It's Curbed Comparisons time again, folks: The time when we pick a round dollar figure and show you what can be had in various parts of the ATL right now. Buckhead? Midtown? East Atlanta? East Lake? They're all covered here, and you're covered too, as long as you've got $300,000 to spend — or if, you know, you'd just like to vote for which property you'd hypothetically choose. One thing's for sure: A budget of $300,000 will take you almost anywhere in Atlanta. Deciding whether you want plentiful space or tight quarters with amenities and primo walkability — that's the hard part.
3235 Roswell Road #716
Square Footage: 1,370
The Skinny: Essentially a next door neighbor to Roswell Road stalwart Buckhead Saloon, this condo is truly in the heart of Buckhead — but it doesn't quite feel like it. High ceilings and exposed brick mingle, um, interestingly with kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. Staged a tad awkwardly in listing photos, the main living space has plenty of potential. (Helpful hint: external flash).
754 Pasley Ave.
Square Footage: 1,918
The Skinny: Nothing overly impressive from the outside, this 1951-built home comes with a two-car garage and a back deck overlooking a sizable, fenced-in yard. There are some fresh hardwoods inside — as well as "new plumbing, electric and HVAC!" Note also the fireplace and spacious master bath.
1080 Peachtree St. #1408
Square Footage: 805
The Skinny: For those more inclined to condo life, here's a 14th-story unit in the 1010 Midtown building with "an unobstructed view down Peachtree." Just one bedroom, one bathroom and barely over 800 square feet — but space isn't what you're angling for if you go this route.
2401 Hosea L. Williams Drive
Square Footage: 1,630
The Skinny: This 1928 bungalow appears to be recently renovated, with really shiny hardwoods and a brick fireplace that matches the home's exterior. With a nifty sunroom, an interesting basement and an intriguing loft area, there are lots of unique spaces here — not to mention a massive backyard.
