Centrally located yet off the beaten path, the Manchester residential village began springing up about five years ago in a former industrial area that was marketed as the junction of Morningside, Midtown, and Buckhead.

A standalone house that recently came to market is being called one of the premier plans across that full 104-home neighborhood.

The home’s architect, Lew Oliver, and builder, Hedgewood Homes, both count sections of Serenbe in their portfolios, and the European-style Manchester community can feel like that OTP agrarian utopia—only without the commercial villages, but with access to the coveted Morningside school district.

Positioned next to Manchester’s communal pool, with a balcony overlooking the water, the four-bedroom, three-and-1/2-bathroom property is described by listing agent David Tufts of Ansley Real Estate as “incredible” and “a beauty.”

Built in 2017, it counts just over 2,700 square feet and an elevator that connects all four levels. That includes the breezy, lovely rooftop with its loggia, wet bar, and sections for grilling, dining, and all other means of chillaxing.

Other perks include legitimately large, black-framed windows for light to spill in, 10-foot ceilings on the main level, and a wood-burning fireplace in the big living room, plus a courtyard and little grassy area outside.

The property listed at $1,125,000 with Ansley Real Estate on March 17, where it remains today. (Another consideration: the $185 monthly HOA fees.)

It’s not quite the priciest for-sale home in Manchester at the moment, as two others, including one under contract, have listed for more.  

Sales records indicate it last traded for $766,000 in December 2018.
