Finished basements aren’t exclusively the domain of the suburbs, just as cool midcentury facets such as sunken living rooms aren’t only found in MCM hotbeds like northern Atlanta and the Stone Mountain area.
This revived 1960s ranch in Southwest Atlanta proves it.
Nestled off Cascade Road, between Interstate 285 and the Cascade Springs Nature Preserve, the five-bedroom house is part of the Lynhurst Acres neighborhood, where ranches, angular midcentury moderns, and so many mature trees are in abundance.
Purchased and renovated by JB Sorgen and now listed by 20 West Realty, the flip brings impressive square footage (3,768) and a price ($404,000) that could even appeal to first-time ITP buyers.
Those who don’t mind living a 20-minute drive from downtown, that is.
The highlight could be the architectural windows and how they frame the lush woods just beyond, as seen from the kitchen, main living room, master bathroom, and other spaces.
At the lowest level, two bedrooms and a separate entry could make for Airbnb income, the listing suggests.
And in the backyard, the two stories of porches are almost excessively long, although not so deep. There’s plenty of space, though, for taking a seat and enjoying summertime cicada chatter in those woods.
