Interior designer’s personal residence lends historic feel to 2002 origins

Behind a white-picket fence and fanciful, fitting wrought-iron gate, this 2002 bungalow on Cabbagetown’s Pickett Street has the feel of a much older residence—and the spunk of the neighborhood it calls home.

Clad in a bright blue that previews bold colors within, the four-bedroom, two and a half bathroom dwelling stands a lime’s throw from Agave restaurant and the cafes of Carroll Street.

That location—coupled with park proximity and the Beltline leg that’s blocks away—contributes to the outstanding 87 WalkScore, indicative of a “Very Walkable” status that’s rare for most single-family neighborhoods.

Last sold for $344,000 in the spring of 2014, the property’s current ride on the market began in late August at $695,000, and has trickled downward in the three months since.

It re-listed this week via EXP Realty at $670,000.

Per that listing, the interior designer owner recently updated the home, lending a few surprises beyond lively paint choices.

Property records peg the square footage at 2,395. Living space continues with a back deck above a somewhat rare, spacious parking pad.

It’s C-town’s priciest available house right now, although others of similar style are under contract for more.
