Not far from Agnes Scott, eats, and greenspaces, this 2006 offering has porches and charm to spare.

Built in 2006, this Kirkwood Craftsman-style home near Bessie Branham and Oakhurst parks serves a blend of original features and updated amenities that create a rather charming picture.

Think 10- and 12-foot ceilings throughout, decorative crown molding, a window seat, new hardwoods in the master, and new appliances in the kitchen.

Of course, there’s also the “level of finishes” that the listing claims differentiates this property from those available in new construction.

From the stone fireplace to the tile and stainless in the mid-aughts-y kitchen to the bathroom flooring and tile, there certainly is a variety of finishes.

However, nothing jumps out in listing pics that sets the home apart from what’s currently used in new construction or even recent renovations.

The home appears spacious with three bedrooms and three bathrooms on two floors, but with a square footage of 1,872 square feet, the rooms may appear larger in the photos than they actually are.

The back deck would make a nice host for outdoor entertaining, especially with the fire pit in the backyard. And having a two-car garage is also a nice bonus.

However, while the $573,500 asking price isn’t out of line for the neighborhood, the cost of $306 per square foot remains quite a hefty fee for the property.

Although with a decent walk score of 61, and being just 10 minutes from the East Lake MARTA transit station, this home could be worth the investment for buyers looking for a quiet neighborhood close to shopping, dining, and entertainment.
