$479K Grant Park bungalow juxtaposes vaulted ceilings, cuteness, secret door

Smartly renovated 1940s property isn’t huge, though, for a half-million bucks

This reimagined Grant Park bungalow from 1944 is big on adorableness—and sweet surprises—if not sheer space.

Find it a block west of Zoo Atlanta, offering three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,577 square feet. It listed last week for $479,900.

Beyond the too-cute front porch and facade, cleverly vaulted living-room ceilings with ladder-accessed, second-floor bookshelves open up the space.

Up there, somewhere, is what the listing refers to as a “secret door,” ostensibly leading to attic storage space.

Elsewhere, the kitchen (with wine fridge) and abundant white quartz is sharp, while the mudroom carved from a back hallway sure looks handy. Beyond that, a sufficiently summertime-friendly back deck overlooks a patch of lawn, girded by what appear to be similarly well-maintained bungalows.

Other perks: lovely hardwoods, master bedroom built-ins, and what’s described as an eco-friendly fireplace, painted white.

The location may boast Tier 1 status with Grant Park’s charter school, but the mandatory street parking could be a sticking point. Although the corner-lot status could help with that.

And like other homes of relatively similar size and vintage in the neighborhood (with eager buyers at the doorstep), the listing reflects the new reality that a half-million bucks doesn’t bag a grandiose Grant Park residence anymore.

Records show this one traded in late 2014, following a renovation, at $353,000.
