Since it last sold, this Peachtree Heights classic has undergone extensive renovations, which is tantamount to giving the prom queen a facelift. Now, it's the kind of property that flaunts a tiny, 20-word listing description, as if to prove that no further effort is needed to sell it, despite the $1.85 million ask. Sprawling for nearly 6,000 square feet, with a fabulous lap pool around back, this porch-loving, traditional-style house shows few signs of its 1920 roots. The "exquisite renovations," per the listing agent, certainly enhanced the home's curb appeal and brightened the interiors, while supplanting cozy elements like the master bathroom's chaise with a claw-foot tub. It's one instance where an elaborate bathroom chandelier looks appropriate, if not necessary, and where the laundry room trumps the size of many condo kitchens. The agent calls this the "perfect neighborhood," which could help explain why it sold in a few days in 2013, when listed for $1.45 million. Back when it was relatively fugly.
