Built in 2000, this two-story Craftsman in the Old Fourth Ward probably qualifies for the endangered species list. It's east of Boulevard, blocks from the Beltline and doesn't cost a ½ million dollars. The $410,000 price isn't exactly affordable housing, but three bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms, a two-car garage and a large backyard in this neighborhood will take some jack to attain. The elevated, palm-dotted deck off the master suite boasts "fantastic city views," per the agent. And the fact that there's another deck and a patio below that is pretty righteous. The bathroom finishes won't exactly shame the St. Regis, but they look beyond serviceable. As for hindrances, it'd be tough to get lost in 1,736 square feet, and the home's two-block proximity to Boulevard undoubtedly helps to keep the price down. But overall this is an attractive package that many folks can probably still attain.
