The bar for pricey, single-family home sales in one of Atlanta’s most coveted neighborhoods has officially been raised.

A six-bedroom, white-brick Colonial poised over 9th Street, about a block south of Piedmont Park, has topped the tony neighborhood’s previous sales record by about $100,000, according to listing agent Adam Parker, a Realtor with Atlanta Intown Real Estate Services.

The $1.88 million deal closed today. It also notches the highest price per square foot (more than $497) for houses in Midtown history, Parker said.

Once inside, design surprises begin immediately.

Built in 1916 and recently modernized, the house spans just shy of 3,800 square feet—with nary a boring square foot to be found. Enviable aspects include a gunite pool (with fountains) and dynamite outdoor kitchen, which divide the main home from the garage and carriage house, accessed via an alley.

The sale eclipses the neighborhood’s previous $1.78 million high water mark. That was set in November 2017 by a much newer home reminiscent of France, also on 9th Street, Parker said.

The sellers, he noted, did their own interior design work.
