Constructed in 1940, this renovated home near Cascade Avenue demands attention, thanks to its dramatic red exterior—one that defies traditional bungalow architecture.
As part of an interesting facade, the covered front porch welcomes neighbors to sit a spell and visit, a charming throwback to years gone by.
Behind that large front door, however, the home reveals a clean, contemporary interior, with its recessed lighting, neutral palette, and thoroughly updated kitchen.
While the square footage is not disclosed in the listing, the house seems cozy rather than cramped, an especially good thing given it contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Although the property includes a private, fenced-in backyard, it’s unfortunate there’s no direct backyard access from the home, at least none that is visible.
The back of the house also seems to be begging for a much-needed deck to dress up its rear potential.
Near the West End Trail and steps from proposed connector trails that will link area parks to the Southwest Connector Trail and Beltline, the house is certainly located near outdoor recreation, not far from downtown.
The property also is close to the Outdoor Activity Center at the West Atlanta Watershed as well as both John A. White and Barbara A. McCoy parks.
Perhaps the location combined with the renovation is the reasoning behind the asking price of $309,900 since it’s nearly double the value of recently sold homes in the area.
That could be changing, though, given that other newly renovated (if not rebuilt) properties in the community are popping up on the market in the $300,000 range.
