From its front-yard myrtles, generous porch, and throwback paint schemes, this 1924 bungalow in the verdant heart of Grant Park aims for quintessential Atlanta style.

The Ormewood Avenue property is separated from the neighborhood’s eponymous green space by just one other lot (and Boulevard) to the west. Probably within earshot of roaring lions.

With a generally deep footprint and its attic converted to livable space, the home brings a surprisingly roomy 2,802 square feet, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It listed in recent days for $639,900 with Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta.

As older Grant Park offerings in the mid-$600,000s go, it doesn’t have much competition at the moment, save this eccentric, century-old traditional and a couple of others.

It’s marketed as both “gorgeous” and “perfect for entertaining,” although parking for any sizable shindig could be a squeeze. (The property has tight driveway parking for two.)

But the listing isn’t lacking charm overall, from the old hardwood floors to the fresh paint and that darling backyard shed.
