Nestled among the leafy streets of Lake Claire, about midway between Candler Park and Decatur, this 1928 Tudor is described as an alluring mix of updates and proximity to soothing green space.

Lake Claire is a wellspring of the Tudor style, with its classic, perky facades and arched interior passageways. This example on Lakeshore Drive, just south of Ponce De Leon Avenue, brings an elevated back deck, deep lot, and parking options that cheaper listings of similar styles don’t.

Located down the street from recently improved Lake Claire Park, this property backs up to babbling Lullwater Creek and the Frazer Forest with a granite-encased garage and ground-level patio.

It counts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and less square footage—1,536—than the exterior might let on. Updated throughout, the property listed this week for $700,000 with Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta.

For the size, it’s the neighborhood’s most expensive listing at the moment, by a considerable margin, although a finished basement that helps boost square footage might not be accounted for in the tally.

It last sold for $610,000—or $10,000 over asking price—in the fall of 2016, records show.
