Contemporary home enthusiasts around Atlanta (or those relocating from other places) with deep pockets and a hankering for something totally different could be charmed by this recent listing in Old Fourth Ward.

Here in the 500 block of East Avenue, unique facets include a three-story atrium for a living room, a catwalk, a windowless façade with brash red panels, and a full loft space for pedaling a Peloton and tromping a treadmill.  

Located a block east of the hospital complex on Boulevard, just north of Highland Avenue, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom complex was built in 2015 and hasn’t traded since. Access to the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail is a few blocks to the east.

It listed four days ago with Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta at $1,299,900, making it the perpetually hot neighborhood’s second-priciest listing without a contract at the moment.

With more than 3,800 square feet across three levels and the aforementioned atrium, the proportions seem huge by intown standards—enough to make the elevator qualify as a blessing. No shortage of exposed ductwork, metal railings, and polished concrete floors add industrial touches to the minimalist vibe.

It’s marketed as a “gorgeous… modern oasis” and a whole other level of O4W existence, with perks that include—count ’em—five patios (one of them a roof deck with skyline views), a full “wetroom” in the owners suite, and a sophisticated, highly efficient HVAC system for keeping so much space comfortable.

A surprise perk is the apartment above the two-car garage—described as an in-law suite, with access via a bridge from the main house—that appears to have never been used, or lightly so. 

Records indicate the property hasn’t sold since the lot alone went for $125,000 in 2014.
