Sizzling Old Fourth Ward will Welcome Upturned Matchbox

New, 5 comments

Brokers are running out of fresh ways to describe the steaming molten madness that is the Old Fourth Ward's residential marketplace. For emphasis, this particular listing employs German and all-caps, calling the neighborhood "uber-HOT." This "stunning new modern home" — again, the agent's words — and its $750,000 asking price had better hope the hype is real. With four bedrooms and more than 2,700 square feet, it'll be a burly thing, that's for sure, strategically positioned around the corner from Historic Fourth Ward Park. A product of Piedmont Ridge Builders (whose offerings tend to lean much more traditional), the house joins a growing crop of modern residences in this pocket of hot-hot-hotsville. Some might quibble with the matchbox-with-perfect-posture design, the Decatur-esque price point or the "oversized" one-car garage. But it touts a commendable 88 Walk Score, which speak volumes for the area's promise.
