Pardon the oxymoron, but a traditional intown modern home this is not.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,464 square feet, this contemporary creation on Wylie Street in Reynoldstown has definitely received some updates since the original structure was built in the 1930s.
The listing states the home’s last major remodel was in 1965. But looking at the price history from the past 10 to 15 years—and, obviously, the interior’s condition—it seems there must have been some improvements along the way.
Currently, the house features an open floorplan with a living room, dining area, and galley kitchen on the first floor. As shown in the listing photos, though, that dining area is quite the distance from the kitchen.
On the second floor, the master bedroom includes a private balcony that overlooks the fenced-in backyard. Nice touch.
In fact, one of the home’s best features is the backyard. It includes a large deck, accessed through the kitchen and one of the other bedrooms, which leads down to the spacious, tidy expanse of grass.
Although it has no garage or carport, the property does come with off-street parking. However, that might not be necessary for potential buyers who prefer other modes of transportation.
A few blocks from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, the house is convenient to such local destinations as Cabbagetown’s Carroll Street, Krog Street Market, and MARTA.
Listed by Paramount Brokers for $489,000, the property appears to be priced in line with similar homes. But the key will be landing a solid offer from someone who can overlook—or embrace—the unique exterior appearance.
