In recent days, a follower of Inman Park real estate chimed in with an interesting observation: A property on tony Elizabeth Street had lingered on the market for weeks, despite a whopping $400,000 in price reductions.

“[It’s] still on market despite being in a primo location and of a large size,” wrote the reader, via email.

Spoke too soon.

Marketed as a rare chance to call Elizabeth Street home—with the Hurt and Candler mansions as neighbors, and Inman Park’s centerpiece green space, Springvale Park, just beyond the backyard—the circa-1920 residence didn’t last long on the open market this time around.

Last sold two years ago for $926,000 and more recently renovated, the wood-shingled six-bedroom was offered for an even $2 million in mid-May.

The throwback detailing and sheer size of the property is apparent immediately, on the porch.

It was quickly snatched up after coming back on the market at the current price—$1.6 million, as listed with Atlanta Intown Real Estate Services—this past weekend.

At that price, it’s Inman Park’s second priciest single-family listing at the moment, behind another discounted, large residence on nearby Austin Avenue.

The listing explains that current owners bought the 5,400-square-foot dwelling in 2017 from a family that’d owned it for four decades and then embarked on renovations—but a relocation to California means “a couple of small projects” remain to be tackled.

Once complete, the home “will be one of the finest in Inman Park,” the listing asserts.

It’s a ton of space and certainly a compelling package, beginning with the admirable “Very Walkable” WalkScore of 86 and continuing with the gorgeous woodwork detailing throughout. Inside, find coffered ceilings, Craftsman millwork, clawfoot tubs, and the convenience of a second kitchen for guests.

Off-street, gated parking is listed as large enough for three or more vehicles, but none of it is covered. At least not yet.

The listing notes that ample space exists for both a garage and pool.

Off the entry, Craftsman millwork abounds.
Period detailing and a handsome fireplace highlight a living room off the foyer.
The new kitchen, with thick stone surfaces and open, rustic shelving.
Toward the pantry, and a nook.
The clawfoot tub and vintage-style fixtures are no surprise in the master bathroom.
