When a listing agent declares "nothing comparable in Atlanta," the natural reaction is an incredulous roll of the eyeballs. But that boast might have some validity here. We've seen old cabooses transformed into guesthouses, but this restored 1920 bungalow takes reclaimed materials to the next level. Soulful and beautifully decayed reclaimed boards are abundant here, from the porch swing to the kitchen. The basement/bunker/wine cellar is structured in a way we've never seen, which could make for difficulty getting up and down but should maximize privacy. The restrained, modern feel extends to the pergola and the gigantic backyard. Among the 1,564 square feet are three roomy bedrooms and two bathrooms. All this ingenuity comes at a price, of course: $459,000. With this home, someone has clearly invested in the future. It sits about two blocks from the under-construction Ponce City Market, but a little more than a block from Boulevard.
