Agent predicts character-rich flat on Midtown’s eastern flank will be gone in a flash.

On the market for the first time in a decade, this atypical unit could appeal to Atlanta condo hunters in the mood for genuinely old character in a setting built to stand the test of time.

It’s a bottom-floor offering at The Wilsonian, a 1914 building slotted on Myrtle Street between Mary Mac’s Tea Room and North Avenue.

Per the enthusiastic listing, it’s a “stunning renovation” of 1,284 square feet in Midtown’s historic boutique district, blending inimitable details (walls of ancient stone and brick, original moldings) with newer additions (black granite, big tiles).

With ceilings that don’t exactly soar, and walls so clearly thick, it’s a safe bet heating and cooling won’t cause financial ruin.

Described as “unique” and “flexible,” the two-bedroom, two-bathroom floorplan includes a little foyer and opens to a rather spacious patio area. At $355,000, the breakdown here is $276 per square foot, which is certainly a discount over more central parts of Midtown. “Check comps,” the listing urges, “priced to sell!!”

The sterling 86 WalkScore, as the listing points out, includes walkability to the Fox Theatre, Piedmont Park, and (less so) Ponce City Market.

Collectively, it’s something different for space-conscious intown buyers. But whether the listing agent’s prophesy—“First time on the market in 10 years but not for long!”—will come true remains to be seen.
