In the past few years, East Atlanta has emerged as a hub of midcentury ranch homes reimagined as low-slung, modernized dwellings.
The trend continues in the neighborhood’s southeastern reaches this week with a reinvented four-bedroom from 1964, which now boasts curb appeal (via large windows, a stylish door, and uniform paint scheme) more typical of midcentury cool.
For bar-crawlers of the ATL, there’s a downside: The listing is loaded with photos of EAV attractions such as Argosy and Midway Pub (and bucolic Brownwood Park), but it’s nearly two miles from the home’s front door to the village. Thus, the “car-dependent” 29 WalkScore.
But the location, which is convenient to Interstate 20, probably helps to keep the price significantly below a half-million bucks ($449,900) for square footage that isn’t exactly slight (2,475).
That volume is surely boosted by the finished basement—a somewhat rare intown perk at this price point. Down there, find a bedroom (one of four) and full bathroom (one of three “luxurious” loos, per the listing).
Elsewhere, the open floorplan takes few chances but probably checks a lot of boxes for most buyers seeking quartz, stainless steel, subway tiles, and shiny hardwoods.
Like the two-vehicle carport, the spacious and new back deck is a plus, especially in that it overlooks woods and a creek.
Maybe, for some, such serenity is preferable to raucous EAV nightlife. Especially if interstate noise isn’t too intrusive around here.
