Walkability to retail and Beltline leisure is real, but will a single bathroom hold it back?

In terms of style and proportion, Atlanta cottages don’t get much cuter than this.

Described as “adorable” and “the quintessential ATL bungalow” in listing language, this circa-1920, two-bedroom abode hit the market this week for a relatively palatable $325,000.

It’s a number that could lure first-time intown buyers or down-sizers willing to compromise, and a property for house-hunters more interested in practicality than wow factor.

Located just east of Moreland Avenue and south of Hosea Williams Drive, the address counts a strong 76 WalkScore, boosted by nearby retail, transit, and surely the Eastside Trail a few blocks west.

At 1,162 square feet, the house is comparable to a large one-bedroom condo around Atlanta or average two-bedroom.

Only here, $325,000 buys freedom from shared walls—but the responsibilities inherent in a mighty big yard.

For gatherings, the inviting porch and generous deck could help compensate for the tight quarters within. The single bathroom, however, might be a real hurdle for parties and many ATL buyers in general.

Off-street parking is included, with a fittingly wee driveway at right.
