2006 renovation on Highland Avenue is chockfull of woodwork, charm

On coveted North Highland Avenue, up the street from D.B.A. Barbecue and The Original El Taco, this legitimately Craftsman-style, reimagined bungalow with bones from the late 1920s is beckoning $949,000.

A transformative, to-the-studs gut job in 2006 resulted in an interior that looks pulled from the pages of Arts & Crafts Homes magazine. Intricate woodwork includes inlaid flooring, an array of built-ins, the living room fireplace surround, and signature beamed ceilings of rich, dark woods.

The redo by Copper Sky Renovations—a team whose renovation-restoration amalgamations dot Atlanta neighborhoods from Kirkwood to Chastain Park—added a second story atop the original brick. And it makes the typical, ground-up Atlanta “Craftsman” look a little simplistic by comparison.

Now, the property counts five bedrooms, three bathrooms (all of which have been renovated this year, per the listing), and one whimsical, zebra-carpeted playroom for kiddos. Even the laundry room looks sharp.

For a property in the one-million-bucks ballpark, however, there is no garage, and the square footage isn’t specified.

But branching off the pro-grade kitchen is an ample patio and gated parking pad large enough for maneuvering two vehicles. Plus, grass.

All in all, even the most devout minimalist would probably be charmed in here.

The home prior to 2006.
