Being the least expensive house on the market in Inman Park at the moment implies that some concessions will have to be made on the part of buyers, but in this case, sacrificing architectural character is not among them.
This circa-1920 cottage on Degress Avenue was renovated top-to-bottom by Midtown-based Neely Design architecture firm, which has a knack for making antiquity look fresh.
It’s a quiet street on the eastern side of Inman Park, between the neighborhood’s MARTA station and Wrecking Bar Brewpub, with a tip-top 82 WalkScore. Which is cause for the listing to declare: “You can’t beat this location.”
Fans of classic, quintessential old Atlanta home styles could be charmed by the facade and many interior aspects, ranging from the heart-pine floors and original hardware to the handsome fireplaces and custom trim.
The house is bookended by a nice little front lawn with a built-in sprinkler system and a fenced bay yard around back with courtyard seating.
As the exterior implies, the interior is high-ceilinged but hardly cavernous, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms among 1,490 square feet.
A subdivision is rising behind this row of Degress Avenue houses, which dings privacy; and with this particular address, it’s street parking only.
As listed this week with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, the home is priced at $599,900.
