Great location and quality craftsmanship coalesce in this classic, yet imperfect The Prado residence

For the first time in 72 years, this circa-1920 Ansley Park home near Winn Park is making its debut on the market.

Featuring the original hardwood floors, high ceilings, detailed molding, and a plethora of windows, the 2,570-square-foot house’s flat-faced facade is unlike most of its neighbors (or any old home in Atlanta, for that matter).

It’s unclear if those original hardwood floors run throughout the house, though, given that some of the bedrooms have carpet.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the home also includes a variety of built-ins, arched doorways, and two fireplaces, plus what appears to be a mock fireplace.

Although there are some obvious updates—the kitchen being the prime example—it’s not surprising the listing states this property provides the “perfect opportunity to renovate, add on, or move right in.” (So it’s probably a fixer-upper, priced well north of a million bucks).

The back deck is a nice spot for relaxing outdoors, but the large, private, flat backyard touted in the listing, at this price point, is in dire need of some attention.

Although there is off-street parking thanks to the driveway, for the asking price of $1,295,000, a detached garage would have been a nice asset.

But with a location within walking distance of Piedmont Park, MARTA, shopping and dining, perhaps a car isn’t a necessity.
