You know an Atlanta condo is spacious when it offers both formal and informal entries.
And it could be either special or really pretentious when it’s described in the listing as “bespoke.”
Definitely leaning toward the former, this roomy three-bedroom loft is actually two units combined by previous owners at the 805 Peachtree building, a centrally located frontrunner on intown’s adaptive-reuse scene.
The product of a designer overhaul that manages to be both elegant and cool, a la the Hotel Clermont’s aesthetic, this 2,600-square-foot loft was spotlighted last fall by Atlanta magazine’s HOME and again this week by the New York Times’s real estate site.
The building has history, but don’t expect antiquity.
Originally built as federal government offices in 1951, George Rohrig (of Cartel Properties fame) and his frequent investment partners the Loudermilk family (of Aaron Rents fame) bought it in the late ’90s and converted it into a boutique condo building with street retail. The communal pool, to cite one cool aspect, is heated and cooled.
Accordingly, the HOA fees are legendarily high. Listing services indicate monthly commitments with the unit in question are north of $1,200.
Beyond sheer space, which is larger than many not-small houses, plusses include location (hello, 89 WalkScore), beautiful wide planks of European white oak throughout, and a top-flight kitchen featuring mitered quartz countertops.
There’s ample room for a large dining table of glass that pulls double duty as a ping-pong table—and stylishly so. Two storage spaces and three parking slots come with.
Is all that worth $434 per square foot? Time will tell.
Records indicate the condo listed last summer for $1,195,000 and was pulled from the market after two price cuts totaling $70,000 in January.
It returns this week where it left off—$1,129,000—as listed by Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
