Neighborhood’s cheapest (inhabitable) house at the moment is a modernized but unmolested classic

Desirable dwellings of Atlanta need not always be complicated or ostentatious.

Making that case this week is a respectfully modified 1928 bungalow in Virginia-Highland that appears to be the neighborhood’s cheapest non-pending, non-horrifying listing at the moment.

Find it between North Highland Avenue and Briarcliff Road, a few blocks east of the Va-Hi commercial strip, somehow with a confounding womp-womp WalkScore of just 66.

Some might quibble with an overabundance of walls—resulting in a somewhat squeezed living room in particular—but overall the property logs nearly 2,000 square feet for a price Atlanta buyers trading up (or downsizing) for location might find doable: $639,900

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home is nestled on what the listing describes as a quiet street in a neighborhood rated high for walkability, general friendliness, historic charm, and the potential for fun.

Updates overall are fairly simple and stylistically appropriate, from the office-porch’s haint-blue ceiling to the butcher block countertops in a kitchen that’s not exactly oversized.

The sprawling back deck and accompanying yard, however, are decidedly non-minimal in proportion.

Not pictured, but worth keeping in mind, is a finished downstairs area where an in-law suite could be built, the listing suggests.
