At the moment, the lone house for sale in Oakland City for more than $400,000 is ambitiously seeking way north of that mark.
In fact, it’s asking closer to a half-million bucks than not.
This year, just a handful of Oakland City homes (smaller bungalows) have fetched more than $300,000, topping out at $330,000 for a three-bedroom property of 1,740 square feet, records show.
Then again, with nearly 3,300 square feet, this circa-1920, four-bedroom remodel is almost twice the size of its closed-deal counterparts.
It listed a few days before Halloween at $475,000 and is holding steady.
With a wide, deep, and handsome front porch (bonus points for ceiling fans), it stands a few blocks south of the Beltline’s Westside Trail and burgeoning Lee+White adaptive-reuse district, and maybe six blocks from Oakland City’s MARTA hub in the opposite direction.
Inside, it’s obvious that walls have fallen to fashion a wide-open flow between the main sitting area, dining room, and kitchen, a space highlighted by 10-foot ceilings and a double-sided fireplace of questionable function.
The overall highlight, however, could be the obviously functional, finished basement, with its cozy television area, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and
Another plus: Beyond the new deck (bonus points for exterior stairs), the freshly fenced backyard is absurdly deep, which can mean “versatile” or “maintenance albatross.”
Prior to renovations, the property traded for a mere $53,000 two years ago, according to city tax records.
But is the new package, all things considered, enough to set the Oakland City high mark now?
