This 1911 craftsman bungalow in Lake Clair certainly looks as solid as it does charming.

In fact, the listing claims it’s where “historic charm meets modern luxury.”

That combination is apparent all around the 2,654-square-foot house, which is filled with custom built-ins, beamed ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout the main floor.

On the outside, though, the property is all charm. Because more is better in Atlanta, there are two front porches where potential buyers can get to know neighbors.

Behind the house, though, is where the shindigs will transpire. Back there, find a two-story deck plus a screened-in porch, all overlooking a very expansive back yard.

The in-law suite in the basement looks quite spacious as well, with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and two bathrooms.

Although there is no garage, the property delivers plenty of off-street parking. Plus, it’s walking-distance close to Lake Claire Park and Lake Claire Pool, where waiting in line to earn a membership will take merely three years.

With a current ask of $749,900, the house is priced competitively for the neighborhood, especially considering you could score two homes for the price of one with that in-law suite in the basement.

Even if the in-laws don’t move in, thanks to the private entrance, this space could be a great Airbnb property or rental for a college student.

Potential buyers would just have to decide how much of this charm they want to share with others, if any of it.
