Asking prices for standalone houses have officially climbed into the $600,000s in West End.

Whether the ask here on Sells Avenue is realistic or not remains to be seen, but it was merely two years ago that another five-bedroom West End home raised eyebrows (and some hackles) when trading for a then-record $425,000.

Listed at $650,000 about three weeks ago and holding firm, the remodeled 3,400-square-footer can be found on the northern fringes of West End, about five blocks from the Beltline’s Westside Trail. The expansive front porch overlooks Dean Rusk Park, which has a picturesque lake.

Inside, every aspect (save one old fireplace) is new, from the kitchen’s granite to the upstairs second kitchen and lighted pantry. A theme of darker tiles as sort of interior-design racing stripes carries throughout the home.

The interior approach, save for a brick fireplace, is clearly clean-lined contemporary.

There’s a veritable parking lot (uncovered) behind the house, which could help legitimize the listing’s insistence that this is an ideal AirBnb or VRBO opportunity, with its finished attic apartment. The home is zoned to be a duplex, and comparable Airbnb listings start at $30 per night, notes the listing.

Prior to renovations, the property sold in September 2017 for $198,000, records show.

Elsewhere in West End, two restored homes on historic Peeples Street have traded in the $500,000s in the past year, setting the current high-water marks at $563,000 and $589,000, respectively.
