When it comes to desirable intown locations, this 1920s bungalow in Inman Park is no wannabe.

In fact, the addresses’ tempting 89 WalkScore could really spice up an urbanist’s life.

Exactly what a 1990s British pop quintet has to do with all that remains to be seen, but the listing for this three-bedroom property begins by blurting: “SO TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT YOU REALLY, REALLY WANT.”

The Spice Girls invocation is a nod to the “LOCATION, LIFESTYLE, COMFORT” the property affords. Indeed, Krog Street Market’s entrance sign is visible from the front porch, and entrances to the Beltline’s Eastside Trail are just beyond the backyard.

But the 1,528-square-footer has undergone a $10,000 reduction this week, down to $640,000, making it the coveted neighborhood’s least expensive standalone house at the moment.

“WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?” the listing asks, in closing, citing another lyric.

The house listed in mid-July with Keller Williams Realty/Atlanta Turtle Group, a team that appears to commonly uses song lyrics as a candid selling tactic.

Inside, the master bathroom has been recently refreshed; it’s one of two, and most buyers in this neighborhood wouldn’t consider the second loo up to snuff.

Like the social front porch (with swing), the retained fireplace and beefy back deck are highlights.

Parking might be tighter than buyers in the mid-$600K range might prefer, but the flat driveway is indeed off-street, sufficient for two vehicles nose-to-tail.

Records show the property last traded in the economic doldrums of 2009 for $260,000.

But if you want its future, forget its past.
