For fans of meticulously, beautifully restored fireplace mantels ... well, welcome to Shangri-La in Grant Park.
Listed today at $799,000, this five-bedroom relic from 1906 boasts period details galore, including a whopping six restored mantels, each different in color and tiling choice.
Other pieces of the past include original pocket doors, clawfoot tubs, and heart-of-pine floors. (Restrained modernism this is not.) Those throwback elements blend artfully with 21st Century conveniences such as the custom kitchen cabinetry, Viking oven, and newish farm sinks.
Described as a Victorian example of “Grant Park at its finest,” the house counts the asymmetry and generous porch typical of Atlanta Victorians, without the gothic or gingerbread ornamentation.
Wander down to the finished basement to find a pair of bedrooms, a bathroom, office, and bonus room. Property records peg the square footage at 2,500. A slight drawback could be the bathroom count (three) among so much space.
It’s positioned between the park’s northern reaches and Interstate 20, a tucked-away location that’s still good for “Very Walkable” 78 WalkScore. The listing wisely touts walkability to the blossoming commercial and retail district that is Memorial Drive.
Around back, find a cozy screened porch (with lattice work for privacy), an elevated patio area with fireplace, and two-car garage accessed via an alley. Not too shabby.
