Does being a personal care home for a couple of decades qualify as stigma? This newly listed, century-old Victorian in Kirkwood hopes not, because that's what it was. But the future could be much more remarkable. The neighborhood is clearly heating up, and this one could turn heads with a listing price of $380,000. The five-bedroom, four-and-one-half bathroom house is a commodious 3,875 square feet, and while currently subdivided into three units, the house is an imposing presence as the "largest on the street," according to the listing agent. This old gal is pretty drab from the curb and in need of some updating — that is, a total facelift and likely major interior modifications. But it sits within walking distance of East Lake MARTA station, shops and restaurants (it's practically neighbors with Sun In My Belly). And with many of her neighbors already rehabbed or newly built, this home, once transformed, could be the grand dame of the street.
