1950s ranch packages trendy updates with EAV walkability

About a half-dozen blocks from the East Atlanta Village, in a part of town that’s no stranger to brick midcentury ranches, this renovated three-bedroom dwelling is putting its most 2019 foot forward.

That means shiplap, quartz countertops, and cabinetry that closes with a whisper—and very little that harkens the ranch’s 1958 origins. Beyond the big carport, that is.

Per the listing, the renovation went to the studs, and the result is all new systems, hardwood floors, and designer finishes.

Pertinent numbers: two bathrooms. One snazzy, functional kitchen. And a 29 WalkScore that lands the location squarely at “Car-Dependent.”

The modest dimensions of virtually every room are reflected in the not-huge square footage (1,350), although a full, unfinished daylight basement affords the option for expansion.

It last traded for $180,000 prior to renovations in September, records show.

Now, Avenue Realty has listed it at $449,900.

Little in these rooms speaks to the 1950s origins now.
