ITP serenity doesn’t exactly come cheap near the banks of the Chattahoochee River

ITP settings don’t get much more North Georgia than this.

Just off Interstate 75 (but a world away in spirit?), on the Atlanta side of the Chattahoochee River, this unique four-bedroom dwelling from 1959 offers trout fishing, hiking, and even summertime tubing options basically in the backyard.

Thoroughly renovated at what’s called one of “Buckhead’s most exclusive addresses,” 4450 Harris Trail includes circular windows, which function like portholes to nature beyond, and gorgeous stone walls abutting a stream around back.

The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is about 100 yards beyond, with river access.

One of four fireplaces—and two distinctive windows—in a vaulted sitting room.

Beyond some stonework, larger windows, and the split-level layout, not much hints at the home’s midcentury roots. But like fireplaces (four total), outdoor spaces are in abundance, providing ample opportunities for soaking in the serenity.

Coupled with proximity to top-flight public and private schools, this bucolic package doesn’t come cheap, listing this week for $1,327,000. That buys what’s listed as 3,500 square feet, with just 2,500 of it heated.

Another, somewhat surprising consideration: living here entails monthly association dues of $380, per the listing.
