How better to combat Atlanta’s inevitable summer swelter than with an “insane secret oasis”?
That’s how Candace Garcia, a PalmerHouse Properties Realtor, describes the surprising backyard alterations at this 1930s Virginia-Highland bungalow, where $100,000 was spent in poolside stonework alone.
The property is expected to list Friday at $899,000 and has generated “Coming soon” buzz on Zillow, Garcia told Curbed Atlanta via email.
Beyond the very Ponce-y location—the home overlooks Ponce De Leon Place, just off the more well-known Ponce, around the corner from Ponce City Market—highlights include a quintessentially gracious porch, period detailing inside, and a water-falling hot tub and functional carriage house beside the aforementioned oasis.
“The front porch is to die for,” noted Garcia.
Between the main structure and studio flat above the garage, you’ll find four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 2,582 square feet here. It’s said to offer four parking spaces.
A major remodel transpired in 1985, per the Zillow data. It last sold seven years ago for $461,000, records show.
By square footage, it’ll be the neighborhood’s smallest home in the $900,000 range, but could a modified backyard like this warrant the premium?
