Gut renovation of 1957 home produces trendy offering southwest of downtown

A cape cod style house for sale in Westside Atlanta right now.
Dormer enthusiasts wanted.
Simple Showing

Tucked among the big woodsy yards of the Forestwood subdivision, where Cascade meets Beecher Hills, this overhauled 1957 property is beckoning house-hunters to what the listing describes as “ATL’s hottest new neighborhood.”

Listed a week ago at $399,900, the four-bedroom Cape Cod is bookended by a welcoming porch and fresh deck that encompasses 300 square feet, overlooking a forested (but grassless) backdrop.

A recent renovation went back to the studs, and the listing says no expense was spared—from the French doors to the coffered ceilings—on a rebuild described as “stunning.”

Around these 2,660 square feet, find perks like a wide-open floorplan, a wine cooler in the highly social kitchen, casement windows in the master, and handmade stair railings of iron. Also, shiplap.

Here off Beecher Road—a few blocks south of Westview Cemetery, not far from Cascade Nature Preserve—the generous lots lend serenity, but the WalkScore of 7 suggests buyers might want to keep vehicles handy.

The price is testing the limits of the immediate area, where recent sales north of $300,000 have been virtually nonexistent.
