Neighboring properties on the same Grant Park street have re-listed this week, offering variations on the farmhouse modern and more straightforward modern home-design themes seen across Atlanta in recent years.

They’re hardly twins, but they share a driveway lane areaand the exact same interior dimensions. Like other new-builds in the immediate area, which happens to be a block from the Atlanta Beltline’s planned Southside Trail, they rose on the former sites of smaller single-family homes.

Both properties initially listed in early November at $739,000 and were reposted this week at the same number.

Only one other Grant Park house—a discounted, 1920s renovation just north of the park—is asking more than $700,000 at the moment. Roughly a dozen have sold in the $700,000s on surrounding blocks in the past two years.

The first Mercer Street option has the more aggressively modern exterior of sharper angles and bolder colors, plus an abundance of patios (most of them facing neighbors’ patios).

Despite a few daring tile choices (including hexagonal ones) and the black-painted porch, the interior is accurately described as soft modern.

For both properties, a bonus is the living space with a kitchenette over two-car garages, with a separate entrance for guests, short-term renters, or home office uses.

Next door is what’s described as a “perfect balance of function and design” in a vaguely farmhousian package.

A few interior design choices are echoed from the modern neighbor (see: shiplap, kitchen tilting, pretty hardwoods) though the execution is more traditional overall.

Both houses offer four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in 2,710 square feet.
