Close to many top O4W attractions, this spacious early-aughts offering with curb appeal receives a big price boost

Built in 2000, this six-bedroom, Craftsman-style property sports a faux-old vibe meant to age the house much more than its actual vintage, which isn’t to say it’s not pretty from the street.

With 4,500 square feet, it could indeed be one of the largest homes in this part of “in-town Atlanta and the O4W,” as the listing proclaims.

Of course it contains much of the interior design elements one would expect in a high-end, traditional-style home of the era: custom built-ins, a butler’s pantry, and upgraded trim and wainscoting.

And the expansive front porch gives the house additional charm, providing the perfect place to catch up with neighbors. The back deck doesn’t add much to the home, though, and from the lack of photos showing the back of the house, one wonders if there’s a backyard to speak of.

The property comes with some unexpected features, too, including the home theater, home gym, and the Koi pond by the front porch steps. Surprisingly, there’s even a three-car garage behind the house.

However, the biggest news is that the home is returning to market barely one year after it was last sold, but with a major price increase.

The current asking price of $999,999—after a startling $1 (yes!) price reduction 12 days ago—is quite a jump from the $865,000 it sold for in April 2016.

Perhaps, like a fine wine, this house has aged well and appreciated accordingly.
