Atlanta’s Castleberry Hill neighborhood is chockfull of large, quirky, gorgeously imperfect loft spaces. But this is on another level.
Listed for sale a week ago, 261 Peters Street SW is a meandering escapade of one eccentric, airy, inimitable loft space after the next. It has eight bathrooms. And there are four kitchens—one for every bedroom.
Like other mega lofts in the district, there’s a commercial component for a mix of uses within these 18,000 square feet on Peters Street.
Collectively, it’s asking $2.3 million.
At that price, records indicate the property is gunning to be the artsy neighborhood’s priciest loft sale ever, on the heels of another gigantic home/studio trading hands for $2.25 million in February.
This building, described as a “historic mixed-use gem” and “oversize loft experience” dates to 1897 and actually includes three addresses. Most bedrooms are the size of typical apartments. (The official name: Stable 1897.)
Inside, find walls constructed of salvaged doors and rooms partitioned by old windows just strung together. Original hardwood floors, high ceilings, exposed brick, and hefty timbers abound. A private greenspace around back is gated by a tapestry of branches, as if constructed by giant cardinals. And somehow, that’s perfect.
The ground floor offers two retail spaces (one recently used for bike repair), plus a 2,600-square-foot area in the rear with a private entry.
Per the listing, that back space would be an ideal recording or yoga studio, communal art hub, or Airbnb option. Parking: six garage spaces, with two more reserved off the street.
Walkable attractions have been described as the area’s “ring of fire” developments. That is, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new Reverb by Hard Rock hotel, and both Artisan Yards and Centennial Yards, where a two-story Wild Leap brewery and distillery was just announced as the first retail anchor.
Head to the above gallery for a tour of this rambling loft space—and don’t forget to bring your imagination.
UPDATE, April 30, 3:20 p.m.: This article has been updated to reflect the property has eight bathrooms, not 16, and six garage spaces.
