In this installment of Curbed Comparison, we’re taking a look at two in-town bungalows seeping in traditional charm and quaint curb appeal.
Both circa-1920s structures have been updated and now sport refinished hardwoods, top-notch kitchens, and modern bathrooms.
However, features such as beautiful molding, pocket doors, and even a clawfoot tub add plenty of nostalgic touches appropriate to the homes’ original construction period.
Each listing also brags on the homes’ locations, with one in “the heart of walkable Peachtree Hills” and the second in “highly coveted Candler Park.”
Let’s dig into the details.
^2399 Glenwood Drive N.E.
Square footage: 1,754
Neighborhood: Peachtree Hills
Sitting on a corner lot, this “impeccably maintained” home contains many high-quality design features, including refinished hardwoods, beautiful molding, and hand-crafted inset cabinetry.
Behind the house, a swim spa complements the small deck that provides a cozy, quiet spot for relaxing or outdoor entertaining.
Surrounding the house is a “garden-style yard” with hydrangeas, roses, and Japanese maples that not only add privacy but also enhance the beauty of the home.
^279 Elmira Place N.E.
Square footage: 2,127
Neighborhood: Candler Park
“Totally updated,” this bungalow features plenty of design elements that coalesce into quite the pretty picture. These include gleaming hardwoods, a beamed ceiling, custom wainscoting, and a subway tile backsplash.
Although the yard could use some clean up and shaping, the welcoming front porch is ideal for enjoying the outdoors while catching up with neighbors.
But wait! There’s more! Score an Inman Park pool permit for $2,500 with purchase!
