At first glance, the quaint front covered porch and white picket fence surrounded by lush shrubs and blooming flowers paint a picture of a cutesy house tucked away in the Old Fourth Ward.

However, this initial impression is quickly erased after looking at the interior. Built in 1997, this 2,270-square-foot house is much larger than the exterior alludes to, with three bedrooms and two full baths.

Vaulted ceilings add to the air of spaciousness in the open floor plan that encompasses the living room, kitchen, and dining room. Hardwood floors provide old-fashioned warmth that contradicts nicely with the stainless steel appliances and farmhouse sink in the kitchen.

Future homeowners will find plenty of storage thanks to the built-in cabinetry near the back door along with built-in bookcases in the den.

In the master bedroom, a vaulted ceiling is filled with angles that add interest to the space, while the master bath is much more standard with its double vanity, garden tub, and walk-in shower.

When looking at the backyard, buyers shouldn’t get too excited about the detached one-car garage, for there isn’t actually a driveway leading up to it.

Instead, it seems to serve as an outdoor living space, along with the patio connecting it to the house. There is, though, a single-car parking spot alongside the house.

The $729,900 ask is indicative of where O4W prices have gone in recent years, as buyers are willing to pay premiums for this location. And especially since, per the listing, “The Beltline, Krog Street Market, and Ponce City Market are all just steps away!”
