SOLD Ansley Above The Park Number 914

In real estate, a “closing day” is always a good day for everyone! There are happy Seller’s that have sold their home and happy Buyers that are going to be moving into their new home! The process should be an easy one, but that is not always the case.

SOLD  Ansley Above The Park Number 914

MyMidtownMojo.com is pleased to have helped Jim, Natalie and Emily call this stunning, three story condominium at Ansley Above The Park home! Natalie was not able to come to Atlanta on the house hunting trip, so Jim and I looked at the options and he sent photos and video back to Natalie in California. She just walked through the door and saw if for the first time this past Saturday morning! She was excited and pleased!

Their closing was an unusual one! They were not only not able to be in Atlanta for closing (so we do what is called a “mail-away closing”) but Jim was in Nevada and Natalie was in New York…so it was a DOUBLE mail-away! Our team at Ganek, Wright and Minsk, Closing Attorneys did an outstanding job of finding our Buyers locations to sign their documents. And they each had to sign the SAME set of documents, so they had to go from ATL to Nevada to New York and back to Atlanta! Whew!

Jim’s lender, John Markham with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage did an incredible job with his team to have a loan package ready and to the attorney for the mail-away process to begin. Here’s a funny side to the story however…and just goes to show that in your real estate purchase, your lender is worth their weight in gold in making your closing be smooth! The SELLER used Wells Fargo to close on their new home purchase and they had a total disaster. They ended up having to delay their closing twice, and almost lost the home they had found! All because the loan officer did not have their “ducks in a row!”

When we work with Buyers, this is one of the very reasons we work with them and recommend the various players they need to have on YOUR TEAM! After all, everyone IS on YOUR TEAM to help you find, and buy the home of your dreams!

Congratulations again to our Buyers and we look forward to seeing them around Midtown!

10 Home Staging Tips for your Atlanta Condo

Atlanta Condo Home Staging Tips July 26, 2015You’ve done everything you can to get your property ready for sale or rental. You’ve renovated, rehabbed, upgraded and created what you think is the perfect home for prospective buyers or renters.

But before you list it and stick that “open house” sign on the front lawn, there’s one final thing you need to do to make sure all your hard work pays off: staging.

10 Home Staging Tips for Your Atlanta Condo

Staging is the art of presenting your property in the most attractive and positive light possible. Done right, staging turns a property into a home and allows people to envision themselves living there.

While factors like location and number of bedrooms can get people in the door, it’s the way that the property captures their imagination that will ultimately influence whether or not they decide to sign on the dotted line.

Luxe Condos Atlanta

Luxe Midtown Atlanta
Luxe Midtown Atlanta

One of the things that condominium living offers you, is minimal maintenance. Especially when it comes to outside things like a pool, hot tub or even a lawn. So, when you live in a condo, you don’t have a yard.

BUT…if you consider living at Luxe Condos Atlanta you actually have a huge front (or back) yard to enjoy. It’s called Piedmont Park. And somebody else mows and maintains it for you!

Luxury living is yours at the Luxe Condos Midtown with wonderful amenities in a boutique building of just 117 homes.  There are 1 and, 2 bedroom homes in this 22 story building. The number of homes has reduced over the years with the combination of some units, so it may be down to 112.

Let’s take a look at some of the amenities you will enjoy as an owner at Luxe Condos Midtown.

Luxe Midtown Atlanta Condos July 20, 2015Luxe Midtown Building Amenities

  • Street-level retail space as well as building lobby and mail room
  • Guest suite with private bathroom
  • Outdoor Pool overlooking Piedmont Park and the Midtown/Downtown skyline
  • Secured, gated parking for residents as well as guest parking (not found in all Midtown condo buildings)
  • Club Room with Flat-screen TV, seating and Catering Kitchen
  • Fitness Center with latest equipment
  • 12th Street address….just 1/2 block from Piedmont Park
  • 24 Hour Concierge
  • Outdoor grilling area

Step inside your home and you will find even more special features…

Luxe Midtown Kitchen July 20, 2015Luxe Midtown Residence Features

  • 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes ranging from 900 – 2,975 square feet
  • Panoramic Views of Piedmont Park and Midtown/Downtown skyline (some homes on the North side of the building will have obstructed views with the construction of Yoo on The Park…ask us for details)
  • Floor-to-ceiling glass, hardwood flooring in Foyer, Kitchen and Living Room, carpet in Bedrooms and tiled Baths
  • Spacious balconies
  • Kitchens feature BOSCH stainless appliances and gas cooking (another rare Midtown Condo feature!!)
  • Granite countertops with 4″ back splash and stainless under-mount sinks

The building was built in 2008 and went through the market downturn with only a few hic-ups! The actual lender on the building, Corus Bankshares ended up going under and some of the remaining homes were moved through a process and later sold by ST Residential. But that is a thing of the past, and the building and HOA are in good shape.

