$165K buys deftly updated condo in the middle of Midtown

One-bedroom unit boasts compelling Fox Theatre and city views—at least for now

The Windsor Over Peachtree building has stood, as the name implies, over Atlanta’s signature street since 1965. More recently, it’s come to be known as a bastion of affordable condo ownership in a district where million-dollar units aren’t uncommon anymore.

Case in point is this one-bedroom flat with a generous balcony, sensible open floorplan, and HOA commitments that are hardly crushing.

With a $165,000 asking price in this location, of course it’s relatively small for Atlanta (a single bedroom and bathroom in 741 square feet), but it comes in a condition the listing describes as “beautifully updated.”

That’s a reference to the refreshed kitchen with butcher-block countertops and handsome sink, new appliances, updated lighting, fresh paint, and new flooring.

Given recent development news, however, the touted “gorgeous views” of the Fox Theatre and Georgian Terrace might be more temporary attributes.

Under construction in the surface parking lot next door is a dual-branded, 14-story hotel (Marriott Courtyard, with Marriott Element) that’s expected to open by mid-2021, obstructing or blocking northward condo views.

Still, among 16 or so condos for sale at Windsor Over Peachtree right now, this unit is tied for cheapest, following a $2,500 discount last month. (Larger units climb up to about $290,000.)

Records indicate the property initially listed in March and went under contract in May, but that deal appears to have crumbled.

The monthly HOA fees—just $48 in this case $576, in this case—include all utilities, per the Keller Williams Realty listing.

Other compelling aspects: the 91 “Walker’s Paradise” WalkScore, plus the onsite gym, pool, and concierge. It comes with a parking space.

The building underwent a recent big-bucks renovation, per the listing, that swapped the elevators and redid everything from the lobby to resident hallways.
