Garage enthusiasts of intown Atlanta ... behold Shangri-La.
In what could be the biggest surprise behind an intown bungalow since a municipal-grade Candler Park swimming pool, this 1922 renovation on a pretty section of Blue Ridge Avenue serves up a three-car garage with a not-skimpy carport attached. (Good luck finding that outside of Buckhead and maybe Druid Hills).
For those who covet such things, the extensive storage set-up certainly isn’t the only reason this Poncey-Highland four-bedroom has already been spoken for.
It listed at $799,000 last week and achieved “contingent due diligence” status within six days.
Poised around the corner from Manuel’s Tavern and a PATH Trail link to the Beltline, the property’s redo is described as both exquisite and beautiful, blending vintage charm (see: wainscoting) with a mostly blank, white palette popular today. Gray-washed oak floors enhance the brightness, which some might call refreshing and others overkill.
Around these 2,713 square feet, the listing showcases many close-ups of finishes, which is usually indicative of pride. And sometimes, like here, it’s justified.
The kitchen and master bathroom count marble counters. The strong 83 WalkScore includes walkability to schools. In summation, the listing asserts, the property “has everything on your wish list.”
Records indicate the home hasn’t traded since 2007, when it went for $384,500. Obviously in less sparkling condition.