Luxe Condos Atlanta was the first new construction close to the park in may years. Now, there is an apartment building under construction and another building has been proposed, but they will not be as close as Luxe.

Homes move very quickly when they come on the market here, so if this is a building you are really interested in, we can set up a MLS search and notification for you.

Here are the current listings for Luxe Condos Atlanta! 

  1. 2 beds, 2 full, 1 part baths

Atlanta Condos For Sale | Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta

One of the great things about condominium living in Midtown Atlanta is the old saying, “variety is the spice of life.” Whether you are looking for old or new, high-rise or one story, lots of amenities or no amenities, Midtown Atlanta has probably got the building for you.

I used to be able to say we had condos in all price ranges, but that gap is truly becoming smaller and smaller. So, when I have a condo buyer call me and they are on a budget, the first suggestion I make is Cornerstone Village.

Cornerstone Village GATech Off Campus Housing Condos

Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta

Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta is one of the few remaining condo buildings where you can find a 1 bedroom for less than $200,000 and a 2 bedroom for less than $300,000! Of course, there are reasons this building has lower values than some of the neighboring buildings like Viewpoint or Spire. But let’s look at all the benefits of living and owning at Cornerstone Village!

The community consists of 4 different buildings. Two are historic buildings from the 1940’s that have seen some varied uses, and two are newer construction as the development was created in 1999.

Landmark Before After

The Landmark building is the largest building, located on the corner of 5th and Peachtree Streets. Once an office building, the interior was gutted and the current condominiums created in 1998/1999. There is a variety of 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans available, ranging from approximately 625 square feet to around 1300 square feet for the largest 2 bedroom floor plan. The homes in this building feature a range of flooring from concrete to hardwoods. Exposed ductwork and original brick walls (the exterior of the building) are unique features found in the Landmark Building. The building is 6 stories and has two elevators. There are no community amenities in the building…they are located elsewhere within the community.

Cornerstone Village Manor HouseNext, we have the Manor House. This building started out as the Manor House Hotel, and later became apartments before finally becoming part of Cornerstone Village. All the homes in this building are 1 bedroom floor plans. They have a more “finished” feeling with hardwood flooring, granite countertops and finished ceilings. There is no exposed brick or ductwork. I’ve seen some homes that have had changes or renovations made to them that made them much more unique than their original plan. The Manor House has a nice lobby area, and also contains the Fitness Center, a laundry room (left over from the apartment building days…each home has washer/dryer connections) the Movie Theater, a conference room, Resident Package Room and the HOA Management office. The HOA office would be the most likely place for a club room, but it is currently not used for that purpose.

Georgia Tech Off Campus HousingThe remaining two buildings are the new construction section that was built in 1999. Originally, they were going to be apartments that shared the condo amenities. But the sales of the homes in the Landmark and Manor House spurred the developer to convert the entire complex into condos. Called The Gallery originally, these two buildings are most often referred to as the 100 and 200 building. The difference between the two….the 100 building is larger, and has two elevators. The 200 Building is smaller and there is no direct elevator access to the building. These two buildings circle the resort-styled swimming pool and entertainment deck. Here you will find gas grills and seating are for outdoor dining and poolside chillin’! Additionally, in the 100 Building you will find a bike storage room and a game room, equipped with a pool table and foosball table.

I would say the main factors that keep Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta more affordable is the lack of a 24-hour Concierge, and the four different buildings. So, if you live in the Landmark Building and want to use the Fitness Center, it’s not located right in the same building as you might find in the newer, high-rise buildings. But if you can save $75,000 or more on the cost of a condo, it might be worth it, right?

Amenities collage

Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta certainly does not lack for convenience when it comes to location. CVS Pharmacy, Gordon Biersch Brewery, Five Guys Burgers, Fresh To Order and Senor Patron’s Mexican restaurant are all just in the next block!!! On the street level of the Landmark Building, you will find El Scorpion Restaurant, Big Peach Running and recently, Einstein’s Bagels! Just behind the 100/200 Buildings on Cypress Street is Cypress Pint and Plate…with an awesome outdoor patio with a gas fire pit! This is a cool place to hang out for sure!

And then there is the convenience of everything else! Starting with Technology Square and Georgia Tech…just 2 blocks away! Need to get to the airport for a business trip or weekend getaway? The Midtown MARTA station OR the North Avenue MARTA station are about equal distance North or South from Cornerstone Village.

If you are looking for value, and want to live in Midtown Atlanta, then I encourage you to take a look at Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta! There is more than meets the eye to this community!~

Sorry, but we couldn't find any results in the MLS that match the specified search criteria.
