This little house is gone now. They are building a new one. At At 1037 feet above sea level I believe this is the highest new house in Atlanta. And only a handful of Atlanta houses, old or new are higher.
It's going to be a remarkable house. Though not yet complete, it's already on the market and I will blog it.
For now I'll give you a hint from the rooftop deck on a very hazy summer day.
The highest new house in Atlanta is on a ridge-top, poking its roof into Atlanta's famous green canopy. You can see an intervening ridge here. The distant buildings sit on a 3rd prominent Atlanta ridgeline.
Here are some approximate hints thanks to Google Earth.
