This installment of Curbed Comparisons takes a wide-ranging look at what $400,000—give or take $25,000— can buy in Atlanta’s various intown communities.
From cottages and condos to renovated ranches and updated shotgun houses, there’s a lot to choose from in and around the city. In this price range, buyers will find a lot of similarities, too, like how all but one of these listings has four bedrooms and similar lot sizes. They’re convenient to many of the city’s top shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations, although some locations are more prized than others.
A recent renovation added many modern features to this 1957 ranch in Chamblee, including granite countertops, contemporary light fixtures, and marble-topped bath vanities. The home also features fresh paint inside and out, although that blue on the front may not sit well with everyone. The large deck overlooking the fenced backyard provides a good spot for outdoor entertaining. The current asking price is $418,000.
Located in East Lake, this 1937 Tudor cottage counts original hardwood floors, a recently renovated kitchen, and updated bathrooms. For buyers who enjoy outdoor spaces, this home delivers with a large screened-in porch and expansive deck and fenced-in backyard. The property also is just around the corner from the East Lake Country Club and East Lake YMCA. The current asking price is $415,000.
Found on “the best street in Westview,” this 1940 brick house has been thoroughly renovated from top to bottom. The four-bedroom, four-bedroom abode now features a modern kitchen, “gleaming” hardwood floors, and an entirely new second floor. As a result of the lot layout, though, potential buyers may find themselves closer to their neighbors than they’d prefer. The current asking price is $405,000.
This “highly desirable front-facing” condominium in Ansley Park comes with two bedrooms and two bathrooms (among 1,170 square feet) in a building within walking distance of MARTA, Piedmont Park, and plenty of shopping and nightlife. Built in 1989, the unit has been recently renovated, with an updated kitchen, new bedroom carpet, and new HVAC system. Also comes with two parking spaces, one inside and one out. The current asking price is $389,000, the second cheapest on the list.
This spacious 2007 Craftsman-style home “loaded with charm” in East Point’s Egan Park includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,500 square feet. The listing really plays up the home’s size, pointing out the 10-foot ceilings, the kitchen’s “tons of prep space,” the two “BIG” closets in the master bedroom, and “lots of storage.” The detached garage also offers an opportunity for even more space, given the upstairs can be finished as an office or guest house. The current asking price is $375,000.
