In Atlanta’s hottest intown locales, the new reality in many cases is that a million-dollar homebuying budget still requires making concessions—as looney as that may sound. This includes modern dwellings with smallish carports, others with shared walls, and so forth.
Up the hill from Ponce City Market, in what’s marketed as one of the area’s “most desirable locations,” this recently reimagined, circa-1920 bungalow “oasis” is no exception.
For $975,000, buyers would land a quite roomy redo that honors classic elements (stained glass and rejuvenated fireplaces), but they’d have to settle for pad parking around back. And an unfinished basement. And three bathrooms across upwards of 3,300 square feet.
Highlights begin with the gaping front porch (wipe your feet) and continue through the expanded upstairs, which now boasts a balcony, loft area, and refinished garden tub in the master.
The interior opts for the coffee-dark hardwoods against arctic walls and cabinetry approach. This includes great expanses of subway tile in the chef’s kitchen, which is punctuated with marble countertops and mildly industrial finishes and bookended by a sunny breakfast porch and wet bar. Which is nice.
The WalkScore clocks in at a not-bad 76 that might smack as underwhelming for the area.
Regardless, maybe location, location, location will trump shortcomings here.
