$569K Old Fourth Ward listing echoes Charleston, dangles ‘suburban privacy’

New, 50 comments

On dead-end street near Highland Avenue eats, two-story dwelling has twice as many decks as bedrooms

A new Old Fourth Ward home to the market in the Charleston style.
The double-porch approach on Lampkin Street.

In a style found around Atlanta and commonly referred to as Charleston, characterized by tall stature and an abundance of patios, this Old Fourth Ward residence from 2005 is promoted as having a rare combination of privacy and walkability.

How private? We’re talking “suburban privacy,” as the listing puts it.

It’s a reference to the seclusion offered by a dead-end street and mature trees, but the suburban mention could make an urbanite bristle, especially with a property in a Beltline neighborhood with no dedicated parking (but a dynamite 88 WalkScore).

Step out the front door, and you’ll find paved-path access to Highland Avenue, entering near the original Highland Bakery. The Eastside Trail and PATH segment linking to downtown (or Stone Mountain) are also minutes away by foot.

The home itself is rather slender, which helps explain the 1,472 square feet, and the number of decks (four) doubles the bedroom count. Which isn’t to suggest the living situation is cramped.

Beyond locale, perks include skyline glimpses from the upper floor, a handsome backyard fireplace, a marble backsplash, and the fact that one neighboring lot is “unbuildable,” per the listing.

The home was listed via Properly for $579,900 this week, which like many O4W properties, flirts with $400 per square foot.

Records indicate it last traded two years ago for $444,000.
