Help us out here, longtime Atlantans: Does anyone recall the exact year Inman Park turned the corner from "affordable, up-and-coming enclave" to decidedly not? We've heard the horror stories of Inman Park slumlords and pit bulls chained to burned-out cars (no, seriously). Those times are pretty much unfathomable now, when a 1917 bungalow can fetch nearly ½ million. "Atlanta's First Suburb" is studded with century-old jewels, and this two-bedroom, vintage craftsman on Washita Avenue is clearly one of them. Think: crown moldings, window seats, built-in bookcases, heart pine everywhere. Several descriptors come to mind: "simple, clean, elegant and classic." Located near Little Five Points, this one isn't sprawling at 1,341 square feet, but the layout seems sensible, and the 10-foot ceilings are a plus. The ask is $459,000. No burned-out cars in sight.
