On the exterior, this example of early aughts architecture in Inman Park employs flourishes such as dentils and columns on impressively spacious porches that echo various styles of older neighboring dwellings.
Inside, the aesthetic is considerably different.
Marketed as “the intown home you’ve been waiting for!”, this 5,100-square-foot titan stands an easy stroll from both Little Five Points and Inman Park’s commercial core, neighboring a green space with an offshoot of the Freedom Park PATH Trail, a Beltline connection.
Combine that with a MARTA transit station a few blocks away, and you have a stupendous and very urban 89 WalkScore—with a backyard large enough to be mistaken for a public park in itself.
The location might have universal appeal, but the Atlanta homebuyer who covets this much space—and can handle the asking price—is rarer. The property listed in recent days at $1.7 million, via Keller Williams Realty.
Built in 2002, the one-owner Austin Avenue residence counts five bedrooms and a large finished lower level, plus cathedral ceilings and a few skylights that serve to open spaces. That’s not to suggest anything about the place is cramped.
Beyond a sprawling wraparound porch, the interior is surprisingly contemporary in main living areas and beyond, with bamboo flooring, sweeping track lighting, vessel sinks, and a partially stainless-steel island in the chef’s kitchen.
Unique features include heated floors in the master bathroom, the basement movie room, and a separated one-bedroom apartment that’s been used as a rental.
A private courtyard leads back to that gargantuan blank slate of a backyard, which counts alley access.
Current finishes might not be every buyer’s cup of tea, but collectively it succeeds in wowing, as Inman Park’s most expensive property at the moment—by a long shot—should.
