1920s redo incorporates several hot trends, extols Beltline proximity

Chosewood Park’s latest renovation, a gut job that replaced basically everything but the foundation and walls, has resulted in a property that could be described as cheery.

One adjective that might not apply: inexpensive. Relatively speaking.

Flaunting “less than a mile” proximity to the new Beacon commercial hub and what promises to become the Beltline’s Southside Trail in coming years, this redo of a 1923 house has produced four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

It registers high on the trendy-o-meter, with custom sliding doors, a touch of shiplap, and at least one sputnik light.

The latest project by M2REST, makers of this Reynoldstown duplex and numerous renovations around Atlanta, the home might lack covered parking, but the expansive back deck shines. And the yard has the added advantage of actually being fenced this time.

Prior to renovations, the property sold for $157,000 last year, records show. Previous listings pegged the square footage at 1,888, though it may have been recently expanded.

Should the project achieve asking price, it still wouldn’t be the highest home sale in the neighborhood in recent years.

That title belongs to a $531,900 deal that closed just after Thanksgiving on the fittingly named Climax Street.
