Once the domain of modest brick cottages and a smattering of empty lots, the easternmost stretches of Old Fourth Ward’s East Avenue NE have transformed over the past decade into a strategically located haven for large townhouses and bolder contemporary new-builds.
Billed, per usual, as a “modern masterpiece,” this corner-lot duplex scheduled to finish next month is the latest example of East Avenue changes.
With its wraparound balconies and rooftop decks that promise skyline views, the duplex first emerged on the market in 2017, located just south of Historic Fourth Ward Park.
Initial completion projections were off, but Unit B is back this week, with a $50,000 price hike versus 2017. The new ask: $900,000.
With 2,005 square feet, three bedrooms, and two and a half bathroom, it doesn’t qualify as gargantuan by Atlanta standards.
But the location—basically overlooking a pedestrian bridge that leads to the splendors of Inman Park—could indeed be one of O4W’s most walkable, as the listing claims.
The other half, unit A, isn’t currently listed.
Positives include a wraparound porch (one of three outdoor spaces) connected to the master bedroom, plus custom tiling and kitchens described as gourmet. The garages, meanwhile, could smack as tight.
O4W townhouses have been moving for north of $800,000 since at least late 2016. In the past year, another half-dozen have closed above that threshold, with one duplex unit flirting with the $1-million mark.
Times have changed, indeed.
