Art-filled Ansley Park titan, pushing nearly $2M, snags contract

Classic four-square style near Atlanta Botanical Garden moved quickly for its price point.

Basically a foundation-up renovation and expansion, this vintage-style, Ansley Park looker appears to have hit the right notes with well-heeled intown buyers.

Brandishing what the listing describes as “amazing finish levels at this price point”—even though the asking price was just shy of $1.8 million—this four-bedroom four square listed in late August and was under contract about two weeks later.

That’s lightning quick at this price point, especially in the autumn.

It’s poised on one the coolest-named streets in Atlanta, The Prado, with 3,453 square feet overall. Assuming the sales price is somewhere near the ask, the breakdown could be a bonkers $500+ per foot.

Beyond a sprawling, classically gorgeous front porch, there’s much to admire in virtually ever room—and there are many rooms. These include a chef’s kitchen with functional butler’s pantry, a study, den, recreation rooms (plural), and a laundry space that’d make many kitchens blush.

Beyond the sweet screened porch is a pebbled, rear-entry drive. While nice, it appears to consume the yard, though the nearness of city-mowed parks could soften that blow.

One can’t help but wonder if WalkScore low-balled the property with its meager 60 mark, given the proximity of Colony Square, MARTA, Piedmont Park, and Ansley’s own chain of lovely green spaces.

Maybe the suburban hugeness of the neighborhood’s lots, generally speaking, had something to do with it.
