In Atlanta, eccentricity isn’t always the strongest selling point.

But substantial discounts can be.

This 1980s A-frame contemporary, tucked in a northwest Atlanta forest and largely renovated to 2019 standards, has lingered on the market for well over a year, despite discounts totaling almost $260,000.

Spotlighted on these pages last year, the four-bedroom property now flaunts more leafy, summery listing photography in addition to the adjusted price: $939,899, as posted this week by Dorsey Alston Realtors.

The unorthodox entry (with porthole window), next to the garage.

Built in 1980 off Buckhead’s Mount Paran Road, between Interstate 75 and Chastain Park, the house clings to a hillside and enjoys a buffer of thick woods. Numerous balconies (four? five?) jut off the backside, overlooking a creek and so much verdure.

The land totals 1.2 acres, while inside is 3,611 square feet.

Following renovations, it initially listed at $1.2 million in March 2018. A couple of months later, the price-chopping ensued.

It’s being marketed as “truly a work of art,” with ITP privacy to the max. We’ll see if the revised price is finally what art buyers are looking for.
