Behold the most quintessentially vintage Inman Park Victorian to reach the market in quite some time.

Built in 1898, this grand old gal is perched on a raise lot spanning nearly half an acre, basically overlooking Little Five Points. Wrecking Bar Brewpub is a few doors down.

It’s being marketed as a “rare moment” and chance to “own a piece of history,” and that’s not off-base.

Listed by Compass this week at $1.25 million, 1131 Austin Avenue counts four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms among 4,300 square feet that look achingly well-kept.

Beyond the pretty exterior and terrific wraparound porch, find 12-foot ceilings, a half-dozen working fireplaces with original mantels, a chef’s kitchen renovated to today’s standards, and plenty of intricate old woodwork for oomph.

A generous porch with, naturally, haint blue overhead.

One potential minus: There’s no shortage of off-street parking, but it’s not covered.

Records indicate the property underwent a substantial renovation about 50 years ago, and that it hasn’t sold since 2005, when it fetched $858,000.

It’s not the neighborhood’s priciest listing at the moment, but it’s one of just three standalone houses asking north of $1 million. Those include a 1907 relic with an equally grand exterior, but less painstakingly preserved interior, which has been for sale for nearly six months.

A half-dozen Inman Park houses scored $1 million or more in 2018—but none have this year. Could this be the first?

A foyer that makes a statement, where the first of six working fireplaces is presented. The staircase, like fireplaces, is original.
