Dutch-style lodge flirts with $1 million but offers Midtown walkability

Just a few lots in from Atlanta’s signature thoroughfare, situated on a roundabout, this Ansley Park bungalow from 1985 is almost imperceptible from the street.

And that was clearly intentional.

Fittingly summarized as “enchantment in Midtown,” this four-bedroom abode is nestled in its own urban dell, rendered in a style not all that common in Atlanta: the Dutch gambrel, with a barn-like roof.

Being so close to Peachtree Street and hubs like Colony Square, the relatively strong 72 WalkScore isn’t unexpected, though it may surprise for a place that seems so secluded. Decks off the front and back aim to capitalize on the setting.

The leafy pedestrian entry.

Inside is the type of timber-clad, lodge-like setting where folk art looks right at home. The kitchen’s been modernized, and the centerpiece fireplace surely toasts the living room and den on chilly winter nights.

The listing indicates that a driveway is shared, and photos appear to depict a parking pad near one entrance.

But the 2,149 square feet inside means the breakdown is more than $460 per square foot.

The property listed this week with Harry Norman Realtors for $995,000, following a 5 percent discount.

The previous price, as posted in April, was $1,049,000. Records indicate the home has never traded hands before, and the lot last went for a mere $30,000 in 1979.

Substantially larger, attractive homes are available in Ansley Park for $100,000 less, but none, of course, have a setting comparable to this half-acre.
