Naturally, a Candler Park Renovation Prospect Has Some Issues

[Images via Keller Williams Intown]

It's always amusing to hear Atlanta's early neighborhood pioneers wax poetic about the days when a shoddy bungalow in Midtown or Inman Park or Virginia Highland could be purchased for a song, given the not-so-shabby pricing on those same homes today. Many a rough diamond has been polished since the I-485 battle. However, on the edge of Candler Park, this dingy 1915 Craftsman presents quite the opportunity for someone who's not afraid of a challenge. With a listing price that's 2.5 times cheaper than the neighborhood's median, we're sniffing a deal. Then again we haven't seen the inspection report. For someone who appreciates original details, they're all here: floors, mantles, moldings - heck even the front door remains. Not as charming are the falling ceilings, nor that wreck of a basement, as well as all the terrifying things happening on the home's rear. Fans of Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movies to the front of the line.
