Back in 2015, this custom, brick-clad classic was among the final flank of houses to be built around Glenwood Park’s namesake green space.

It’s on the market for the first time now, asking $1 million even and aiming to become just the third residence in the neighborhood to notch a sale that high.

The personal home of a longtime Atlanta homebuilder, the five-bedroom spans just shy of 3,500 square feet. It counts a versatile side courtyard with surprising privacy, given the close proximity of neighbors in this award-winning, New Urban development that began rising from a polluted 28 acres in the early 2000s.

Inside, rustic touches like beamed ceilings, a raw wooden vanity, and what looks like a pair of reclaimed doors or shutters join more contemporary aspects, such as the purple Cobalt blue Viking range, Calacatta marble counters, and audio that spans the house. Find a guest suite above the two-car garage in back.

Beyond the turquoise doors in front (and at the courtyard entrance), a growing slate of restaurants is within walking distance. Another perk of the location: future Beltline access to points south and north across intown Atlanta.

As planning and fundraising continues for the Beltline’s Southside Trail, a few blocks north of Glenwood Park construction of the Eastside Trail has stretched to Memorial Drive.

That entrance won’t open, however, until the Beltline gains permits from the Georgia Department of Transportation to construct a pedestrian plaza where the trail meets the road, as well as improvements to crosswalks, traffic signals, and stormwater systems, officials recently told Curbed Atlanta.

Two other Glenwood Park houses, both significantly larger, crossed the $1-million sales threshold late in 2018—the first residential properties to do so, per property records. The highest sale was a parkside six-bedroom’s $1,015,000.
