In the market for a subtle bungalow renovation that brought a World War II-era Atlanta home gently, lovingly into 2017?
This is not that.
Instead, this 1945 cottage within walking distance of the Beltline’s almost-ready Westside Trail has undergone a “sexy” and “ultra contemporary” renovation that aims for flash and wow. But Atlantans aren’t exactly known for understated design preferences anyhow.
If the boundary maps we’re consulting are accurate, this property is in the Ashview Heights community—just
south north of West End, and next door to Atlanta’s smallest neighborhood, Just Us—a few blocks west of Clark Atlanta University.
It counts four bedrooms and two bathrooms among 1,600 square feet, with a floorplan that’s been opened up in every direction—especially up to vaulted ceilings. Fresh wooden additions include a front-yard pergola that acts as a porte-cochère (possibly an Atlanta first), the front-porch accents, and a new deck.
The $199,800 asking price buys stainless steel appliances (with a canopy vent hood), a two-sink kitchen, granite, and a master “retreat” again with raised ceilings.
The neighborhood constitutes what the listing describes as a Massively Appreciating Revitalization Area. Or, well, a MARA for short.
Which could help explain why this home, prior to renovations, went for just $15,000 in December.
