For $100 shy of $340,000, this postwar bungalow in the Old Fourth Ward offers almost nothing buyers want except the promise of boundless amenities within walking distance. And obviously, that's a potent currency these days. At 945 square feet, this two-bedroom bungalow is probably about the size of your first post-college apartment, only it's wrapped in brick with a large yard to mow. It occupies the street that dead-ends into the Beltline at the Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park, with oodles of similar but more pleasant prefab-looking abodes. The listing agent declares you can't get any closer to everyone's favorite multi-use path, which would be true if living next door was impossible. Maybe the ubiquitous hardwood floors, fireplace and general exterior sturdiness of the home redeem it enough to spare it, because this would be one pricey teardown. Perhaps a crafty builder could blow out the back and make a shotgun brick log of this baby. Or build straight up. Or maybe cozy and dated, coupled with choice location, is right up your alley.
