Adherents of Atlanta’s Tudor stock are usually in heaven on the streets of Virginia-Highland and Morningside, and for such folks, the segmented porch arches of this Rosewood Drive property probably look like the pearly gates.
Primely situated two doors down from Highland Avenue, this 1929 four-bedroom is described as a “walker’s dream,” with the commercial nodes of both Va-Hi and Morningside in easy hoofing distance. (WalkScore’s “somewhat walkable” 65 classification is surely hampered by nonexistent rail options in the area, which may be of little concern to buyers here).
The listing goes so far as to call the location “perfect” and the home “the quintessential Virginia-Highland Tudor,” with a cozy front porch well-suited for rocking chair evenings.
It counts a broom closet shy of 3,600 square feet and listed this week at $1.25 million.
Inside, find a heavily traditional vibe overall and finishes described as “top-of-the-line.” The large kitchen boasts Wolf and Sub-Zero brand names, and a somewhat unexpected perk is the whole-home sound and automation. The fireplaces are nice, while elsewhere downstairs there’s a handy office/butler pantry combo.
Discerning buyers in this pricing echelon might crave bathroom updates, especially when it comes to tile.
Around back, the lushly landscaped yard includes what might be Atlanta’s beefiest carport. No patio or deck space is pictured back there, but logic says there must be somewhere to hang out.
Food for thought: This property last sold in 2012 for $835,000 (likely prior to some updates), which was $40,000 less than it’d gone for in 2005.
And so goes the gamble of Atlanta real estate.
