So duplexes aren’t exclusively a Reynoldstown, Old Fourth Ward, and Edgewood thing.

A few feet from the entrance to the tucked-away commercial district that is Amsterdam Walk, this super-sized duplex has recently finished construction and come to market as one of the least expensive (but certainly not cheap) offerings with four bedrooms or more in Virginia-Highland.

It’s asking $1.75 million, as listed a week ago with Compass.

At 569 Amsterdam Ave. (Unit A), that buys a porch facing the street, four bedrooms, four and ½ bathrooms, and a truly immense rooftop party zone with a total of 3,400 square feet.

The modern-style residence, situated between Monroe Drive and Piedmont Park’s incoming BeltLine section, is being marketed as “luxurious,” with finishes described as “exquisite.”

The .23-acre lot in question was previously vacant (following a bungalow’s demolition several years ago), according to Compass listing agent Hal Freeman.  

Perks include an elevator servicing all four levels, an outdoor covered breakfast nook, a waterfall island in the kitchen, and a terrace suite at the base level with its own kitchenette, bathroom, and exterior entrance. The cherry on this cake, though, could be the fourth-floor “sky lounge” with another kitchenette, attached rec room, and lovely Midtown views.  

With Portman’s pending transformation of Amsterdam Walk in the works—a 10-acre redevelopment proposal, which some neighbors are fighting, that could see a 17-story apartment building, 13-story offices, and several other new buildings—those city views might not be set in stone. (Although Portman’s latest renderings suggest some skyline vistas could be spared. Maybe.)

Records indicate the lot itself sold for $513,000 in the summer of 2022. The second unit has yet to list.
