This renovated five-bedroom artifact in the Old Fourth Ward was already a quarter-century old when The Great Atlanta Fire of 1917 swept through, devouring some 2,000 structures and 300 acres (but not the house at 534 Angier Ave.). Its recent renovation/restoration hybrid weaves 2016 style with 1891 roots in a careful way that's unique in Atlanta, with craftsmanship that looks exceptional. After a week on the market, this 3,400-square-footer was chopped by $100,000, down to $799,000 now. Highlights include beautifully resuscitated fireplaces, keen use of original brick accents, 12-foot ceilings and two-block proximity to Ponce City Market. At this price point, some buyers are bound to quibble with the lack of dedicated backyard living space and garage (though the listing specifies that garage plans are available). It'd be interesting to see how its Walk Score of today (78) compares with that of the late 1800s — if algorithms had existed then, that is.
