Townhouse scouts of Atlanta who fear splashes of custom stairway murals, jazzy art, and futuristic wall coverings could find this Old Fourth Ward resale jolting.

But that’s kind of the point.

Angled toward the “buyer really looking to stand out,” per the listing, this tri-level back half of a Rankin Street duplex was the 2017 work of the Think Design firm, standing about two blocks up the hill from Historic Fourth Ward Park. It’s since been customized in various rooms and featured in a magazine.

When the project last blipped the radar, it was being applauded as having “maximum privacy,” in that both 2,853-square-foot units share only part of one wall.

From behind both units.

A year and a half later, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom resale remains sleek—and surprising—throughout. See: painted Peanuts characters.

Highlights include a cozy media room and spacious, partially covered roof deck that could qualify as both sexy and cook-out friendly. Stained and sealed concrete floors are a constant, which could irk some hardwoods adherents at this price point. Elsewhere is a two-car garage and secondary, elevated patio.

Behind it all is a small, manageable, sloping backyard.

The property last moved for $796,000 in early 2018, prior to “more upgrades than can be listed,” per marketers. Real Living Capital City listed it last week at $882,500.
