Homebuyers searching for something out of the ordinary will find it in this 1940 granite house in the southern reaches of Ormewood Park.

Built by a firefighter who obviously placed a priority on fire prevention, this ranch contains three bedrooms and two full baths in 1,442 square feet.

The flooring speaks to the original builder’s build-as-you-go approach, with pine flooring in the living and dining rooms and oak flooring in the hall and two of the bedrooms. He didn’t have enough of either wood to completely floor the third bedroom, thus, you’ll find an alternating pattern of pine and oak in this space.

As part of recent renovations that lead to the $449,000 asking price, the walk-through kitchen now contains chestnut contemporary custom cabinets, leathered granite countertops, and stainless appliances.

Carrying out the midcentury theme, the tiled kitchen backsplash was added behind the stove and range hood.

The master bath also received attention and now showcases a cabinet vanity with single sink and a walk-in, tiled shower. According to the listing, the “pièce de-résistance is where the master dressing room opens to the back covered porch.”

But the real pièce de-résistance is the back covered porch itself, which provides ample room to enjoy Atlanta’s fabulous weather.

There’s a small courtyard as well, but no yard to speak of. And parking is limited to a concrete pad behind the house.
