In this new installment of Curbed Comparisons, we’re examining two closely matched in-town townhouses situated within a few streets of one another.
Both are recent properties, with one brand new to the area, which means they both contain plenty of up-to-date features and decor. That translates into clean, contemporary lines, modern light fixtures, and technological amenities.
In addition, each property contains three bedrooms and four bathrooms, although the older property is a slight 100 square feet smaller than the newer structure.
In fact, given that the older property is a wee bit smaller than its newer counterpart, it begs the question of why it has an asking price that’s $65,000 higher than that of the new townhouse.
Let’s have a closer look.
Square footage: 2,010
Neighborhood: Old Fourth Ward
One of 12 Rankin T’homes townhomes in the Old Fourth Ward, this 2018 property is outfitted with LED lighting, a chef’s kitchen with quartz countertops, and master suite complete with Juliette balcony.
The four-story structure includes a two-car garage and a rooftop terrace with views of the Atlanta skyline peeking over the surrounding buildings. On the main floor, there’s even a fenced-in yard that provides more outdoor living space.
Square footage: 1,908
Built in 2015, this townhouse comes with Bosch kitchen appliances, custom California Closets, and hardwoods throughout. However, it could do with a few more windows to light up the place.
This four-story townhouse also comes with a rooftop terrace, private, fenced-in yard, and two-car garage. Plus, according to the listing, it just received a $25,000 price reduction, making it a “prime opportunity to be in one of in-town’s very best locations.”
