Bones date to 1930 on Atlanta Avenue, but the reno is fresh

A recent renovation of this 1930 cottage in Grant Park embraces and enhances most of what initially made the home charming, and the efforts appear to have paid off.

Records indicate the four-bedroom property went under contract Thursday—the day it listed for $520,000.

Beyond a front porch mercifully stripped of tired awnings, find a rejuvenated and light-filled living room that’s made good use of its original fireplace and archway.

Follow the attractive espresso hardwoods back to a wide-open kitchen described in the listing as a “chef’s dream,” which then opens to an ample back deck and deep, woodsy yard.

Elsewhere, the house has three bathrooms and a rare finished basement in 2,200 square feet.

Despite the lot being nearly 200 feet deep, there’s no garage but a long driveway for off-street parking.

The listing touts proximity to Grant Park (you’d likely hear the lions roaring from here), plus forthcoming shops at The Beacon and access to the Beltline’s Southside Trail, though the latter might take a while.

The property in January.
