Wedged between Georgia Tech and Atlantic Station in hilly Home Park, this tall brick house incorporates traditional elements like arched doorways and a claw-foot tub, and elements that are decidedly not, like the rooftop patio with a swinging couch. The $769,000 asking price buys a bundle of square footage (3,361), four bedrooms, a top-flight kitchen (some might quibble with the brick, but at least it's consistent), a full wet bar on the mezzanine level and several vantages of Midtown across the way. By Atlanta standards, the listing agent's claim that it's "walking distance to Piedmont Park" is questionable. In terms of price, it's not the only property in this range, in the area, and it's cheaper than it used to be. Listed last summer for $850,000, the home underwent various degrees of price-choppage before delisting at $789,000 last fall. Get this: Records indicate it initially sold back in 2008 for $325,000 — a number that'll make homebuyers hanker for the good ol' days of the Great Recession.
