Be warned: This lustrous loft space in the heart of Virginia-Highland could be haunted by the ghosts of macchiatos past. Formerly a coffee shop, the long, open space with blonde maple everywhere has been flipped to a stylish loft that could pull double duty as an in-home photography studio. (Just don't envision a reincarnated café; this one's zoned residential now.) At 1,290 square feet, it's bigger than you might expect, but the space is limited to a single bedroom and bathroom. The bones here date back to 1920, and behind the place you'll find the galvanized shed/workshop of your dreams. It's a unique, sleek space, but whether it's $450,000-worthy remains to be seen.
