For this installment of Curbed Comparisons, we examine what $750,000—give or take $5,000—will purchase around Atlanta at the moment.
At this price point, potential buyers will need to focus their search north and east of downtown, in such sought-after neighborhoods as Virginia-Highland, Candler Park, and Buckhead.
Most options offer large, spacious interiors, although there are some exceptions. Overall, though, most listings would be ideal for couples and families looking for room to breathe—as Atlanta properties should be at this price.
On Oakdale Road in Candler Park, this 1900 bungalow is much larger than it looks. That screened front porch leads to five bedrooms and three bathrooms in 3,200 square feet that include a renovated master suite on the second floor. Downstairs in the basement, two bedrooms and one bathroom make for a sweet in-law suite or rental. Recently listed by Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta, the current asking price is $750,000 even.
Found in the Landen Pine townhome community in Buckhead, this 2017 three-story unit includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,672 square feet. Interior design details range from hardwood floors and modern finishes to subway tile and a tray ceiling in the master bedroom. Per the listing, the HOA fees are $275 per month and cover such amenities as a swimming pool and green space. Listed by Harry Norman Realtors–Atlanta Perimeter, the asking price is also $750,000.
Located on Highland View in Virginia Highland, this 1,749-square-foot bungalow features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. While it retains some of its original 1930 charm, it also boasts many modern amenities. Think updated kitchen with beer tap and wine refrigerator plus a renovated master bathroom with split double vanities. A Knock Homes listing, the current ask is $745,000.
With two bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,642 square feet, this renovated condo at Above the Four Seasons includes such updates as new travertine floors and updated bathrooms throughout. Outside, a covered balcony provides scenic views of Midtown and points north. The listing touts the condo as a “best value,” yet it’s been listed for more than 100 days. It also entails rather steep monthly HOA fees of $1,187. After a $50,000 price cut in November, the listing with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty now sits at $749,000.
Occupying a corner lot on Wimbledon Road in Piedmont Heights, this three-bedroom, four-bathroom home encompasses 2,920 square feet—the second largest of this bunch. The 1981 property is ideal for entertaining thanks to the expansive kitchen and the large deck off the living room. It also is ripe with “many opportunities,” such as turning the lower level into a rental and putting in a swimming pool or carriage house in the side lawn. A new listing with PalmerHouse Properties-Atlanta, the current asking price is $750,000.
