This latest renovation continues the upswing of redevelopment—and rising home prices—in South Atlanta

Joining a surge of home renovations in South Atlanta, this 1924 three-bedroom, three-bath property in Chosewood Park sports a cheery façade and welcoming front porch.

Inside, the 1,456-square-foot home features a much more subdued color palette, with grays and whites dominating throughout.

The front door leads into a comfortably spacious living room, which is separated from the dining room by French doors.

In what appears to be an attempt to open up the floorplan, it seems one kitchen wall was removed and replaced with a counter. Elsewhere, the wall of dining room windows does help expand the space a bit.

Upstairs, though, those ceiling angles could present some challenges for making the most of the space.

And while the private, fenced-in backyard with its small deck definitely has potential to be a prime outdoor entertaining space, there’s still work to be done with both the landscaping and maximization of deck space. Perhaps an enlargement is in order?

According to the listing, the home is ideally located, considering it’s “minutes from the Beltline’s future Southeast Trail expansion, Grant Park, and Atlanta Zoo.”

What it doesn’t mention is that the house also is within view of the U.S. Penitentiary.

But perhaps the rare bonus of receiving the living room, dining room, and master bedroom furnishings in the purchase will help justify the asking price of $324,900.
