For $700K, score Old Fourth Ward bungalow with ‘million-dollar view’

Sitting opposite Central Park, this circa-1920 home contains “all the extra little details” anyone could want

On the heels of an extensive renovation, it’s clear this three-bedroom, three-bathroom offering in the Old Fourth Ward cleans up well.

Visitors realize the welcoming front porch gives way to a large entrance before opening up into the living room and then the kitchen.

Along the way, find “extra little details” that make this house “your own unique masterpiece,” as the listing puts it: the wood inlay in the kitchen ceiling, the industrial shelving, the blue walls in a bathroom, and the dual shower in the master bath.

It’s too bad, some would argue, they also include a barn door on that master bathroom.

Thanks to the many windows and white color palette that take full advantage of the abundant natural light, the 2,156-square-foot house actually feels as spacious as it is, despite the appearance that some of the rooms are quite narrow.

The renovation also included the entire yard, a nice touch, especially with the fenced-in backyard that includes a concrete pad accessed by an alley. This is a marked improvement over street parking.

The listing also boasts of a “spectacular million-dollar view” of Atlanta’s skyline across the expanse of Central Park, which is actually off to the left of the house.

Directly across the street, though, is a busy parking lot adjacent to The Kindezi School.

In addition, the listing states future homebuyers could walk or bike everywhere; that might be true, but given that the property is west of Boulevard, it’s actually on the opposite side of the neighborhood than most O4W attractions: Ponce City Market, the Beltline, that awesome park.

At the same time, the home’s location probably contributes to its non-$800K price, although, at $699,900, it’s not chump change, either.
