This renovated 1920s residence in Westview is discrediting the argument that larger, attractive ITP Atlanta houses for less than $400,000 have gone the way of the dodo.

Find this three-bedroom option on Gordon Street, described as one of Westview’s most sought-after lanes, with no shortage of adoringly cared for older homes.

The location—less than two blocks from the Beltline’s Westside Trail, between two MARTA lines and walkable to local shops—brings a 67 WalkScore, which isn’t shabby for a lower-density area with an emphasis on porches and yards.

Off-street parking (barely pictured) comes via a concrete, free-floating pad near the front porch that might strike some buyers as a bit underwhelming.

Counterbalancing that, however, is an abundance of traditional charm that starts with the original wood doors and carries throughout with (original) hardwood floors and up to a clawfoot tub (again, original) in the commendable master suite.

Coffered ceilings, flourishes of exposed brick, and Craftsman-style trim complement the vintage aesthetic. All three upstairs bedrooms come replete with fireplaces, a nice touch.

Less alluring is the backyard, which is basically a rectangular blank slate beyond the functional, elevated deck.

Pertinent facts: 2,088 square feet for $349,000, listed three days ago.

Westview homes that’ve achieved the mid-$300,000 range in recent months have been all over the place, in terms of size and style, but a solid comp would be this redone bungalow, which ultimately fetched $350,000 on the nose earlier this month, per records.

Given that precedent, and combined with the hot summer selling season, logic says a bidding frenzy could be within the realm of possibility.
