Flat in 1919 landmark exemplifies clean but cozy simplicity

Unlike its former, snow-ravaged counterpart around the corner, this Ansley Park building with ties to Daughters of the American Revolution continues to stand strong, with its centennial anniversay on tap next year.

Atlantans would probably be surprised to know the structure houses not a museum or family of pecan magnates but condos, as evidenced by an open-concept flat that just hit the market.

At the cusp of Piedmont Park and Atlanta Botanical Garden, and around the bend from Winn and Yonah parks, the 15th Street residence comes with covered parking, which some condos in the area lack, and an extra, deeded storage room.

Inside, the end-unit is wide-open and rather roomy (1090 square feet) for the price (asking $325,000), considering the location and what newer Midtown condos are fetching closer to Peachtree Street.

Per listings, the HOA fee is a manageable $318—per year.

The kitchen might smack a little 2008, in terms of aesthetics, but it certainly appears well-maintained and functional.

There’s an elevated, concrete patio for taking in the leafy surroundings, and the understated living area and bedroom appear generally ... well, nice.

But therein might lie the rub: The flat offers just a single bedroom and bathroom. That limits the buyer pool—and the possibility of having overnight guests too cool for pull-out beds or sleeping bags.

On the other hand, perks include high ceilings, fresh paint, and so much natural light it’s almost overkill. Almost.
