A block from Grant Park’s central green space, this updated traditional bungalow typifies the sort of older Atlanta residence that’s simultaneously vintage and stylish.
Highlights include four lovingly resuscitated fireplaces, the airy 12-foot ceilings, appropriate clawfoot tub, and a screened back porch that just aches with Down South soul. The ubiquitous smart furnishings and eye-catching wall art don’t hurt, either.
Built in 1924, the home counts an open floor plan, 2,318 square feet, four bedrooms, and heart-pine floors aplenty. It listed about two weeks ago at $530,000.
With a less inviting front yard, the property sold almost exactly two years ago for $420,000 but has undergone upgrades to the aesthetics and the guts (the plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and roof are newish, per the listing).
For a half-million bucks, though, some might pine for a larger kitchen island and more beautified backyard, which is at least private. And no need to flip out, vehicle lovers: There is driveway parking that the listing photos don’t show.
