Though it's easy to think of the area near the airport as an outpost of Atlanta, College Park stands on its own as "Georgia's Global City / Air Transportation Gateway" and has the rich architectural history in line with its status as the fourth largest urban historic district in Georgia. Some 867 structures in CP are on the Historic Register, including this specimen built in 1928. The broker babble passes along the speculation that the house was designed by Leila Ross Wilburn, Georgia's second female architect. Which is (potentially) great. But these pedigrees wilt when one enters the home- the disrepair of its interiors is belied by the handsome facade. Though Rugby Street is one of College Park's finest and the house is just a short walk from Woodward Academy, the $198,500 price tag seems likely to scare away the folks up for the large scale renovation the place requires, especially given values of some of the surrounding properties.
