Around metro Atlanta, midcentury modern homes have been back in vogue—and in hot demand, typically—since around the time Don Draper tipped back his first Old Fashioned. Recent examples have brought to the forefront meticulously well-preserved 1960s time capsules and sexy relics with to-die-for updates.
This recent 1967 listing in Tucker lands somewhere in between—with a lower price than more centrally located MCM dwellings mentioned above.
It’s located northeast of Decatur, up the street from Tucker High School and the city’s growing Main Street corridor, tucked in a leafy setting amidst rolling hills and homes of a similar vintage. The setting is a sloped, private 1-acre lot.
Interiors by Blue Dawn Designs brought what’s described as minimalist Scandinavian flair—think: pure white countertops and frameless modern cabinetry—to mingle with original selling points like clerestory windows and post-and-beam bones, per the listing.
The result, overall, is called “absolutely stunning.”
The 2,695-square-foot floorplan spans three levels, with the master suite nestled on the private upper floor, boasting two walk-in closets, a floating double vanity, and a shower large enough for one swingin’ party. There’s not much 1960s panache left, but it’s certainly more functional for today's discerning buyer.
Other perks include a long, elevated back deck under the canopy, a downstairs media room, and a bunker-like private bedroom suite carved into the lowest section of the basement.
Pertinent numbers: four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and one carport for $625,000—for a breakdown of $231 per square foot.
An open house, it should be noted, is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
