For better or worse, the bar for single-family real estate in West End has officially been raised.
A five-bedroom property marketed as a breathtaking example of rejuvenated 1920s craftsmanship—located a few steps from the nearly completed Beltline Westside Trail—has closed for $425,000.
That’s $20,000 more than the initial asking price in April—a number that had real estate observers and residents in the area doing double-takes.
On Twitter especially, many dismissed the original asking price as unrealistic, a sentiment that wasn’t baseless. But naysayers may have underestimated the draw of nearly 3,700 square feet with inimitable, original detailing so close to the Westside Trail.
The sale represents the highest price a single-family home has fetched in West End in recent years—and possibly ever. No other house has breached $400,000; this “crown jewel ... mansion” that traded last summer was among the few houses to crack the $300,000 mark, but barely.
“I’m super excited to have made Historic West End history,” the listing agent, Danielle Alleyne, a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, tells Curbed Atlanta. “It was worth every penny and then some.”
Beyond the wood detailing, perks included two original fireplaces, high ceilings, a modernized but appropriate kitchen, and a finished basement both roomy and cozy.
