Atlanta condo buyers who consider dead space the devil might perceive this bi-level Inman Park loft as city-living made righteous.
Which is to say it ain’t huge. But neither is the price.
This is one of 17 residences at the Marble Lofts, a 1940s DeKalb Avenue building that supplied granite and marble countertops to the Southeast before a 2006 conversion. Per the listing, it’s a half-mile walk to the Beltline and Inman Quarter hotspots, which allegedly means, “It doesn't get more central to living the Intown Lifestyle than this!”
The building’s soaring wood-slat ceilings and exposed metalwork are attractively unique, while the sparse communal rooftop could probably cook meat without a grill in summer.
Anyhow, back to this “sexy” and “well-loved gem” of a unit ... it counts two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 880 square feet, which is tight by Atlanta standards. But the $224,900 ask — plus $260 monthly HOA fees — is an increasingly rare price point for homeownership in choice neighborhoods.
A plus: two dedicated parking spaces. Not a plus: the closets.
The 78 Walk Score isn’t shabby for DeKalb Avenue, surely owing to the MARTA station a couple of blocks away. And this could mark the first instance of an Inman Park listing actually touting proximity to Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown — and not vice versa — where “fun times” await.
