It’s fitting that this 1920s remodeling project on Historic West End’s Peeples Street offers a throwback lifestyle, by Atlanta standards, where one could visit the pharmacy, grocery, parks, restaurants, and even the bank without driving.

But here, the perks go beyond the “Walker’s Paradise” WalkScore rating of 89.

With an opened-up front porch and eye-popping yellow door, the renovated bungalow occupies a historic street lined with beautified residences in various styles, from fanciful cottages to American Four Square and plenty of Victorian, many of them fronted by charming brick sidewalks and ornate fencing.

Inside, it checks many boxes in the trendy category, from the brassy fixtures and designer floor tiling in bathrooms to the classic subway tile. The farmhouse kitchen sink is described as to-die-for. Okay, sure.

Describing all three bedrooms as “large” could be a stretch, but the master (with a barn door befitting the style and incorporated fireplace) probably does qualify as “supersized.”

A simple, conveniently spacious backyard deck overlooks a fenced, flat area with fresh sod. Off-street parking comes via a driveway.

Other pertinent numbers: 2,058 square feet, with two and a half bathrooms, for an asking price of $375,000.

In recent months, West End homes that are both larger and smaller have sold for more.

But the neighborhood record of $585,000 now belongs to a gorgeous late-1800s traditional, also on Peeples Street, records indicate.
