Buyers who fancy Victorian styling without old-home stresses and master suites with attached parlors just might hit a jackpot here in Inman Park.
And a jackpot is what they might need to afford the mortgage note, as the asking price is aiming—like recent listings elsewhere in Atlanta—for the highest number a single-family home has achieved in the neighborhood.
Priced at $1.89 million, this four-bedroom from 2001 looks to break the $1.69-million high-water mark set by a five-bedroom traditional from the same era last July. This corner-lot property, however, is 1,200 square feet larger.
Most Atlantans who’ve strolled the Freedom Park PATH Trail have probably noticed the brick wraparound porch here—both sides face greenspaces, with the skyline visible beyond—beneath the Victorian-style turret.
This beyond-ample front porch could very well be the highlight. Or maybe the location is. It’s a minutes-long walk from here to the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, Little Five Points, and commercial nodes of Inman Park and Poncey-Highland, contributing to the sterling 87 WalkScore.
Moving inside, find an immense 5,800 square feet across three levels, much of it fashioned in a cozy, traditional style with elements (black granite, bathroom tile) that hint at early-aughts origins.
Perks include the tucked-away backyard (with a patio and elevated deck, if the front porch won’t suffice on nice days), and the finished terrace level, which lends the property another living room and kitchen.
Overall, it’s described as an “entertainer’s dream” and rare opportunity.
Records indicate the home last sold in the summer of 2014 for substantially less—$980,000. But it has received costly upgrades (new hardwood floors on main and upper levels, fresh paint everywhere) as the neighborhood’s graduated from sizzling to volcanic.
Still, could the asking price be a tall order?
