A case where modern updates allow 1920s attributes to shine through

In the heart of Adair Park, standing between two eponymous neighborhood green spaces, this example of Atlanta’s ever-poplar, three-bedroom bungalow from the 1920s is aiming to capitalize on period charms and burgeoning local amenities.

Counting just shy of 2,250 square feet, the Elbert Street dwelling specializes in large rooms (see: kitchen) made roomier by Atlanta’s original A/C systems, 11-foot ceilings.

Other original aspects not marred by modern upgrades: baseboards, pocket doors, and window trim and moldings.

Off the back of the house, a deck would have been quite useful, although the deep, flat backyard would certainly allow for that addition—and a pool. Or two pools.

The address counts a “Somewhat Walkable” 64 WalkScore, but within relatively easy hoofing distance, as the listing points out, is a Beltline Westside Trail entrance and the multiplying food-and-drink options at the Lee+White warehouse redevelopment.

This week, the property was listed by Engel & Volkers Buckhead Atlanta for $450,000.

It’s the neighborhood’s lone home without a pending contract priced north of $400,000 at the moment.

But at least three renovations of similar vintage have sold above that threshold in recent years, topping out with this much larger dwelling on the same street that bagged a neighborhood record $530,000 last year.
