New, 32 comments

A combination of abundant space and desirable locations make these properties a great choice

This installment of Curbed Comparisons examines what $800,000–give or take $5,000–will purchase around Atlanta at the moment.

At this price point, potential buyers will find a good selection of properties–mostly single-family homes and condos–for sale north and east of the city center. Not only are these highly sought-after locations, but the homes in these areas also come with a lot of space. Even the condos are spacious, relatively speaking with regard to condos.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,874 square feet, this new East Lake farmhouse claims to merge “the best historical details and modern amenities” in the listing. Those range from leaded and stained glass windows to built-ins to subway tile in the kitchen and bathrooms.

While it’s already quite spacious, there is an unfinished basement ready and waiting to be converted. Plus you can walk to East Lake Park, 2nd+Hosea, and much more. Current asking price is $799,900.


Just south of Collier Road in Ardmore, this 2010 Brookwood condo comes with two bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,700 square feet. Clean, sharp lines are complemented by the sweeping views from the many floor-to-ceiling windows.

Building amenities range from a junior Olympic-sized swimming pool to an outdoor kitchen to concierge services. Although HOA fees weren’t disclosed, it looks like they could add between $355 and $580 per month to your mortgage payment. The current asking price is $799,900.


Full of 1930s charm, this Garden Hills home features five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,320 square feet. On the heels of a recent renovation, which is most evident in the kitchen and bathrooms, this property includes a full basement with a bonus room, guest bedroom, and bathroom, making it ideal for those interested in the airbnb market.

Behind the home, a large deck and private backyard provide the ideal space for your outdoor entertaining. Current asking price is $799,000.


Blocks from downtown Decatur, this top-to-bottom renovation touched every aspect of this home’s 1,440 square feet. With five bedrooms and four bedrooms, the house shows off such popular trends as an abundance of shiplap, three sets of barn doors, and subway tile in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Although it includes plenty of off-street parking, the listing states there’s ample room in the backyard to build a detached garage and/or carriage house. The current asking price is $799,900.


At the W. Residences in downtown, this 2010 condo is outfitted with two bedrooms and three bathrooms, although the listing doesn’t state the square footage. Given it’s an end unit, it does showcase spectacular views of the city looking toward the north. It also is filled with luxury upgrades like Gaggenau commercial appliances, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, and a Robernmedicine cabinet.

HOA fees, which run a hefty $1,219 per month, cover such amenities as valet parking, concierge services, a fitness center, and–just what everyone needs–a helipad. Current ask is $795,000.
