Despite its 4,200 square feet, Virginia-Highland project aims for cottage vibe

It might not be fully finished, but this cottage-style residence on a pricey piece of intown land illustrates how far a million and a half bucks goes right now in prime locations.

Joining roughly a dozen properties in the general area priced north of $1.5 million, the four-bedroom Virginia-Highland project aims for a cozier, somewhat rustic Euro vibe despite its impressive dimensions encompassing 4,217 square feet.

It brings a stucco-clad exterior with timbers and wood-shingled roof to Park Drive, separated from a Piedmont Park entrance by a few blocks (and busy Monroe Drive). The listing calls it a rare example of new construction with such walkability in the neighborhood.

Perks that exist in the listing photos (lovely wide-plank floors) and don’t (Thermador appliances; a finished basement with bedroom and bath) abound.

One aspect that won't be finished by the builder is a loft area with the detached garage, which the listing suggests would make a fine studio or man cave.

Via Keller Williams Realty Atlanta North, the property came to market this week at $1,595,000.

Records indicate the site’s previous home sold for $550,000 in 2015. And then, as a cleared lot, the property fetched $816,000 two years later.
