Fans of grand old homes that function to today’s standards in urban settings will probably find much to admire with this 1910 Victorian renovation, just north of Ponce de Leon Avenue in Midtown.
The subject of a "loving" restoration in 2006, which included an architectural roof that’s supposed to last 50 years, this five-bedroom residence weaves traditional styles of 2016 (see the double-island kitchen with its range hood and rustic beams) with the beefy grandeur of high-society, yesteryear Atlanta (high ceilings, period moldings, and the original claw-foot tubs).
The facts: $899,000 for 4,182 square feet and a Walk Score of 88. (The market has recently produced slightly smaller houses in the neighborhood priced way higher, which could make one wonder if the lack of garage is a buzzkill).
Should be interesting to see if location trumps any shortcomings here.
