South of downtown Atlanta, quaint bungalow asks $319K after renovations

Property seeking a near record high for the community aims to capitalize on nearby Beltline construction

Following a thorough renovation, this circa-1920 brick bungalow in Roseland, a community between Chosewood Park and South Atlanta, harkens back to a simpler time, but with key modern upgrades.

Inside the four-bedroom, three-bathroom abode, the kitchen offers a combination of quartz countertops and slate blue cabinets, plus an unlikely pairing of brushed gold fixtures and stainless steel appliances.

It’s an unusual take on the more popular gray-white palette featured in many recent renovations. Alas, not to worry, though, as the double vanity in the master bathroom fulfills any desire for more gray.

Although the home consists of 1,780 square feet, it appears to be on the small side, especially for a property with four bedrooms. And since the listing doesn’t include photos for bedrooms beyond the master, one can only guess the remaining bedrooms are not especially large.

The rear of the home features a new deck, which, according to the listing, is actually a “private terrace” overlooking the shady backyard.

With no stairs to the (sorely unfenced) backyard and no direct access from the main rooms of the house, it’s an unfortunate situation for anyone wanting private, outdoor entertaining space that doesn’t require a walk around the house.

The listing also claims the property is “literally a hop, skip, and jump [from the] happening Chosewood Park Beltline” segment of the future Southside Trail. It’s actually close to the entrance at D.H. Stanton Park, and, eventually, will be even closer to the spur trail at nearby South Atlanta Park.

Although the listing states this home “won’t last in this fast growing community,” it’s actually been on the market for nearly 80 days. And that’s after a $30,000 price cut that brought the original asking price of $349,000 down to the current $319,000.

Perhaps potential buyers aren’t keen on living across the street from a towing yard. Or maybe they want an asking price more in line with the $200,000s other for-sale homes in the neighborhood have received.

If the property should fetch the current ask—or even close to it—records indicate it would be a near record high for the community.
