‘Sexy renovation’ in Grove Park, west of Georgia Tech, desires $260K

While the interior is fresh and modern, the exterior fencing and front porch clash in a fashion that’s less attractive.

Located west of Georgia Tech in Grove Park, this 1940 bungalow recently underwent a number of improvements the listing terms a “sexy renovation.” Take a look at Google Street View, though, and it’s clear this was almost a complete rebuild.

The three-bedroom, three-bath home contains all the expected features like hardwood floors, recessed lighting, stainless appliances, vessel sinks, and a soaking tub in the master bathroom.

However, there’s not much that would be considered “sexy.” The hardwood siding in the master adds interest, but these photos obviously were taken before the project was completed.

The listing also refers to the “large new rear deck overlook[ing] a spacious fenced backyard,” yet there are no photos of the backyard. It makes one wonder what shape said backyard is in.

Speaking of the exterior, both the fencing and the front porch look out of place on what otherwise would be an attractive house.

With a good coat of paint that complements the house rather than clashes with it, these features could be real assets to the property.

Another sticking point could be the asking price of $259,800.

On the surface, the price appears to be appropriate for the 2,011-square-foot home with “features seen in much higher-priced homes” as the listing claims.

But that price also is more than $100,000 higher than similar homes along Hollowell Parkway. It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes this property to receive a valid offer and at what price.
