New, 33 comments

At this price point, both space and in-demand locations are available

For this installment of Curbed Comparisons, we examine what $850,000—give or take $1,000—buys around Atlanta at the moment.

At this aspirational price point, spacious properties abound, primarily north of downtown. The smallest clocks in at 1,988 square feet with three bedrooms, while a larger condo, at 2,583 square feet, actually has just two bedrooms. The entire grouping, though, can be found in some of the city’s more sought-after neighborhoods.

Located in the recently renovated Concorde building in Peachtree Heights West, this 2,583-square-foot condo contains two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and “incredible entertaining space.” Stylishly renovated, the open floorplan features a loungy living room, dining area, and large kitchen, all with panoramic views of Buckhead, Perimeter, Midtown, and Vinings. It even comes with seven deeded parking spaces. The listing states HOA fees are more than $1,200 per month, which will significantly increase costs of living here, amongst the views and refreshed amenities. Current asking price: $850,000.

Just three blocks from the Beltline on Cresthill Avenue in Virginia-Highland, this 1925 bungalow boasts three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,988 square feet. Inside, updates include a renovated kitchen and updated master bathroom. Outside, a rocking-chair front porch and spacious back deck offer cozy retreats to enjoy the great outdoors. Plus, there’s a two-car garage. The asking price is $850,000.

Occupying a wooded lot on Stovall Boulevard in North Buckhead, this 1994 home is “move-in ready” with four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,941 square feet. Improvements include a new kitchen and master bathroom. Behind the house, a 350-square-foot, timber-roofed stone porch complete with fireplace will be the go-to spot for outdoor entertaining. Originally listed in June for $879,000, the property just received a $30,000 price cut, putting the current ask at $849,000.

Here’s proof that rooftop terraces (and postmodern leanings) have been around awhile. “Ideally located” on Peachtree Road in Ridgedale Park, this 2003 townhome features three bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,750 square feet on four floors. The “sophisticated, modern space” includes massive windows, an imported Bulthaup kitchen, and renovated bathrooms. But it’s the home’s rooftop that steals the show with skyline views. Current price: $850,000.

Claiming a corner lot near Sidney Marcus Park in Morningside, this 1928 bungalow includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,800 square feet. Full of interesting angles and arched doorways, the home has been well-maintained with many recent updates, per the listing. Outside, there’s not only a two-car garage, but also a nifty swimming pool. Originally listed for $899,000 in 2017, the property has received numerous price reductions and now has a current asking price of $850,000.
