If you're an Atlanta gay of certain means who enjoys a little nightlife – ok, a lot – there's a Midtown townhouse that will make you even gayer. And probably more popular with your A-list friends.
We told you about 975 Piedmont in July 2014 as the well-appointed cluster of four townhomes was being wedged into a parcel on Piedmont Avenue just steps away from 10th Street. Expansive rooftops spaces perfect for pre-partying, garage parking so your car is covered while you drunk Uber, gourmet kitchens and walk-in showers large enough to shoot porn scenes. (Don't judge. It happens.)
Now the places are built. And expensive. And selling. You've likely missed your chance to buy. Unit 2 sold in January for $731,000, while Unit 3 was snatched up a day later for $820,000. And Unit 4 is off the market too, selling for $797,479.
But in a gay Atlanta world of leased BMWs, faked fabulousness, bottoms who say they're versatile and monthly rent, there's an opportunity here for you: Overpay for this grandeur, month after month after month. One of the units and all of its 3 bedroom, 3 bath glory can be yours – for $6,500 a month.
In fact the listing agent is so excited, he couldn't be constrained by the normal rules of capitalization in describing the lux spot:
LUXURIOUS TWO STOREY TOWNHOME WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE ATLANTA SKYLINE FROM A ROOF TOP DECK. ENJOY THIS ONE OF A KIND SPACIOUS UNIT WITH A GOURMENT KITCHEN, STAINLESS APPLIANCE, OPEN FLOOR PLAN THAT OVERLOOKS A PRIVATE COURTYARD. STUNNING MASTER WITH A LARGE WALK-IN CLOSET. MASTERBATH HAS A SEPARTE TUB WITH AN OVERSIZED WALK-IN SHOWER AND DUAL VANITY. CONVENIENT FOR WALKING TO SHOPS, RESTANURANTS, PIEDMONT PARK AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.
A patio that overlooks Ten and a building that shares a parking lot with Blake's. Think how heavenly that will make your Sunday Fundays. Not to mention mere steps away from Piedmont Park and gay-owned businesses including the Pet Set, Helmet and Campagnolo.
Be warned, though. The “oversized walk-in shower” includes a large window that's clear and not frosted. That's certainly one more way to put your junk on parade for all of Midtown to see.
