Newly built three-bedroom is determined to shirk cookie-cutter condescension

The huge, multicolored bathroom flamingo is a pretty good sign the latest addition to Summerhill’s contemporary housing stock wants to squash all claims this style has gone cookie-cutter in Atlanta.

Listed last week for $625,000 with Keller Williams Intown Realty, this tri-level residence has claimed a former tree-filled lot just south of the neighborhood’s signature park, about a five-block walk to the commercial resurgence happening on Georgia Avenue.

It’s one of four houses asking north of $600,000 in Summerhill at the moment. Just two Summerhill properties have sold for above that mark in recent years, including a much larger contemporary fronting Phoenix II Park.

Despite standing three stories, it’s not out of context, in terms of size, with other newer construction in surrounding blocks.

Beyond the double shot of rooftop patios (one of them accessed via a roll-up door), unique exterior aspects include an in-ground fire pit in the front yard, and a single off-street parking space accessed over the sidewalk. At least some of the siding is Shou Sugi Ban, a Japanese-style charred wood that ups resiliency, per the listing.

Moving inside, the audacity ramps up.

A high-gloss kitchen, wall-facing eating counter, puzzles of modern wall coverings, ambient lighting built into ceilings, a dining table with telescopes—it’s all an affront to banality, though it runs the risk of being a bit too much for less daring buyers.

Per the listing, the newly built project brings three bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,190 square feet, with an “entertainer’s dream” of an outdoor kitchen, with skyline views, up top.
