Inside Old Fourth Ward Bungalow's Dramatic Redo

$75K changed the DNA of this little brick abode

Ever wonder what $75,000 can do for a World War II-era brick bungalow in the Old Fourth Ward? This recent gut renovation on East Avenue, around the corner from Historic Fourth Ward Park, provides the answer.

Johnny Gonzales, of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, paid $295,000 for this "very tight" three-bedroom, two-bathroom abode with a little screened porch last summer. The bachelor brought in True Worth Development for the overhaul — opening it up to a single bedroom (but configured so a second sleeping quarters could be added later) with one and 1/2 bathrooms.

After the property's $75,000 facelift, Gonzales kept it as his personal home, with plans to hold it until next summer.

The result is a refreshed bungalow with good flow, a luxe master closet, stacked stone fire pit, oodles of ATL and O4W pride, and no shortage of vintage Playboy memorabilia.
