Five-bedroom north of park is asking $665K

A bright blue Victorian home recently renovated in Grant Park, Atlanta.
Almost matches the sky.
Sovereign Realty Atlanta; renovation: Urban Purpose

This revived, circa-1920 Victorian bungalow in Grant Park is so blue it’s like a cheery revolt against the grey-ification of Atlanta.

Meanwhile, inside, it boasts a surprising amount of space—with more arched doorways and ceilings than the Taj Mahal.

Poised between Interstate 20 and the north side of the neighborhood’s eponymous park, the five-bedroom property counts more than 3,100 square feet for a newly listed asking price of $665,000.

Those numbers prompt the listing agent to declare: “This is an amazing price for this amount of square footage so close to the park. Act fast!”

Unless it’s an optical illusion, even the home’s roof and the floor of the gracious front porch are blue, which then leads to an interior of soaring ceilings and ubiquitous heart-pine flooring that’s been there for nearly a century.

The open concept spans back to a dual-sink kitchen where blue and grey appear to have met and struck a truce. Beyond that, there’s a roomy deck overlooking the fenced-in carport and deep yard.

An added bonus is the full basement, with carpeting that just shouts coziness but could give Atlanta’s carpet-loathing legions night-sweats.
