For Atlanta homebuyers who’ve scribbled “cuteness” and “alluring color palette” higher on their shopping list than, say, “occasionally used living room,” this Cape Cod in Buckhead’s Peachtree Park could be a darling option.
Built in 1940, this plum-colored, renovated three-bedroom counts an eyelash over 1,800 square feet and specializes in those angular upstairs ceilings of Atlanta’s expanded bungalows.
It’s wedged between Peachtree Road and Ga. Highway 400, walkable to the Buckhead MARTA Station, which helps explain the above-average 74 WalkScore.
The home’s quaintness helps boost an aesthetic the listing agent describes as “warm and welcoming”—a description that applies to the manicured backyard, too. Even double-sided fireplace detractors could find the one dividing the front rooms appealing here.
Other perks include recessed speakers throughout the main level, the surprisingly large kitchen (with new GE Monogram stove), and included plantation shutters. Buyers with glass-block allergies might want to adjust the master bathroom, part of a master suite that consumes the upper floor.
It listed last week for a not-quaint $635,000, which breaks down to roughly $350 per square foot. But combinations of charm, location, and functionality like this are rarely accompanied by make-an-offer-now cheapness anymore.
