Four-bedroom from early 1900s is marketed as a “stunning” and “gorgeous” dream home

Southwest of downtown Atlanta, several Connector exits before the airport, this revived, circa-1910 Victorian with HGTV connections is beckoning buyers to give Capitol View a look.

On the plus side, it’s basically equidistant—a few blocks away—from the Beltline’s Westside Trail (to the north) and Perkerson Park (the south). MARTA’s Oakland City station is walkable to the west.

With four bedrooms and a whopping 3,415 square feet of refreshed living space, the $369,900 price tag is about where neighborhoods like Reynoldstown and Kirkwood stood five or six years ago.

Here on Dill Avenue, visitors are greeted by a cozy porch-swing couch and attractive, Craftsman-style door, and then tall coffered ceilings in the sitting room inside, which flows quickly into the kitchen.

Speaking of, the kitchen was recently remade, per the listing, with fresh cabinetry to the ceilings, countertops, and a farm sink. That room leads back to a breakfast nook and, beyond, a high-perched but somewhat small deck lacking ground access. Below that is a big slab of parking pad.

Proof that this isn’t a fly-by-night flip comes in the “dream” master suite, with its moldings and thoughtful shower design.

Overall, the property is described as “stunning” (twice), “gorgeous,” and “your dream home!!!!” We’ll see if buyers declare “South-Westward Ho!” and agree.
