Location is the key selling point for a two-bedroom with fresh updates from 1987

Tucked off Freedom Parkway near The Carter Center, this renovated townhouse falls squarely into the category of properties not often seen in Atlanta.

It’s positioned for buyers who covet location over sheer living space—and who don’t mind stucco-clad, postmodernism with a series of glass blocks here and there. Property records indicate the 1987 house hasn’t traded in 20 years.

Visitors are met with lush gardens and a glass-heavy facade like few others in Inman Park. This belies an interior with just-finished updates that include the (natural wood?) flooring, fireplace surround, NEST thermostat, home security system, and even the ceiling fans.

It’s a simple, unfussy layout with a half bathroom joining the kitchen and living area downstairs, topped by two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, providing essentially a larger condo’s worth of square footage (1,422) across two levels.

Unless listing photos fail to show a dining area, the al fresco eating option afforded by the back deck could be a necessity for anyone who takes meals sitting down.

In any case, the deck is surrounded by pleasant, leafy lattice befitting the era, and it serves as a gateway to what’s described as a “secret garden,” complete with a soothing, massive fountain.

Perhaps semidetached home-seekers would want more squares for the $459,900 asking price, but alphabet-soup walkability like this (hello, L5P, PCM, KSM, and MARTA) doesn’t come cheap anymore.
