At one point or another, Atlanta urbanists have probably wondered what lurks within the brick walls of 441 Marietta St., a two-story downtown structure that proclaims itself "Loft 411." Well, here's the answer. This industrial-chic double-decker encompasses nearly 2,500 square feet, and in many ways could serve as the ultimate bachelor pad. These walls, erected in 1900, can probably contain concert-level noise, and the home boasts more rooftop socializing space than many apartment complexes. The two-story foyer makes spiral staircases seem en vogue, and the heart pine oozes character. Out back, there's a roofless, vaguely medieval party patio and what could be the world's most fortified parking spaces. It sits one block from the Georgia Aquarium, around the corner from the under-construction Hyatt House hotel. A property like this doesn't come cheap (read: $499,900) and that gets just one bedroom, which might be partitioned by mere curtains, per the listing photos. The 62 Walkscore smacks as low, given the growing slate of Luckie-Marietta District offerings. Alternately, this building could be switched to retail, which probably was its purpose at one point in time.
