Modest abode is the neighborhood’s latest to seek north of $400K

Here’s a rare sight for Atlanta these days: a new listing, built from the ground up with a modest three bedrooms, that could pass—at first blush, at least—as a relic of the 1920s.

While its finishing touches are still being applied (see the dust-filled listing photos), the house is clearly a contrast to the mega traditionals and more daring moderns that’ve sprouted across town at breakneck pace in recent years.

The emphasis here is on the porch, the vintage-looking fireplace, and unostentatious proportions, which isn’t to imply the price is similarly small.

Find it on Beecher Street, a couple of blocks from both the West End MARTA Station and Beltline-fronting Lee+White development.

A product of Brightstone Builders, the bungalow is flaunting 10-foot ceilings, a farmhouse sink (with nearby pot-filler), shiplap wainscoting, and “plush carpet” for secondary bedrooms.

It listed today for $449,000. Square footage has yet to be specified.

Half a dozen West End houses have traded for more than $400,000 this year, and several others priced in that ballpark are under contract.

It’ll be interesting to see if buyers are willing to fork over that premium for the luxury of fitting right in.

The lot in question, as seen in November.
