The 2014 property brings more than 4,000 square feet to a sloped lot near the Beltline’s Eastside Trail

Over the years, this sort of porch-heavy, neo-traditional style has been replicated countless times across Atlanta, but not always on a scale like this, with a locale so choice.

A couple of blocks uphill from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail in Virginia-Highland, this house was built on a sloped, terraced lot in 2014 with more than 4,000 square feet. It stands across the street from a $700,000 teardown that lends an idea where real estate in the area has more recently gone.

Listed today with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.6 million, even, the property specializes in wide-open social spaces, which include a handsome screened porch and paved fire-pit zone around back with a stone ping-pong table.

In the front, views to Midtown from both expansive porches would only be enhanced in winter.

Pertinent numbers: six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a solid 77 WalkScore for a single-family neighborhood.

Despite the overall size, however, the $396/square foot breakdown is not unsubstantial; larger options in the neighborhood can be found for less money.

Then again, special features here are abundant, beyond perks like Thermador appliances. On that screened porch, for instance, all-weather panels can be deployed for year-round use, and a relatively small deck for grilling and al fresco dining has a retractable, electric roof.

It’s sold once before, in early 2015, for $1,275,000, records indicate. And the home’s exterior color could be fitting, given a certain local, musical connection.
