Located in Cabbagetown and on the edge of the Old Fourth Ward, the Stacks Lofts are one of Atlanta’s coolest loft communities. Completed around 1880, the rambling structure was originally the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills, one of Georgia's most successful late 19th century textile mills. The goods produced by the mill evolved and changed over the years and the mill ceased manufacturing around 1976.

According to a wonderful history of the lofts and their conversion into residential spaces by Katie Black, the windows were a focal point in the design and no window frames are exactly the same size.

“We kept the window company busy for a year,” said developer Tom Aderhold. Another focal point: the large community pool framed by the ruins of the Old Bleachery. Aderhold said that they were trying to figure out where to put the pool when an architect suggested in a meeting to actually put it in the building and consequently the modern pool integrates perfectly with the old façade. The pool is definitely our favorite design element of the shared spaces. There is also a gym and charming garden path.

There are currently a few lofts available for purchase including a sizable one bedroom unit that is larger that most of the two bedrooms. Measuring rough 1,600 square feet, the garden level home features a walkway to the front door and a south-facing bank of windows. The 20-foot high ceilings have exposed ducts and pipes and raw concrete walls. The kitchen opens to the large living space and features stainless appliances and granite countertops.

A spiral staircase leads to the large sleeping area that has space for an office and sitting area. It also has a large walk-in closet with an adjacent sitting area. It’s priced at $199,500 and will go fast. To see the property, contact listing agent Travis Grubb at Keller Knapp Realty. And to find of more about the Stacks community, visit their web site.
