High over Peachtree Street, it’s contemporary elegance indeed

With top-floor views that won’t quit across two stories, this penthouse at the fittingly named Viewpoint condos in Midtown is being offered for the first time in five years, flaunting a few notable enhancements.

Occupying the 36th floor, the home’s marquee feature is probably the 550-square-foot, north-facing terrace upstairs, where a party of probably 50 (not right now) could enjoy a sweeping vista from Atlantic Station to Buckhead and Emory without craning their necks.

The kitchen, redone in 2018, exemplifies what’s described as modern elegance throughout these 2,141 square feet. Floor-to-ceiling windows abound.

Banquette seating (with views) off the kitchen is a nice touch. The bathroom marble was imported from Turkey and the floors on both levels are finished with walnut. The main bedrooms on both levels (two of three) are considered master suites. Beyond that, there’s a half-bath downstairs. It all looks conducive to a hip CEO’s existence.

Other perks beyond the home include an electric-car charging station that comes with the two assigned spaces, a storage unit, and the building’s 92 WalkScore, which denotes a “Walker’s Paradise.”

It listed this week with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.34 million. When listed in 2015, it was aiming for about $300,000 less.

The only sale on record ($559,000) came a year after the building was completed in 2008.

Monthly HOA fees of $1,043 also apply, which grants access to 24/7 concierge services and a sky-high amenities level—with gardens, grilling areas, a large pool, and full gym—that still stands out among Midtown towers of this generation.

It’s one of less than a dozen built Midtown condos being offered at the moment for $1.2 million or higher.
