Sure, East Atlanta has taken its lumps lately for cowardly acts of criminality, but the area can't be discounted as an affordable intown living option. Exhibit A: this spacious three-bedroom home, asking $235,000. While it might lack world-class finishes or the chutzpah of a Midtown penthouse, the 2,068 square-foot home and roomy fenced yard offer suburban placidity a stone's throw from Interstate 20. Built a decade ago, the home last sold in pre-bust 2006 for nearly $100,000 more than its current ask. Highlights include a covered deck off the master suite and the "entertainer's" floorplan. Lowlights: the single-car garage, some finishes. An added bonus: stained glass!
