The rocket-ship motif on the porch ceiling of this preserved Craftsman bungalow in Candler Park is the first indication that a visitor might be in for surprises.
And the unexpected does abound across this McLendon Avenue double-lot, which comes with a party-ready swimming hole around back—plus a jackpot 89 WalkScore indicative of its location at the doorstep of Little Five Points.
Beyond the charming, symmetrical facade and porch swing, find two (of four) fireplaces and original hardwoods, with Arts & Crafts leanings and period details galore. With high ceilings, wide-open rooms, and a top-flight kitchen, this 1909 relic is fittingly marketed as an “entertainer’s dream.”
There’s a spacious back deck that leads to a lower-level hot tub, which then unveils a lawn, and—surprise!—a full-size backyard pool girded by spacious lounging zones.
As is, the shortcomings are the low bedroom (two) and bathroom (also two) counts among a house with nearly 2,200 square feet.
The listing stresses that the front office could be walled in for a third bedroom—and that permanent stairs lead up to an expandable attic—but the $750,000 asking price might not leave much room for such pricey alterations.
Maybe a buyer could charge admission to the pool.
