In recent weeks, Atlanta’s residential real estate market has produced notable examples of midcentury-era homes that have been updated, if not transformed, with modern buyers’ tastes in mind.  

That is not the case here.

Situated on a knoll in Victoria Estates—a coveted, well-kept subdivision where moderns commingle with Colonial-style houses and everything in between, just north of Emory University—this Domo Realty listing is a crisply preserved time capsule.

It’s so clean you wouldn’t be surprised if the light-colored carpeting dates to 1964 like the rest of the house.

The referenced media source is missing and needs to be re-embedded.

The one-owner property listed September 9 for $825,000. It was under contract within five days, according to Georgia FMLS.

Designed by noted Atlanta modernist architect Henry Norris, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom ranch is clad in blond, wood-pressed St. Joe brick, with the carport set aside on a swooping drive. The low-slung exterior is marketed as being both elegant and timeless, but it’s inside where the real “treasure” lies.

Around these 3,180 square feet, each “doorknob and closet has been thoughtfully spaced and placed to create an intimate, comfortable experience for the homeowner,” per the listing.

For fans of the era, perks will include mahogany built-ins in the formal living room, vaulted ceilings throughout, and perhaps even the 1960s kitchen and wallpapered bathrooms.

The screened-in porch overlooking the backyard, wood-burning fireplace in the dining room, and large versatile basement don’t hurt the prospects here either.   

The neighborhood is walking distance to Emory and Toco Hills shopping, and we hear the opportunity to live in Victoria Estates' midcentury ranches doesn’t come around often. Swing up to the gallery for a closer look, or check out a nifty promo video here.
