This modified late Victorian was the second home registered in Ansley Park in 1906 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As such, renovations through the years have been carefully executed with an eye for preserving the 4,350-square-foot home's heritage. The nine lovely fireplaces, top-nailed hardwood floors and many of the light fixtures are original to the 108-year-old five-bedroom. Other original features include leaded glass windows, some of the tiles and the door knobs. The kitchen, while updated, maintains the integrity of the period while adding modern conveniences (no, the microwave isn't from the 1900s). Nestled next to Winn Park, amongst other seven-figure homes, the house is priced at $1,549,000, nearly half a million less than it asked just last year. Its Walk Score of 80 is not surprising, given the short stroll to Piedmont Park and all of the conveniences of Midtown. Outside, the buyer can choose between enjoying a view of their lavish backyard fountain/heated gunite pool from the back yard or some of Midtown's most impressive buildings (Promenade II, Bank of America Plaza and 1180 Peachtree, for starters) from the comfort of their front porch. Just imagine what the home's original owners would have thought of that view.
