Described as a “beautiful and completely renovated” circa-1920s home in Historic West End, this listing is highlighted by refinished, original hardwoods, an inviting front porch, and roughly three-block proximity to the Beltline’s Westside Trail. “This home will not last!” warns the agent who listed it 10 days ago.

This tri-level Castleberry Hill loft has bachelor/bachelorette paradise written all over it, with shiny finishes and a home theater (and poker table) currently in the basement bedroom. The general openness, floating stairs, and inimitable, awesome walls of stone and brick are definite perks. Easy walk from here to bars, barbecue, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

This perky, century-old West End renovation has a location described as “just a few blocks from the Beltline, restaurants, brewery's and more in HOT up and coming area of Intown Real Estate that the Young Buyers Desire.” Hold on, it gets better. The sparkling kitchen, “sexy Master Shower and Vanity,” and barn doors are “like something from Chip & Joanna Gaines.” Plusses include the breezy open floorplan and exterior charm, especially from the street.
