A glimpse into the past of this freshly renovated Inman Park house via Google Street View reveals a drab yet inoffensive exterior that probably wouldn't earn a second glance from most passersby. Today, the 2,686-square-foot house's fresh white paint, cheerful red doors and minimal landscaping add a level of curb appeal that could stop you in your tracks. The transformation is akin to having your grumpiest coworker show up at the office with daisies for everyone. If you're down for a touch of quirkiness, you'll enjoy the multitude of unusually placed windows, which deliver natural sunlight into every corner of the open floorplan. The main area features a custom fireplace, contemporary finishes and soaring ceilings; a separate studio apartment can be rented out or used as an in-law suite. The best part? The four-bedroom, three-bath home is a mere three minute stroll to the Beltline and Krog Street Market. It's asking $675,000.
