For $350K, Cabbagetown condo is a study in brick, wood, polished concrete

It’s called one of the largest single-bedroom units at historic Stacks Lofts, but there’s just one bedroom

In recent years, condos of virtually every shape and size have come to market at Cabbagetown’s Stacks at Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts, from gothically large to mercilessly refined.

But this corner unit could present something different, if slightly so.

It’s marketed as being one-of-a-kind and among the largest one-bedrooms (1,583 square feet) in this repurposed factory of some 500 homes.

The landmark building—a pioneering example of adaptive-reuse in Atlanta—was originally a 19th century cotton mill. Transformed into lofts in the 1990s, it withstood a wicked fire in 1999 and a tornado a decade ago.

One look inside this particular loft, with its immensely thick brick walls, and such resiliency makes sense.

The kitchen’s positioning off the entry.

Most ceilings appear to be in the ballpark of 16 feet, punctuated by original windows and wooden beams. The exposed brick and polished concrete floors should appeal to fans of the rugged, repurposed, urban Atlanta look.

Other positives include the primo location—the 82 WalkScore qualifies as “Very Walkable,” which is what Cabbagetown is—and pleasing views from so many windows. Ditto for easy access to the communal rooftop patio.

The single-bedroom status could rub some condo-hunters wrong (although there’s plenty of living room for guest camping), and the flow from kitchen to living room might not be ideal. A big deal? Maybe not.

Records show it last traded in 2016 for $310,000. It listed this week at $349,900 with Keller Williams Realty First Atlanta.

The $395 monthly HOA fee is something else to keep in mind, but it grants crucial summertime access to a large pool—and maybe the only one in Atlanta surrounded by such gorgeous ruins.
