Grant Park Craftsman is Surprisingly Airy, Modern Inside

New, 16 comments

This circa-1920 house joins only a handful of $600K+ properties in the neighborhood

Don't be fooled by the rocking-chair front porch and fanciful front windows — this century-old Craftsman asking $669,000 in Grant Park has gone contemporary on the inside. On the neighborhood's eastern fringes, a stone's throw from Glenwod Park and Fuqua's controversial endeavor, the property is relatively large (2,352 square feet) for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, and it fuses timeworn charms (the doors, some floors, the preserved fireplaces) and streamlined modernity throughout.

Kitchen countertops of butcher-block and stainless steel are cooly utilitarian, though the pro-grade fridge looks awkwardly lonely in the hallway. One obvious highlight is the bi-level back deck that overlooks a tranquil backyard with a water feature and room for bocce. This pad joins just a handful of $600,000-plus houses on the Grant Park market right now, including this recently reduced Victorian that's larger but now comparably priced.
