‘California dream home’ in Doraville seeks $250K

New, 13 comments

Tongue and groove ceilings, modern kitchens and bathrooms, 1,811 square feet

Looking for a funky ITP mid-century modern for under a quarter-mil? You're in luck, with a newly listed "California dream home" — just a hop, skip, and a jump from Spaghetti Junction — located in Doraville's historic Northwoods neighborhood.

It boasts most of the trappings one has come to expect from similar mid-century modern architecture such as tongue and groove ceilings, but has been tastefully updated with a 21st century kitchen and bathrooms.

Listed recently for $250,000, the property went on the market for $199,000, post flip, nearly three years ago and sold months later for $189,900. The new list is a clear indicator of just how hot the market is in Doraville.

Built in 1958 and featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 1,811 square feet (and a big lot), it has a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and an island overlooking the family room.

A registered historic neighborhood, Northwoods is described in this listing as having "wonderful mature landscaping, wide streets, and multiple parks." Located at the "end of a quiet cul-de-sac" and just a short walk from an elementary, a middle, and a high school, this MCM could be perfect for a family seeking a bit of suburban seclusion inside the perimeter.
