Grant Park residents speak of the joy that is listening to wild animals roar in the urban night, and this century-old bungalow has a front-row seat to such things.

Poised since 1905 on Cherokee Avenue, directly opposite Zoo Atlanta, this delightfully renovated four-bedroom doesn’t come skimpy with porch-swing, creaky-floor, and gorgeous-fireplace sort of charms.

The inviting porch opens to a gaping foyer, which then reveals a flow between rooms that builders of 2017 might be wise to emulate. Perks include the marble countertops, eat-in kitchen with a nifty breakfast nook, the legit laundry room, and a master closet upstairs with ample space for, maybe, cartwheels.

The biggest surprise, obviously, is a detached apartment in the backyard (described as “new” and “in-law”) with a kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. You don’t see that every day.

The listing mentions off-street parking, which would be key in this location, given the proximity of the zoo and a festival haven like the neighborhood’s primary greenspace. Which contributes to the 73 WalkScore, signaling "Very Walkable" status.

It’s unclear how the backyard tiny house contributes (or doesn’t) to the square footage, but the asking price of $799,000 would appear ambitious for a home of 2,272 square feet in the area.

Records suggest no other property of that size has recently sold in the $700,000s.
