Recently completed, this so-called modern farmhouse in East Lake presents a striking façade that’s unlike its neighbors.

It’s also evidence that “modern farmhouse” descriptions are being applied to a wide range of Atlanta homes, so long as they include somewhat unique rooflines and maybe exterior wood flourishes.

Inside the 2,091-square-foot home, located a block north of Memorial Drive, four bedrooms and three bathrooms accompany the main level’s open floorplan, which combines a living room, family room, dining area, and kitchen.

Hardwood floors battle subway tile—both of which are spotlighted by plenty of natural light—for covering the most space throughout the home.

The fireplace in the living room is referred to as “cozy,” but it’s the large window seat in the master bedroom that looks intimate and inviting.

Interestingly enough, the listing says the kitchen will feature black cabinets with “new trending gold hardware and accents,” but the photos appear to show brushed nickel hardware. Perhaps that’s too non-farmhouse.

The main level comes across as light and airy.

Upstairs, the master bedroom includes a “spa” bathroom with a shower that does come across as quite large.

The listing also states the property includes a large beautiful deck, although no photos confirm exactly what’s in the backyard.

The current asking price of $625,000 is a bit higher than other homes in the area, but it could be the right entry for potential buyers wanting a new approach to a more traditional-leaning intown neighborhood.
