For years I’ve wondered about the post-modern grain silo overlooking the Downtown Connector at Freedom Parkway. Curbed Atlanta says the residence, zoned for commercial use, is available for $3.5 million.
Someone bought the lot for $77,000 back in 1996 and built this six-bedroom home two years later, back when the Old Fourth Ward was a little less trendy. They had the foresight to maximize the views with walls of windows and multiple decks. With a cathedral ceiling and stylish spiral staircase, the spaces remain airy. The home has more bathrooms (8) than some elementary schools, with a tiered fireplace and enough panache to make bay windows look hip.
