About midway between downtown Atlanta and the airport, this 1930s brick bungalow is bringing a fresh face to the market in aptly named Sylvan Hills.

A couple of blocks west of Perkerson Park, a community centerpiece, the exposed porch timbers lend distinction to the Woodburne Drive facade.

Inside the two-bedroom, two-bathroom property is what the listing describes as a modern floorplan that didn’t forsake the original craftsmanship and charms.

It’s a flip by Real State Solutions, and the quality, per the listing, sets the house a notch above similar neighborhood offerings. Exp Realty listed it last week at $300,000 even.

Additions include fresh landscaping, quartz countertops, Samsung appliances, and basically all the nuts and bolts, from roof to windows and HVAC.

At 1,280 square feet, it’s roughly the size of most Atlanta two-bedroom condos. The living room, in particular, could be tight for any occupants but a single person or really close couple.

It’s one of about 10 single-family houses at the moment priced north of $300,000 in Sylvan Hills, where homes are asking as high as $489,000 for four bedrooms and adjacency to Perkerson Park.

Records indicate the property last traded in 2011 for $21,100, when the seller was Fannie Mae.
