As with its neighbor West End, the Southwest Atlanta neighborhood of Adair Park has officially become home in 2018—for better or worse—to single-family properties that can fetch more than a half-million dollars.
The latest renovation aiming to breach the half-million mark is a four-bedroom on Bonnie Brae Avenue that melds a classic facade with a drastically nontraditional interior.
It listed this week for $549,000. Records indicate it’s the lone Adair Park property for sale north of even $350,000 right now.
About four blocks from the Beltline’s Westside Trail, the circa-1920 house is described as a charmer that “has it all!” It counts 2,500 square feet, a welcoming porch, large fenced yard, and hip back deck with built-in seating.
Fussiness certainly has no place in the redone interior, with its industrial-style window wall, modern fireplace, and accent walls of blondish wooden slats, which lend a sort of Scandinavian vibe.
The approach leans more traditional in at least two of three marble-clad bathrooms, including the master, where the clawfoot tub has been restored and the closet is pedestrian-friendly.
Elsewhere, the off-street parking is ample but uncovered. And the landscaping might also be described as minimalist.
The house sold in early 2014, prior to renovations, for $22,500, according to city records.
The current pricing logic surely reflects the sale of a larger Adair Park house about two blocks away that fetched a record $530,000 in August.
