Serenbe’s priciest house is a modern-rustic showstopper, but will anyone fork over $2M?

Secluded five-bedroom at New Urbanist community is actually walkable to shops, eats

The agrarian, utopian New Urbanism experiment that is Serenbe has seen a handful of home sales north of $1 million—and up to a record $2.2 million—in the past couple of years.

But most of those properties have embraced more traditional designs.

Pushing the architectural envelope a bit more, with a style that blends rustic elements with modern lines, this five-bedroom property has found no such luck since listing a few months ago.

A long gravel drive wraps the residence.

With a stance like a contemporary barn, topped with a metal roof and clad in rough-sawn siding, it’s Serenbe’s priciest home listing at the moment.

Technically located in Fulton County’s Chattahoochee Hills, about a half hour southwest of the Atlanta airport, the home occupies a secluded half-acre with views to Serenbe Sables, but it still counts walkability to the community’s shops, art galleries, restaurants, and various outdoor recreational options.

Other attributes include a versatile, private rear patio with pool and hot tub, a home gym, and righteous basement bar/theater room combo with a 100-inch projection screen.

Counting 4,500 (heated) square feet, it listed via Clickit Realty on March 5 at $1,950,000 and hasn’t budged since.

Also worth mentioning: the $154 monthly HOA fee. Which, at this price point, is probably the least of any buyer’s concerns.
