Growing Atlanta families who figured that spacious, new intown homes in the low $400,000s had gone the way of the gentrified-out dodo might want to think again.
And they might want to look farther afield (and a little more southward) than traditional hot zones like Grant and Ormewood parks.
Here in Chosewood Park, just south of Grant Park, this five-bedroom with relatively restrained urban-farmhouse flair listed in February at $425,000. Records indicate it waited on the market for about five weeks before going under contract in late March.
The site’s 1924 predecessor sold for $62,000 last summer, according to city records. And the property, now with 2,850 square feet, has been thoroughly reimagined since—to the point the listing agent dubs it “magazine worthy.”
It’s maybe three blocks south of what will eventually become the Beltline’s four-mile Southside Trail, which is currently in planning phases.
On the other side of said hypothetical Beltline is the under-development The Beacon—described as “the next Krog [Street] Market” in the listing—and attractions such as Eventide Brewing and D.H. Stanton Park.
Furthermore, the listing promises “at-grade access to the Beltline and gorgeous parks [that] will replace the [nearby] industrial and City of Atlanta recycling center just months from now.”
So someone knows how to stress the potential of location.
As for the home itself, it offers a gated parking pad but no garage, with an interior checklist of 2017’s hottest facets: reclaimed-wood vanities, shiplap, subway tile, open kitchen shelving, and marble. Other perks include 10-foot ceilings and what’s described as an all-caps BREATHTAKING staircase, which is a nice touch.
All and all, it’s a big bang for the buck in what’s an under-the-radar area for now.
