In the works for more than a year, a decisively modern residence is being marketed as a “stunning architectural masterpiece” among more the traditional homes on Kirkwood’s northern fringes.

The F.M. Studio-designed project has begun foundational work on a long-cleared Trotti Street corner lot. It listed last week with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $1,150,000—the latest example of new housing product in Kirkwood seeking north of $1 million.  

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom dwelling is described as a “one-of-a-kind contemporary work of art you can call home,” chockfull of comforts and “state-of-the-art features” that aren’t specified.

The total heated square footage lands just north of 3,300.

Perks include a second-floor terrace over the two-car garage and a covered patio off the kitchen that lends new meaning to “cocktail cove.”

The listing initially appeared in March last year, as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, for $900,000, but was pulled off the market in May.

According to Zillow, the previous 1920s bungalow on site went for $255,000 in 2018.

The 57 Walk Score—good for merely “Somewhat Walkable” status—could smack as low, given the proximity of downtown Kirkwood and both bus and rail transit routes.  

And as the listing notes, for the first time in decades, two-block proximity to the Pratt Pullman District is actually a good thing.
