Since its conversion to condos more than 20 years ago, Midtown’s 805 Peachtree building has been a draw for loft enthusiasts seeking architectural authenticity and sturdy midcentury bones.
According to its listing, this particular condo (unit 307) had been updated “far beyond all other units in the building” prior to hitting the market this past weekend.
The revisions appear to have paid off.
Sam Morgan, Engel & Völkers Atlanta’s director of sales, tells Urbanize Atlanta the 1,195-square-foot flat landed a contract after just two days—in a district with no shortage of condos for sale.
The asking price was $349,900, and the condo is classified as a one-bedroom, one-bathroom property, though one bedroom wall, so to speak, is a retractable curtain. (The room can nonetheless be “completely blacked out for a peaceful night’s sleep,” the listing notes.)
With period-appropriate furnishings to set the place off, the flat is big enough for housing large plants, helping to soften a space with so much concrete and exposed ducts.
Perks around the “meticulously updated” interior include an elongated kitchen island, large windows for natural light, and a spa-inspired bathroom recently renovated to the studs.
The building is known for having legendarily high HOA dues—ringing in at $505 per month here—but they do grant access to a fairly spectacular heated saltwater pool with cabanas and 24-hour concierge. This particular condo also comes with two deeded parking spaces and a storage unit.
Built in 1951, the 118-unit building was originally federal government offices. George Rohrig (of Cartel Properties) and his frequent investment partners the Loudermilk family (of Aaron Rents fame) bought it in the late ’90s and converted it into a boutique condo building with street retail.
Today, as the listing puts it, the location allows one to “enjoy Midtown as your playground with renowned dining, shopping, and activities in the blocks surrounding your home.”
