About a block from the Edgewood Retail District, this energy-efficient but classic bungalow has languished on the market for nearly 300 days, its perks be damned. Full of reclaimed pieces (the fireplace, the front door) and architectural accents, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom offering debuted last May for $439,000. The most recent slashing brought it to $399,000 last month. It was built by Buffalo Creek Construction, a local outfit who's been putting up homes since the '70s in Virginia-Highland, Candler Park and Lake Claire, before shifting focus to infill lots in Edgewood, Kirkwood, Decatur and East Atlanta. Listing photos suggest they didn't cut corners. Note the uncommonly huge masonry fireplace and patio out back, and the bathroom tiling. It lacks a garage but has a porte-cochère, and the overall space is large at 2,360 square feet. So maybe the old-fashioned, button-style hardware on the cabinetry is dissuading buyers? Maybe the street is meth-lab central (Google Maps doesn't seem to know)? The Walk Score is respectable at 66, with more dining and shopping ostensibly on the way. All of this equates to a bona fide, intown head-scratcher.
