1950s infill apartments are rather small but big on character

Renovated 1950s apartments in College Park, south of Atlanta.
Billed as “the perfect Madmen getaway.”

Surrounded by 1920s Neo-Colonials on one of College Park’s prettiest streets, these two midcentury apartments are beckoning renters associated with nearby Porsche, the Atlanta airport, Woodward Academy, movie studios such as Tyler Perry’s—or anyone else who appreciates “the perfect Madmen getaway.”

Owner Deb Watts tells Curbed Atlanta she remodeled this six-unit, boutique apartment building from the 1950s—situated behind the Brake Pad restaurant and bar on Main Street—back in 2009.

The two one-bedroom units available now both span 600 square feet and come stylishly furnished, with the distinction of being located in the Curbed Cup 2016’s valiant runner-up neighborhood.

Both units rent for $1,275/month. That’s cheaper than the rising median one-bedroom prices across intown Atlanta, which are more centrally located but rarely come furnished.

Perks include quartz surfaces, hardwoods, stocked kitchens, and two flatscreen televisions. Old Fashioneds come separately.

Here’s unit No. 4:
