Built in 1915, this three-bedroom, three-bath Craftsman was recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1991, when it received the Great American Home Award.

The award seems well-deserved based on the number of period details that still remain in the house. These include coffered ceilings, wainscoting, and oak hardwood floors featuring a mahogany inlay.

Another notable period detail is the floor-to-ceiling brick and stone fireplace that serves as the centerpiece in the living room.

Modern amenities include the solid wood cabinets, stone countertops, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Built-in cabinets in the family room and bathrooms provide extra storage space.

Speaking of the bathrooms, although modern in function, the pedestal sink and clawfoot tub (with shower) found in one bathroom speaks to the home’s origins.

Interestingly enough, the home’s third bedroom and bathroom is actually found in the detached building, making it the perfect spot for an in-law or guest suite or even home office.

To take advantage of Atlanta’s mostly enjoyable year-round weather, the home includes three outdoor spaces ideal for entertaining: a wide, covered front porch, a screened-in back porch and a private backyard.

Additional storage space is available in the detached building as well as the semi-finished attic. Parking is limited to the driveway beside the front yard.

Given its location near the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, John Howell Park, and Va-Hi hot spots like Murphy’s, the asking price of $849,000 is on target with this market.
