Big-budget intown homebuyers looking to make a splash in almost every conceivable way—including literally—could find a Midtown Shangri La in this modernized 1920s bungalow with a true oasis around back.
Marketed as both “completely renovated” and “exceptional,” the arty three-bedroom a couple of blocks south of Piedmont Park listed at $1,785,000 last month with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
Achieving that price would make this 3,592-square-footer the third-highest Midtown home sale of all time.
The single-family record-setter came in May on nearby 9th Street, where a thoroughly updated 1916 traditional bagged $1.88 million (also notching the highest price per square foot, at more than $497).
That sale eclipsed the neighborhood’s previous $1.789 million high-water mark, set in November 2017 by a much newer home reminiscent of France, also on 9th Street.
What warrants such lofty ambitions on Penn Avenue? (The per-square-foot breakdown, it’s worth noting, would also be about $497.)
Landscaping is rather fantastic, front to back, and summers spent beside that watering hole (with spa) would not be shabby. Inside, rooms are large and refined, and the pro-grade kitchen brings an eight-burner Viking range and wine cellar.
Four fireplaces are found around the home.
The driveway parking and bathroom count for such a roomy house (two and a half) could be minuses, but the luxe aspects are real. This include the “highest tech” sound implanted both indoors and out, and landscape lighting.
