A new duplex on Virginia-Highland’s leafy Greenwood Avenue is aiming to stand out among the street’s brick multifamily complexes and century-old bungalows.

It’s just down the hill from Va-Hi’s Highland Avenue commercial strip, the section that includes Dark Horse Tavern and Blind Willie’s. The combination of design and location is described as “modern intown living at its finest.”

Unit A listed this week for $799,900 with Compass.

That buys three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms among 2,350 square feet, with finishes provided by Buckhead-based Pineapple Interiors, per the listing. Another number of note: the strong 88 WalkScore.

Off the carport is a mudroom, and above that, three more levels, topped with a roof terrace that looks private enough for sunbathing unseen. Anyone requiring an elevator with that many stairs, however, is out of luck.

It appears to be the only duplex offering on the market in Va-Hi at the moment.

But slightly larger, contemporary-style units at The Milo townhome project, which has topped out around the corner, are priced from about $100,000 more, at last check.
