Could it be that Atlanta buyers in the $2 million stratosphere can’t live without a bona fide garage?
Maybe that’s reasonable, and it could help explain the selling struggles this traditional-style, shingle-clad Ansley Park home is experiencing, despite its roominess and tony location.
It initially listed back in September for $2.35 million, and a series of five price reductions began in October, per Zillow data.
The current ask is a full half-million bucks cheaper—$1,850,000—as posted this week by Ansley Atlanta Real Estate.
So what gives?
With six bedrooms and five full bathrooms (plus two half-baths), this residence occupies a large corner lot where several streets converge, with the tennis courts and playground of McClatchey Park directly across the road, and Piedmont Park’s northern meadow within two blocks. Colony Square’s ongoing overhaul, like the rest of Midtown, is a few winding streets in the other direction. Intown locations can be worse.
Built in 2004, it’s younger than it might seem at first blush, and the 5,000 square feet inside are loaded with top-flight finishes, such as a pro-grade kitchen, master bath with heated floors, and an elevated, screened porch that’s extremely conducive to chill football nights in autumn.
The clean-lined interiors, however, could be a jolt for buyers expecting frillier traditional designs the exterior seems to suggest.
Downstairs is a large space that currently functions as a gym but could be a second family hangout. Out front is a manicured lawn, but there’s almost no backyard to speak of, which isn’t necessarily a minus for city folks.
The backyard is “fully fenced,” as the listing points out, and the carport does fit two vehicles. But is it enough for what’s among Ansley Park’s top five priciest houses at the moment?
