Straddling the line between opulent classicism and modern cool, this sizable residence by prolific, Atlanta-based Harrison Design brings nary a dull moment to the upper echelon of local listings.
Standing four doors east of Chastain’s eponymous green space—Atlanta’s largest park—the home was built in 2014 with a facade of stone and roof of slate, with copper accents. Coupled with daring interior designs, and a blue-slate pool area installed last year, the total package is described as “transitional and fresh”—with a price to match.
Counting four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms among 5,500 square feet, the home recently listed with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties for $2.9 million.
It last sold in August 2016 for $2.35 million, records show.
For all of Chastain Park’s prestige, homes priced north of $2.5 million aren’t exactly common.
Just four properties in the neighborhood asking north of that mark are currently for sale, and only this updated traditional from 1958 on 1.6 acres has scored a contract. All of them have more than four bedrooms.
But roughly a half-dozen Chastain Park homes have traded at $2.5 million—or much higher—in the past year.
Beyond the fresh aesthetics and built-to-last exterior, highlights at 43 Lake Forrest Lane include living-room accessibility to the pool (plus grill and fire pit), the kitchen’s honed marble and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, and what’s called a “secret garden.”
Just beware of antlers.
