Since first blipping the radar around these here parts several years ago, Atlanta’s harvest of farmhouse-inspired dwellings has taken on several variations, from modern to straightforward agrarian.

This newly built four-bedroom in East Atlanta falls more into the latter category, emphasizing warmth and functionality over statement-making style.

Find it on Ormewood Avenue, just south of the EAV, maybe a block east of pleasant, shaded Brownwood Park. In terms of size and style, it’s a drastic but relatively gentle departure from the quintessential (if tired) bungalow it replaced.

Counting a hayseed shy of 2,900 square feet, it’s a project by Intown Renewal Developers, whose likeminded dwellings have popped up elsewhere in East Atlanta and across town in Howell Station. It listed this week at $659,900.

With (roughly) three porches and a very deep lot of almost 300 feet, there’s no shortage of outdoor potential here, though the backyard is a blank slate, as is.

Highlights inside include the pretty wide-plank floors, high ceilings, and the kitchen’s Bertazzoni appliances from Italy, flanked by a handy Butler’s pantry with wet bar.

Some buyers could decry the dual dining spaces as redundant, though the front room could ostensibly be reconfigured a media space, office, or library.

Should this much space not suffice, there’s a raw room over the detached, two-car garage prepped for finishing touches. And actual walls and ceilings.

Records indicate this is the only property north of $600,000 for sale in East Atlanta right now—and that if it achieves asking, it would set the neighborhood single-family record by more than $50,000. Correction: It’s been brought to our attention that at least three recent sales have closed in East Atlanta north of $600,000.

The property’s predecessor in 2016. It sold last summer for $200,000.
