This updated traditional from 1936 in Buckhead’s Peachtree Park could appeal to Atlanta homebuyers whose idea of bliss involves copper guttering, slate roofing, arched doorways, and pecky cypress.
Blending a certain storybook quality with contemporary restraint, the expanded five-bedroom, four-bathroom property stands just south of Lenox Square, tucked between Piedmont Road and Ga. Highway 400.
Beyond the original structure, an addition by Atlanta-based architect Norman Askins was styled after the 18th century Connecticut manor home that renowned interior designer Bunny Williams chronicled in her 2005 design book An Affair with a House.
That additional space brought the square footage to 4,034 across three stories.
The listing’s description of “special” would seem to apply to various aspects of the property, from the tastefully updated rooms of the original structure, to the convenient (if not totally necessary) dual kitchens, and the airy sunroom, with its heated floors to counter a winter’s chill outside so many windows.
Even the heated pool—and adjacent pool house—looks stylistically on point.
Listings indicate the home has been offered as a $4,700 monthly rental, but Keller Williams Realty Peachtree Road listed it this week for $1.1 million.
