Tucked a few doors down from DeKalb Avenue, this circa-1920 bungalow in Inman Park admirably melds vintage touches like pine flooring and a rocking-chair porch with contemporary flair that includes a wine fridge, stylish honeycomb backsplash, and shiplap aplenty.
Plus, it’s so eye-poppingly cyan that stumbling up to the wrong porch would be virtually impossible.
Here on Degress Avenue, a recent expansion has added a new kitchen and bathrooms and resulted in 2,273 square feet of functional fun, punctuated by a backyard shed/workshop described in the listing as “adorable.”
The master bathroom boasts the old-school trifecta of clawfoot tub, stained glass window, and vintage brick fireplace (one of four throughout the home). That could be a first.
For discerning Atlanta buyers with three-quarters of a million bucks to spend, shortcomings could include the sheer number of rooms (three bedrooms, two and 1⁄2 bathrooms) and the carport-only parking situation. Although, as the listing points out, the alley-access carport can pull double-duty as a party space.
And with Little Five Points around the corner and one-block proximity to a MARTA station, you’d think the Walk Score would chart a bit higher than 74, though that’s still technically “Very Walkable.”
It traded hands this past summer for $460,000, which is a sign these updates are as fresh as they look.
