Near a Beltline segment, this cute and cozy traditional lingers on the market after tidy discount.

Located in “desirable” Collier Hills, this 1946 Cape Cod offers a charming experience, both inside and out.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home includes picturesque touches like the fireplace-turned-bookshelf, the curved wall of windows in the master bedroom, and the expansive deck overlooking the fenced backyard.

But with just 1,289 square feet, the house is tiny, and the angles in the upstairs bedrooms further reduce the usable space in those rooms.

On the other hand, the location is ideal for ITP buyers wanting a quiet Buckhead setting at least a bit removed from Atlanta’s busy streets—yet with access to the bustle in minutes.

Near the intersection of Northside Drive and Collier Road, the house backs up to the Bobby Jones Golf Course in Atlanta Memorial Park, and is just steps from the Beltline’s Northside Trail.

The property has been on the market for 30 days and appears to be a tough sell, even with a slight $5,000 price cut three weeks after its initial listing.

The current asking price of $494,900 is on the low end compared to other homes sold in the area; of course, considering some of the neighboring properties are valued in the $1 million range, that’s not too surprising.

For buyers looking to live in Buckhead on the (relatively) cheap, this could be a nice compromise. Especially if they’re patient enough, as the listing notes, to wait out an expansion into the backyard, if budget would allow.
