This Poncey-Highland offering from the 1930s presents the brick arches and half-timbers of a Tudor from the street, mixed with a smattering of Craftsman details—and several surprises—within.
Positioned off North Avenue, the four-bedroom home occupies a deep lot on Linwood Avenue, which is packed with other stately residences. It backs up to a branch of Freedom Park, with the official Poncey-Highland Playground and a community garden nearby.
Other walkable plusses include Ponce City Market, the Beltline, and Little Five Points, but the house isn’t without shortcomings.
It’s priced $100 shy of a million bucks and counts just two and half bathrooms and driveway parking, though the listing notes there’s ample, level ground for a two-car garage and swimming pool to complement the existing basketball hoop.
Around front, the inviting, lovely front porch leads to an interior highlighted by decorative fireplaces, instances of trey ceilings and throwback window glass, and beautiful old staircases. A hefty Wolf range anchors the remade kitchen.
Unexpected but not inappropriate design flourishes are found with tile and vanity choices in upstairs bathrooms. Ditto for the finished, functional basement.
Listed this week, the property is aiming to join roughly a half-dozen Poncey-Highland houses that have achieved north of $900,000 since 2015.
Records indicate it hasn’t changed hands in 13 years, and thus the well-loved vibe.
