Snag a Buckhead address with this cute starter, but prepare to make sacrifices in doing so

Located in the desirable Buckhead enclave of Peachtree Park, this 1948 bungalow, complete with the proverbial white picket fence, is quite the charmer.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house features 9-foot ceilings and many modern upgrades. Plus, it appears to be quite roomy for 1,602 square feet.

With large front and back yards, there’s plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors, too, especially for couples who like to entertain or families wanting space for the kiddos to play.

However, potential buyers would need to make a few sacrifices if purchasing this dwelling. For instance, the master bedroom provides the only interior access to the deck overlooking the backyard.

Not exactly a path one normally wants friends and family to take when heading outside.

And while the backyard appears to be fairly private, with access to the adjacent Peachtree Park Nature Trail, it also backs up to not one, but four sets of railroad tracks.

Logic says that much train traffic could derail the home’s serene environment.

On the plus side, the annual neighborhood association fees, although not disclosed, do include swimming pool access.

Currently, there are several listings available on this street, all within the range of this home’s asking price of $599,000. So it appears to be priced to move.

In fact, one can’t help but wonder why so many other properties are available on this street “in one of Atlanta’s most popular neighborhoods,” as the listing puts it.

Perhaps it’s coincidence. But inquiring minds definitely want to know.
