Recent listings in West End would suggest the neighborhood is becoming a hotbed of new-construction houses that are throwbacks in terms of style and every-square-foot-counts size.
The trend continues with two new-build bungalows on Atwood Street, a couple of blocks south of Interstate 20 and east of the Beltline’s Westside Trail.
The first to reach the open-market finish line is 502 Atwood (the green option, at right), which delivers a vintage look for its three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,375 square feet.
Both are projects by Atlanta-based Gateway Construction Company, a general contractor specializing in residential construction intown and commercial projects around the Southeast.
The company’s leaders are “two native Atlantan blood brothers building, selling, and uplifting the West End,” noted Kurt Williams, the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices listing agent, in an email to Curbed Atlanta.
Beyond seller-paid closings costs—an arrangement that apparently still exists in Atlanta—perks include 10-foot ceilings like yesteryear bungalows, smart home technology, an ample front porch with a ceiling fan, and no shortage of off-street parking.
Compromises could come with the not-massive main living space—a casualty of the relatively small footprint—and general lack of privacy between this property and its sibling.
The price: $399,900.
