In Old Fourth Ward, this is how far $800K goes right now

1,400 square feet and no garage, but Beltline baby!

Maybe it’s a typo, but this 1930s overhaul in a piping-hot pocket of the Old Fourth Ward is listed as having just over 1,400 square feet. That’d make it a little bigger than an average newer condo in Atlanta.

(UPDATE: We're informed this house is actually almost 2,700 square feet, excluding the detached studio, contrary to listings).

For a house with four bedrooms, that would be illogical. And the $570/square foot ratio would seem absurd for Atlanta. Especially for a place with driveway parking and zero backyard. So it must be wrong. Or maybe O4W has gone more nutso than previously thought.

For an even $800,000, the renovation itself looks clean, the redone kitchen simple and beautiful (nice quartz-swirls on the waterfall island!), and the EcoSmart fireplace snazzy. Meanwhile, the detached studio around back looks a bit like solitary confinement with better ceilings.

The "über-HOTT" location is certainly "mere steps to the Beltline and Ponce City Market," as the agent puts it. So maybe that’s what matters.

With comps like this one that sold around the corner for $819,000 this month, the ask makes more sense. If the house that sold was half its size, that is.
