Promotional materials for this renovated Capitol View two-story manage to namedrop two breweries, a restaurant, and, of course, the Atlanta Beltline a few blocks away.

Monday Night Garage, Wild Heaven’s new outpost, and eats at places like Boxcar in West End are less than a mile from this Beechwood Avenue front porch recently made much trendier, as the PalmerHouse Properties listing points out.

The Southwest Atlanta remodel from 2004 stands on the flipside of the Beltline’s Westside Trail from Adair Park, asking $379,000 as of this week.

Few aspects of the property smack as being 15 years old now, and the overall approach leans hard into 2019’s hottest interior designs (shiplap, sliding doors, an unexpected swing) with spirited results.

The MCM-inspired front door and a shelf made of a natural wood plank off the entry. Floors on this level are described as gray-washed hardwoods.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom floorplan is open, but the 1,700-square-foot layout across two stories means some rooms (like the main living one) might be tighter than some buyers are looking for.

Highlights include a kitchen island that’s said to seat six people and a fresh deck with two levels, which joins the front porch as a viable outdoor hang.

The property joins a handful of thoughtfully updated houses in surrounding blocks available in the mid to high-$300,000s, with one totally remade outlier asking significantly more.

Records indicate it last traded in May 2018, prior to renovations, for $139,000.

The WalkScore thuds at “Car-Dependent” 36, but the address is certified “Bikeable” with a Bike Score of 58.

All of that stands to rise—along with Beltline accessibility from the south—when the initial stretch of the Southside Trail comes to fruition. It’s expected to break ground this year.
