Being a quintessential Inman Park property with an 89 Walk Score and updates that aren't sacrilegious, this circa-1920 bungalow probably checks a lot of boxes for intown Atlanta’s discriminating house-seekers.
Just down the street from Krog Street Market, the four-bedroom, two-and-1/2-bath residence is pitched as the ultimate in city living, with a price $100 bucks shy of $700,000.
Unlike some more modest abodes in this section of IP, it has a non-shoebox 2,078 square feet, plus a few sterling original fireplaces, abundant and charming period trim, plus closets that 21st-Century humans can actually fit inside.
But the real kicker might be the party-ready (but small) backyard, with its Tennessee bluestone patio and zero-maintenance faux grass.
Downsides might be that Lake Avenue, over which this house presides, isn’t exactly a sleepy street devoid of cars. And unsurprisingly, there’s no garage here, but a two-car parking pad and what looks like under-house storage.
It last sold almost exactly a year ago at $660,000, which was over asking.
