While a slew of new condos have gone up around the Decatur Square in recent years, there's something to be said about an older building that's proven its staying power. A worth challenger to all things new and shiny is the perhaps unimaginatively named Historic Decatur Condominiums, which houses this charming $199,000 2/2 unit. The 1932 Mount Vernon throwback is pretty adorable with its flaky white painted brick and copper roofed cupola; the unit itself ain't so bad either. It went through a renovation in 2002 that freshened things up without sacrificing its old school feel; one of the biggest highlights is the reconstructed balcony that provides some essential outdoor space. All in all, it's a great year-round pied-à-terre for exploring the quirky flavor of downtown Decatur.
