Touting Beltline proximity and (basically) a top-secret location, this refreshed 1940s bungalow is that increasingly rare bird in Atlanta real estate: a sizable, solidly remodeled intown house asking less than $300,000.
Find this four-bedroom in Capitol View Manor, tucked off The Connector, a few blocks southeast of Adair Park and the Beltline’s newly paved Westside Trail.
It’s a small southwest Atlanta neighborhood named for its choice views of the Gold Dome, much of it developed by the folks who built Morningside and Virginia-Highland. Or, as the listing puts it, “one of ATL’s best kept secrets,” ranking among Westside Trail neighborhoods as “the quietest, with the least amount of thru traffic, and residents who don't leave.”
Adds Realtor Bryan Gates, of PalmerHouse Properties: “[There’s] so much character in the neighborhood. Newly built library down the street, Emma Park access on the same street.”
Beyond the perky exterior, find an opened-up floorplan, what looks like a working old fireplace, and a bright, corner kitchen with shaker cabinetry.
Elsewhere, there’s a roomy master bathroom (be warned, haters of vertical subway tile) and a bonus room (proposed uses: extra closet, nursery, “she-shack.”) Another plus is a big, flat, blank-slate backyard.
With about 2,000 square feet, the home manages just two bathrooms, but for an asking price of $259,900 minutes from downtown, buyers can’t ask for the moon.
