With so much investment activity in the area, and interior design that’s both lively and smart, it’s no wonder this pint-sized but practical condo at downtown Atlanta’s Healey Building went under contract in a jiffy this past week.
That listing price in the low-$100,000s qualifies as savory bait, too.
It’s tough to pinpoint the bigger selling point: location, views, or the 1913 building’s grand-old authenticity. (Okay, it’s the views). With 860 square feet, the main attraction isn’t sheer space, as the price (it listed at $135,000) would suggest.
Vistas from the living-room windows span from Kennesaw Mountain to manmade Atlanta landmarks like Bank of America Plaza and the SkyView Ferris wheel. Centennial Olympic Park, MARTA, and Philips Arena are an easy-breezy walk away.
With a single bedroom and bathroom, the condo would make a swell starter home or righteous pied-à-terre.
Speaking of, the bedroom and bathroom light fixtures look pilfered from the Fox Theatre — echoing the lobby’s classical design — and the updated kitchen is itty-bitty but efficient, with gumdrop brass pendants that add pop.
The monthly HOA fee is a relatively steep $438 but includes Internet, cable, garbage, and concierge.
Added bonus: all closet systems, the sofa, and even bed frame will be included with sale.
