Tucked between the green expanses of Piedmont Park and Midtown’s high-rises, the splendid streets of Ansley Park count more than a dozen unclaimed properties at the moment priced higher than $1 million (and several north of $2 million), and this circa-1930 traditional cottage could be the most unassuming of them all.
Records indicate the home last sold in 2012 for $975,000, which gives an idea where this tony district has been trending since the city’s sluggish recessionary days.
It’s back this week, asking $1,649,000 and dangling perks that include two-block proximity to the aforementioned park and upstairs views of the Midtown skyline.
Judging by street presence, and the relatively tight lot and front porch, it’s surprising the home manages just shy of 3,500 square feet, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, all of them refined.
This block of Ansley Park is described in the listing as “intimate,” although demanding buyers with this kind of dough could see “cramped.”
Inside, very few spaces appear underutilized or overdone, and a solid mix of historic character (moldings, window styles) and modern conveniences (well-appointed kitchen, a few recessed ceiling speakers) was achieved.
While not large, the eye-pleasing backyard has lush landscaping, a functional slate patio, and what might be the most adorable two-car garage around.
Like the rest of the property, it isn’t flashy, for the money, which isn’t always a downside.
