It’s a (relatively) inexpensive entree to Candler Park, but with just one bathroom

At the moment, just eight single-family houses (without contracts) are available across Candler Park, and this 1920s bungalow is the least expensive among them—by a considerable margin.

But space-hungry Atlanta buyers looking for timeworn charm in choice locations would likely have to make compromises. Like how to live with a single bathroom.

Brandishing an oversized front porch and off-street parking, which Candler Park bungalows don’t always have, the two-bedroom residence stands a block from the anything-goes epicenter of Little Five Points, an eastside retail, dining, and nightlife oasis.

Couple that with MARTA transit and groceries within blocks, and the strong 87 WalkScore hardly surprises.

The neighborhood is aptly described in the listing as “one of Atlanta’s most desirable,” while the two bedrooms are called large, the floorplan open, and the bathroom updated.

It’s true the period details (original fireplace, built-ins, well-kept hardwoods) are appealing, but the square footage (1,061) could be a tougher sell.

The asking price is $450,000 even, via Keller Williams Atlanta Midtown.

There’s ample space for various furniture arrangements on the inviting porch.
