No one said breaking into the swanky world of Ansley Park real estate would be easy. With the average home in this coveted ‘hood hovering around the $1,000,000 mark, you’d better bring the Benjamins. Really though, when this 1915 3 bed 2 bath Craftsman bungalow represents the lower end of the Ansley spectrum, who’s complaining? The bad news: it sits right on busy Piedmont Avenue. The good news: basically everything else. Vintage details abound, as in beamed ceilings, built-ins, and original wood floors. But you wouldn’t mistake this for a fixer upper. Essential modern renovations have already been made where it really counts - the kitchen and bathrooms. Okay, maybe the vessel sink and the patterned countertop and the accent band and the mosaic tile all together are a little much in the master bathroom, but to each his/her own. Top the whole thing off with a cute-as-a-button backyard and you’ve got yourself the perfect $499,000 Ansley Park “starter” home.
