Stucco-clad four-bedroom off Moreland Avenue stands out

With the exception of landscaping promised in renderings last year (maybe plantings are TBD until cooler months?), this modern-style Reynoldstown project appears to have stayed true to its initial vision.

The initial price is another matter.

Lording over a new commercial project that includes Hodgepodge Coffee’s latest outpost, just off Moreland Avenue, the four-bedroom contemporary has listed with Virtual Properties Realty.Net for $849,900.

Reynoldstown, now Beltline-connected and swelling with investment on all sides, has been smoking hot, as they say, for years. But this property initially listed, prior to construction last year, for $200,000 less—a substantial difference.

That being said, a half-dozen R-town townhomes and houses have traded for more than $800,000 in the past year or so.

Beyond the soaring, minimalistic facade, with its white stucco and wood accents for warmth, this property brings 2,467 square feet and three bathrooms. It’s as open as you’d expect—with design surprises involving wood that you wouldn’t.

The 86 WalkScore (surely a nod to nearby Edgewood Retail District, along with the Beltline) could help soothe buyers pained by the lack of a garage, although there is a two-car parking pad in the back.

Should it fetch its asking price, it’d be the second highest single-family home sale in Reynoldstown, following a much larger modern-style residence (3,700 square feet) that eventually went for $860,000 in March.

The lot sold for $135,000 three years ago, records indicate.

The kitchen’s described as “masterful,” the mudroom “practical,” and the overall offering “a house like none other.”
