The shock of homes listing—and in some cases, selling—for north of $900,000 in the Old Fourth Ward is a thing of the past, for better or worse.
The neighborhood’s post-recession property value upswing seems to have no ceiling, and especially when it comes to homes touting the latest in amazing modern style. The O4W has no shortage in that department.
The latest such offering is a 3,000-square-foot new-build tucked beside Freedom Parkway on East Avenue, linked via a pedestrian bridge to Inman Park and the Beltline, with the splendors of Ponce City Market and Historic Fourth Ward Park around the corner the other way.
Counting four bedrooms and three and 1⁄2 bathrooms, the property listed earlier this month at $940,000. It’s the work of Trident Intown Developers with interiors by Angelika Taylor, per the listing.
The crowning attraction here, literally, is a huge and wide-open roof deck suitable for any summer soiree—or a tennis match with partial downtown views. Adjoining the deck is what’s described as a sky lounge with a wet bar and flex space.
In lieu of a garage, an attached carport—described as covered, secure parking behind an electric gate—is a work of single-lane concrete, grass, and pavers.
Heading inside, the main living area takes open concept up a notch with large rooms, 12-foot ceilings, and nary a gratuitous wall.
The kitchen boasts top-flight Viking appliances and a unique combo of white-and-pretty-woods cabinetry. For continuity, the wood (and white) continues into bathrooms, including the marble-rich master.
Collectively, it’s described as “sleek elegance.” And when combined with choice intown location, that comes at a price.
