A cheery, light-filled unit in a historic building on Ponce de Leon Avenue hit the market for $175,000 yesterday, in time for patio enjoyment before the swelter and mosquitoes come. With a large living room, two bedrooms and one bathroom, the top-floor walkup at the end of the building has tons of windows and two balconies, one which overlooks the recently refurbished courtyard with views of Bank of America Plaza. Located in the Massellton Condominiums — built as luxury garden-apartments in 1924 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places — it's just a short walk to Peachtree Street for quick access into Midtown or downtown. Also nearby is Piedmont Park, the Beltline and Ponce City Market, lending to a Walk Score of 84. While the condo's Crayon-box paint scheme may be a bit overwhelming to some, the size, openness and location are hard to beat in a neighborhood with quickly escalating prices.
