Virginia Highland is one of Atlanta's neighborhood treasures. Its original identity was as a stop on Atlanta's Nine Mile Trolley streetcar line, built in the late 1890's by a Georgia Railroad executive and the Atlanta real estate developer George Washington Adair. Adair built his home in the area, which got the "Highlands" started as a residential neighborhood. Today, Virginia Highland is home to some of the city's best restaurants, bars and boutique shopping, and is studded with parks (and adjacent to Piedmont Park) and has great schools. We found this listing interesting given that the Highlands are generally known for leafy streets filled with bungalows and historic houses divided into apartments. But as you see in the gallery, this is a city-slick loft with skyline views and sophisticated features and finishes. With excess condo inventory still haunting Atlanta, 2 bed/2 bath condos near $400k can be a tough proposition. But the location and its proximity to the Virginia Highland lifestyle may get this Seller their price.
