When it comes to their homes, gay Atlantans know how to do fabulous. But there's fab and then there's Grant Henry's luxurious townhouse. The bar owner's Old Fourth Ward home is up for sale for $1.275 million.
For an extra $250,000, the irreverent entrepreneur and owner of Sister Louisa's Church will throw in all the artwork and furniture. But don't try and piecemeal, according to Curbed.
“I’m going to give it a try to sell it furnished,” said Henry, “take my Vans and black T-shirts with me, and leave 100 percent of everything behind, because it fits the loft so well.”
It's a stunning living space down from Ponce City Market that stretches across three levels and nearly 3,900-square-feet. Henry moved in about two years ago but he's ready to downsize.
This is the “L” end-unit at O4W’s Sager Lofts, a unique, minimalist-leaning, live-work project completed in 2005. It includes a garage wide enough for a fridge, expansive patios filled with bonanzas of stylish seating, and what’s basically a backyard of private, manicured greenspace.
For a nearly 3,900-square-foot property, it counts just two bedrooms, but it looks geared more toward martini parties (and possibly a downstairs business, as it’s zoned for) than being a nest for family-rearin’.
Elsewhere, find floating stairs, ceilings higher than 12 feet, and—of course—a room devoted to Ping-Pong.
It's no surprise that Henry is restless and looking for new digs. He's the force that created Church and turned it into a popular, award-winning nightlife hangout – never once being slowed by fire or Jesus freaks. And rather then sit back and enjoy, he then opened retail outlet Church Murch down Edgewood Avenue.
