lake MARTA Station and Mozley Park’s eponymous green space are a few blocks to the southwest of the homesites.

The elevated location is said to carry “breathtaking skyline views,” per the Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta listing.

The asking price is $325,000, and the property offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms across 2,300 square feet.

That’s a breakdown of $141 per square foot—a price point that sailed away years ago for most single-family homes in popular neighborhoods on the flipside of town.

The listing name-drops nearby attractions from Mercedes-Benz Stadium to the Beltline’s Westside Trail and the planned mixed-use Quarry Yards, where pre-construction demolition was expected to begin last month with an initial apartment offering to follow.

The home in question comes with a two-car garage (with attached mudroom), a kitchen described as “amazing” with quartz countertops and a large walk-in pantry, plus walls of windows one might expect with the style.

We’ve asked for more home images and information on the construction and pricing of other Norris Place properties and will update this story with any details that come.
