Ansley Park might be associated with historically significant residential landmarks and Craftsman-style dwellings so large they’re imposing, but it’s no stranger to daring examples of postmodernism, although not all have survived the wrath of new construction.

Still standing strong after nearly a quarter century is this customized Robin Hood Road property where the northern rim of Ansley Park meets Sherwood Forest, occupying a half-acre corner lot just off Peachtree Street.

Listed at $1.95 million this week with Keller Williams Realty Chattahoochee North, it’s a stucco-sided, European-influenced property of massive proportions.

A huge white living room with a big fireplace and three couches.
A cavernous social area with a double-sided fireplace and connections to several other rooms.

It counts 7,790 square feet overall. A master bedroom suite that spans 1,000 square feet on its own. A formal dining room that lives up to its “banquet-sized” billing. With a library to complement the den, a full courtyard, and separate apartment above the garage.

“There is not another home like this one in Atlanta!” enthuses the listing, which notes the price ($250 per square foot) is below appraised value.

Other pertinent stats: four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and a debut date of 1995.

There’s a two-car garage and enough off-street pad parking for a used-car lot. That could come in handy with a so-so 58 WalkScore around here.

The property is one of a half-dozen Ansley Park homes without contracts asking $1.9 million or more at the moment.
