New, 24 comments

At these 1990s offerings, find Beltline, shopping, great schools all within walking distance

In this Curbed Comparison, we’re looking at intown listings that provide a reasonable entry for those wanting to move inside the perimeter—in very choice locations.

As one reader noted, “While not workforce housing, these offer people options in neighborhoods that typically require much higher prices.”

So true.

Other similarities he spotted include both properties’ proximity to the Beltline, shopping and dining, as well as the homes’ locations in great elementary school zones.

And, although both 1990s-era dwellings could use some updates, buyers won’t necessarily have to postpone move-in day to accommodate renovations. Let’s have a look.

Highlights of this 1992 home include a large front porch complete with green pergola, hardwoods throughout, an expansive master suite on the second floor, and a two-car garage. Plus, “location and walkability are off the charts!” the listing enthuses.


^ 817 Edgewood Ave. N.E.

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 4

Square footage: 1,550

Price: $539,900

Neighborhood: Inman Park

Claiming to be “one of Inman Park’s best kept secrets,” this 1993 Victorian boasts a wide, wraparound front porch, refinished pine floors, fresh interior paint, new carpet, renovated kitchen, two-car garage, and private Inman Park Pool membership. The catch? This home is actually a townhouse, not the entire house.
