This installment of Curbed Comparisons examines what $450,000—give or take $9,000—will purchase Inside the Perimeter right now.
It appears this price point is the sweet spot for comfortably sized homes in sought-after locations. The following options have no less than two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with square footage ranging from 1,168 to 2,248. It’s no surprise that Atlanta condos outnumber houses at this price point, but a good selection of single-family homes is available.
Sporting “protected views” of Midtown, this 1,168-square-foot Spire condo features two bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a living room, kitchen, and balcony. Throughout those rooms, there’s a variety of finishes that provide a lot of texture. Think hardwood floors, granite countertops, subway tile, and concrete walls. Monthly HOA fees of $558 will add a hefty chunk to the current asking price of $450,000.
Following a major remodel in 2007, this 1930 Craftsman in Reynoldstown spans 1,390 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. In addition to an open floorplan “perfect for hanging out or entertaining,” the home also sports a covered front porch, deck, and paver patio in the fenced backyard. With off-street parking in the alley, the home is minutes from Lang-Carson Park, the Manigault Street Playlot, and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail. Asking price is $459,000.
In this 1,210-square-foot loft in Buckhead, 12-foot ceilings and exposed brick walls provide texture and character tempered by the modern aesthetic found in the kitchen and both bathrooms. Custom hardwood floors run through most of the unit, including the two bedrooms. In return for the monthly HOA fees of $580, potential buyers will receive two parking spaces and a storage unit, plus access to a 24/7 concierge, gym, and dog park. Current ask: $450,000.
With three bedrooms and four bathrooms on four floors, this 1,746-square-foot townhome in Lake Claire offers plenty for those who want modern. With hardwoods throughout, modern stair rails, 10-foot ceilings, and a private sky terrace, the 2016 home comes across as very clean and welcoming. The listing claims it’s “so close” to Candler Park and Ponce City Market. Candler Park, yes, but PCM? Not so much. Right now, the asking price is $449,900.
Between Adair Park I and II, this 1920s bungalow (making a second appearance on these pages) comes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,248 square feet. While it retains the original baseboards, pocket doors, and window trim, it also includes modern updates like new lighting fixtures, plus an updated kitchen and bathrooms. It does have a detached garage, but walking is a breeze to the Beltline’s Westside Trail and growing Lee+White development. Current ask: $450,000.
