(UPDATE: Contrary to the listing, this home wasn't entirely built this year).
At first blush, this appears to be one of Atlanta's bazillion artfully updated bungalows from the early 20th Century. But wait! A closer look reveals this three-bedroom abode in the leafy section of Midtown was built, like, yesterday. Which raises the question: Is this a dream blend of new construction with vintage style or a disingenuous poser? The listing agent describes the style as "bungalow chic," with those large closets coveted in the 21st Century and "no detail overlooked." Built on the foundation of its 1930 predecessor, the 2,166 square-foot home is buried in the residential trapezoid formed by Ponce de Leon Avenue, Monroe Drive, 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue. Perks include vaulted ceilings, built-in bookshelves, Verona stove and delightfully green back yard. The marble touches are nice in otherwise heavily traditional bathrooms, but that aesthetic is probably apropos. Another question: Will this place sell for the $649,000 it wants, or do Atlantans prefer more flash for that much moola?
