Ansley Park ‘cottage,’ called possible teardown for $699K, scores quick offer

New, 50 comments

Quaint home near Piedmont Park features tray ceilings, a colorful interior, and some very dated 1951 décor

White brick ranch house on hill.
Could this Ansley ranch soon be replaced?

Read the listing for this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home, and it almost immediately claims the property is a “darling cottage.”

Sure, if by “cottage” the listing agent meant a 2,026-square-foot brick ranch. By Ansley Park standards, maybe that is cottage-like.

And in any case, it might not be around—at least not in its current configuration—much longer.

Built in 1951, this house comes with vaulted tray ceilings in many rooms, a lot of built-ins, and quite the elegant chandelier in the dining room.

The kitchen looks as if it received some updates in the recent past, as does the master bathroom.

Of course, the second bathroom wasn’t as lucky, given it seems to sport pink tile that almost certainly is original to a 1950s-era house.

The wood paneling in the second bedroom also dates this home, and not in a good way.

The enclosed sunroom on the rear—obviously an addition—is quite large and could be a great entertaining spot. Ditto for the outdoor living spaces found in the backyard. Wonder if the hot tub comes with the purchase?

Overall, it’s not out of reach for the listing to market the property as possible renovation fodder or even a teardown.

Given its location near Piedmont Park and the Beltline, it’s not surprising the home scored an offer after just four days on the market, especially given the asking price of $699,000 is below the usual price range for comparable homes in the community.

It’ll be interesting, though, to see what the future holds for this prime piece of intown property.
