Midcentury Condo Costs $189K at Cusp of Chastain Park

New, 39 comments

Two bedrooms, 1,166 square feet, and a groovy covered porch

For Atlanta condo hunters tired of concrete-and-glass starkness, this unit in a smallish midcentury complex at the cusp of Chastain Park represents a break from the norm in numerous ways.

Built in 1961, the Chastain Walk community is billed as a lovingly maintained "hidden gem" with Publix, Starbucks, and Fresh Market across the street — in addition to Atlanta’s largest public green space.

Inside, the midcentury-ness shines through with the living room’s clerestory windows, while modernized perks include Acacia flooring, upgraded appliances, and a Nest Thermostat system, resulting in what the listing agent calls the "best renovation in its class." (With a price tag of $189,000, this is certainly the lightweight division, but in a good way).

The revamped kitchen might be tight, but it boasts a generous skylight and one of those whack-a-mole electrical outlet features in the granite.

The vitals: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,166 square feet, which isn’t exactly tiny-house living. There’s pool access, a private covered porch, and two assigned parking slots to boot.

It’s worth noting that HOA fee details weren't readily available, which can be a red flag.
