Built in 1986, this two-story flat isn’t the sort of place typically for sale in Virginia-Highland.

Described as a “unicorn” property by the listing agent, this two-story condominium housed in a brick building in Virgina-Highland is quite the anomaly for the neighborhood.

Built in 1986, the 1,206-square-foot home serves up two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with built-in shelves and a gas fireplace in the living room.

The listing states the kitchen has been updated with Corian countertops, stainless appliances, and maple cabinetry; it’s not clear, though, when that update was executed given these features aren’t the current trend.

The balcony overlooking the interior courtyard is also an interesting contradiction. Squeezed in between two walls, it first comes across as private and cozy, but further inspection makes it seem a bit cramped.

One definite bonus for the condo is the one-car garage, something not common for the surrounding community. Additional parking is available behind the building, and the home also comes with a storage unit. Magical!

The building stands an easy walk away from Virginia-Highland’s shops and restaurants, and the stroll to Piedmont Park and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail is manageable, especially for outdoor enthusiasts.

With the asking price of $315,000 on target for this desirable area, the condo may experience a short life on the market.

After all, unicorns are rarely available.
