Gracious 1903 Home Awash With Architectural Details In a Curbed Cup-Winning Neighborhood

Having secured the 2011 Curbed Cup, Inman Park should probably go ahead and prepare for a stampede of folks looking to take up residence there. For those clamoring to relocate to the neighborhood, we offer a classic listing with historical cred. Built in 1903 by one of the Haas clan (among the founders of the original Atlanta trolley, aka the Metropolitan Street Railroad Co.), the house sits in a prime location across from the Springvale Park duck pond. The 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths are accompanied by grand living spaces and old-school amenities like a sleeping porch and 8 working fireplaces. And it wouldn't be Inman Park without an enormous front porch that begs to be sat upon with a cool beverage during Atlanta's endless summer (and even better, fall and spring). Houses like these require lots of TLC (and not a small amount of money unless you've the time and skills to work on them yourself), but the price was recently dropped to $850,000, down from an original list price of over a million last summer. Compared to some of Atlanta's other 'hoods, there doesn't seem to be a glut of inventory in Inman Park...at this price, we'd bet this house will find a new owner before too long.
