Sweet Auburn property counts rooftop views and 95 WalkScore

Atlanta loft enthusiasts searching for historic appeal, vintage feel, and three times as many stories as bedrooms could be in luck.

This condo, described as “beautiful” with its “stunning exposed brick” and 22-foot ceilings, has listed for $300,000 at the Brushworks Lofts building, a circa-1905 Sweet Auburn structure in the shadow of downtown Atlanta.

Gallman Development Group converted the building to condos in 2003. It consists of 22 lofts with either one or two bedrooms, according to Central Atlanta Progress.

Now, the Hilliard Street location boasts a 95 “Walker’s Paradise” WalkScore, boosted by walkability to MARTA, the streetcar, parks, and a wealth of Edgewood Avenue eat and drink options.

With its 2,772 square feet (and hardly outrageous $225 monthly HOA fees) across three levels, the deal could seem surprisingly strong, despite the drawbacks of having one bedroom and one bathroom.

And it’s not without idiosyncrasies. The ground-level bedroom could strike some Atlanta loft hunters as a tad dungeon-like, although others might call that cozy.

A loft space on the uppermost level could function as a second bedroom, office, or den, per the listing.

The communal rooftop hangout emits a sort of urban-beach vibe, with the stacks of downtown to the west, and Old Fourth Ward attractions including the Beltline in the opposite direction.

The listing also notes the proximity of Georgia State University and, uh, Georgia Tech, while stressing that interested parties could “purchase in time for the Super Bowl.”
