The perky, highly detailed dormers and rambling, wraparound porch should alert picky homebuyers that this Decatur classic isn’t a typical Atlanta Craftsman.
Per the listing agent, the award-winning 1925 property has been reimagined to suit modern tastes, with a 79 Walk Score to boot. Fans of the classics will probably swoon. Wallpaper haters should prepare to shriek.
It stands across the railroad tracks from Kimball House, in what’s touted as "a setting like no other," where one can "enjoy the edgy vibe of East Decatur at Decatur's most Historic Row." Okay.
An exterior paint job that accentuates the period details extends to the garage, which neighbors a delightful patio with a gas fire pit.

The vitals: four bedrooms and four bathrooms for a grand total of $769,000.
