In Castleberry Hill, spunky jewel-box loft calls for an even $300K

What Gordon Lofts corner unit lacks in privacy, it compensates with quirky personality and postindustrial charm

Here in Castleberry Hill, in the shadow of southernmost downtown, this cut-and-dried, end-unit loft is angling for buyers who covet personality and inimitable soul over annoyances like walls.

Dubbed a light-filled jewel box of a flat, the one-bedroom (a generous description), one-bathroom offering is found at The Gordon Lofts, a beautifully converted circa-1900 building where post-and-beams and 11-foot ceilings reign supreme across three stories.

Beyond a location that includes walkability to sports coliseums, Castleberry dining, MARTA trains (two blocks), at least two Waffle Houses, and Magic City, the building offers a rooftop hang and secured parking as perks.

With just shy of 1,300 square feet, the loft listed a few days ago at an even $300,000, offering a simplified layout and the sort of vibe where suspended, vintage-style speakers seem totally appropriate.

Less clear is where the owner would actually slumber, although logic says the curtains beside the bookshelf lead to (not pictured) sleeping quarters. The pad certainly doesn’t lack for windows or dining space, but nobody would call the kitchen cutting-edge, as is.

The listing touts the flat as an “excellent investment opportunity,” which are words not muttered in Atlanta as often as they used to be.

But given the surge of nearby investment activity—to include Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the proposed Gulch overhaul by CIM, the Hard Rock hotel piece, and Newport’s seismic ambitions for south downtown—that might not be an unwise assessment.
