This open-concept condo from the 1920s also counts skyline views, but buyers have balked thus far

This Virginia-Highland building offers what might be the closest Beltline proximity in all of Atlanta. It’d be tough to live much closer to the Eastside Trail, in fact, without getting sideswiped by e-scooters.

Given the trail’s status as a sort of landlocked beachfront property, cool multifamily options that overlook it become available with surprising regularity. But they don’t always sell overnight.

Case in point is this three-level offering at Factory Lofts, a 1925 building converted to residences in the 1990s that offers a small community of condos and townhomes. From the patios of some units, you could high-five Eastside Trail joggers.

This loft is set back a bit from the trail, with its outdoor space on the roof, allowing for skyline views from downtown to Midtown, especially in winter.

Initially posted for $720,000 in early November, the property was discounted this week to $699,000, as listed with Dorsey Alston Realtors.

Is the chilly selling season the culprit? The general lack of doors in the lofty space? Or something else?

The industrial aesthetic, illuminated by large windows and a skylight, is apparent in the main living space on the second floor.

Spanning 1,813 square feet, the loft brings to market two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, with updates that didn’t besmirch the historical charm, per the listing.

Like concrete floors and exposed ducts, high ceilings are in abundance. So many stairs could be a sticking point with the empty-nester demographic, but they do allow for good separation of space, though it’s hardly soundproof.

The monthly HOA is listed at $424, which could seem substantial for a property without a pool or much else in the way of communal space.

Bonus points, though, for a separate storage unit included with the home, the two gated parking spaces (a rarity for the building, per the listing), and the unsurprisingly stellar 91 WalkScore, denoting this location—appropriately—a “Walker’s Paradise.”
