Two blocks east of the Fox Theatre, between Ponce de Leon Avenue and Piedmont Park, chances to live in a nondescript but nonetheless historic building are offered at prices that might not break banks.
Case in point is this true one-bedroom flat that maximizes 784 square feet.
The building, Chatam Court, has stood since 1919 at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Third Street. It was designed by pioneering female architect Leila Ross Wilburn, whose buildings and homes—most notably bungalows—dot the streets of places like Decatur, Lake Claire, and yes, Midtown.
Wilburn, who died in the 1960s, likely never envisioned that the National Register of Historic Places-listed building would carry a 90 WalkScore today, bolstering the listing’s claim that this constitutes “sophisticated city living at its finest.”
The condo in question listed this past weekend with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate for $225,000. Monthly HOA fees are $275.
The unit was recently updated with energy-efficient windows and plantation shutters, though charmingly older aspects like the original hardwoods remain.
A surprise bonus: Gated parking and a private storage unit comes with.
