This refreshed 1920s bungalow in what’s described as “upper Grant Park” could appeal to Atlantans looking for coziness and walkability over sheer interior space.

It’s a block south of Memorial Drive, between Oakland Cemetery and the newest Grindhouse Killer Burgers location, surrounded by home architecture (and lot sizes) that echoes Cabbagetown next door.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the former rental has been revived with fresh exterior and interior paint, plus a new kitchen with no shortage of granite and stainless—and a five-burner range with hood.

Square footage is listed with various online sources as 1,081.

The asking price, as posted last week with Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage, is $425,000. The property is called “beautifully appointed,” with an overall status as “exceptional turnkey condition.”

Additional perks include the refinished wide-plank pine flooring throughout, the new light fixtures, and a washer and dryer (hopefully newish, at least) that come with.

Beyond the cozy porch, it’s a street-parking-only situation on a relatively tight, one-way lane. The better news: The address’ dynamite 87 WalkScore could certainly help support a car-free existence.
