A Mod in Berkeley Park
Berkeley Park is a neighborhood in West Midtown, established in 1921, and for a time was considered a part of Underwood Hills. In 1996, Berkeley Park was again recognized as an official neighborhood in the city of Atlanta. The neighborhood boundaries of Berkeley Park are I-75 to the north, Northside Drive on the east, Howell Mill Road to the west and 17th Street to the south.
The neighborhood is convenient to everything-being right off I75, and even boast a shopping center- (my girls love to get Pizza at Little Azio’s).
What really caught my eye were the more modern homes popping up among the typical ranch houses.
This one in particular is a favorite as the exterior is not as cold as you usually see. The architect (or owner) opted for a cedar siding, which makes a HUGE difference. Usually you see more of the concrete or grey siding, giving the overall impression that the inside will also be cold (which I’ve found many to be.) I don’t know why architects equate mod/simplicity with faceless sculptures and freezing grey concrete…. maybe it’s a budget thing or maybe they need to read a little more than DWELL. I think the owner of this home did a pretty good job at keeping it simple but warm on the inside too. Take a peep at the interior pictures HERE.
