For a special Renovation Week installment of Curbed Comparisons, let's journey to renovated rentals throughout Atlanta, from gritty-chic in Reynoldstown, farm fresh in Oakhurst, to one decadent for-lease estate in Buckhead.
INMAN PARK MYSTERY HOUSE
Square footage: 3,400
This freshly redone house in Inman Park now offers a wide-open floorplan, top-flight kitchen, two different kids' rooms, and a quintessentially Southern front porch. But the exact location isn't provided, and listing photos show nothing of the exterior — or much beyond the kitchen, really. No pets allowed.
AUTHENTIC R-TOWN LOFT
Square footage: 970
What this renovated rental at Reynoldstown's historic A&P Lofts may lack in sheer size, it makes up for with authenticity (see: industrial factory windows and original red-clay tile floors). And the listing's statement, "Amazing location on the Beltline" is only slightly misleading, for now.
Square footage: 5,633
This decadent, updated Buckhead estate from 1935 should appeal to visiting actors in Morgan Freeman's age bracket looking for elegant, temporary digs in Atlanta. The agent's pitch: "A truly magnificent property in Buckhead's premier location."
RESTORE OAKHURST FARMHOUSE
Square footage: 3,172
Standing six blocks from the commercial heart of Oakhurst since 1915, this restored farmhouse now offers a gourmet kitchen, a deep private yard, and a dining room that seats 12, which should come in handy after long day plowin' fields.
WESTSIDE BELTLINE BUNGALOW
Square feet: 1,400
This renovated West End bungalow name-drops the upcoming Beltline and points out beautified features like the rocking-chair front porch, redone kitchen, and ubiquitous, pretty hardwoods. Pets welcome "on case-by-case basis," with a fee.
