Longtime Atlantans—anyone who’s lived here since roughly 2014, that is—might recall the days when million-dollar, intown home prices were found only in places like Ansley Park, Druid Hills, parts of Virginia-Highland, and Inman Park.
This listing in Southeast Atlanta off Moreland Avenue is the latest proof those times have passed. At least for now. And maybe forever.
Million-dollar asking prices have become somewhat routine in popular eastside locations from Ormewood Park (see: $1.3 million), Old Fourth Ward (discounted to $1.29 million), to Kirkwood (almost a whopping $1.5 million).
But this new-build modern at 886 Custer Avenue is striving to be the first single-family sale north of the $1-million threshold in the southeast section of Atlanta between Grant Park, Ormewood Park, East Atlanta Village, and the I-285 Perimeter.
Located where Custer/McDonough/Guice meets Boulevard Heights, tucked back on nearly a half-acre lot, it’s described in the listing as “truly one of a kind” and built with the “highest standards of taste and design, with premium architectural details and top-of-the-line finishes.”
It’s certainly not lacking for space. Five bedrooms and four and ½ bathrooms are located around three levels in nearly 5,000 square feet, all topped by a truly gigantic if raw roof space.
The most recent asking price, as posted this week with Humphries & King Realty, is $1.05 million.
That’s a discount of 12 percent from the initial $1.2-million list price in June, records show.
While the property might not grace the pages of Dwell anytime soon, perks include a soaring great room with a modern fireplace accent wall, a statement foyer, and an apartment-sized master suite.
Palm-haters of Atlanta might disagree with the front landscaping, but given the home’s aesthetic and bombast, those trees are somehow a fitting touch.
