1893 Grant Park traditional oozes rustic-chic style

New, 20 comments

$650K buys four bedrooms and 2,560 square feet a block from the park

Last year, a study called the U.S. Style Census described Atlanta’s signature home décor as "shabby chic," a mix of vintage warmth and current flash. This modernized 1893 residence in Grant Park would appear to epitomize that aesthetic, with a touch of metrosexual cowboy.

Listed for $649,900 last week, the four-bedroom charmer a block from Grant Park is the antithesis of the stark minimalist trend, with warm woods, four pretty fireplaces, and chandeliers that straddle the line between opulent and cool.

Find loads of rustic shelving — including the open-face variety surrounding the kitchen’s Viking appliances and, um, paint-brush art — around these 2,560 square feet.

The vintage charm falls by the wayside out back, where the fenced yard boasts a new trek deck and what looks like synthetic turf. Because yard work is so 1893.
