Freshly painted and poised for Beltline Mania™, this flat-fronted brick traditional is promising a thorough renovation and attractive finishes for a price that might not make buyers house-poor, for a change.
Built in 1968, the house stands a couple of blocks north of recent retail activity around West End’s Gordon White Park, among the first signs of the Westside Trail’s pull for commercial investment. It chalks a “Very Walkable” 71 WalkScore already.
Moving past a front walkway and lawn that do few favors for curb appeal, visitors will find a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom residence where everything—electrical, HVAC, windows, etc.—was recently replaced, per the listing.
That all shows with the clean, open interior, where the stairwell was reworked to allow for maximum natural light and the kitchen was adorned with perks such as soft-close cabinetry. Upstairs, the master bathroom is expansive, with a frameless shower and generous closet.
From the backyard, which could benefit from privacy fencing and sod, the home’s blank-slate rear could probably double as a movie-projector screen. There’s no garage but the driveway and parking pad are freshly paved.
Tallying about 2,250 square feet, this reno listed a week ago at $305,000. Whether it’s really “incredible,” as marketed, is debatable, but it’s definitely a sizable home for a relatively affordable price.
