It’s a tri-level, live-work space with two bedrooms around the corner from Ponce City Market and Beltline

A decade before Ponce City Market opened its doors as a live-work-play tourist attraction on the north side of Old Fourth Ward, there was Sager Lofts, a pioneer in the concept of living where you work in this section of Atlanta.

The sturdy, stucco-clad, three-level building overlooking Glen Iris Drive has a certain timelessness to it. But lofts offered for sale here in recent years haven’t always been the most conducive to strictly living. And least not in comfort. Or with kids.

Listed this week at $775,000 with Keller Williams Realty Metro ATL, this condo offers tons of potential for customization with decorative touches meant to soften so much concrete, glass, and well, volume.

At a massive 3,225 square feet, its interior spaces are comparable to many five-bedroom houses around intown Atlanta. But this property brings just two designated bedrooms—although a flex space could quickly be converted with a Murphy bed or air mattress—alongside two and half bathrooms.

Following a recent discount up the street, its price makes the Sager Lofts option the neighborhood’s priciest condo on the market right now. Being so large, the sizable monthly HOA commitment of $450 isn’t surprising.

The 2005 building carries a rare MRC-1 zoning, which allows for a live-work arrangement. At ground level, the window-heavy storefront look certainly means business.

The modernized kitchen with Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, a two-car garage at terrace level, and two-minute walkability to Historic Fourth Ward Park qualify as perks.

And more homey touches come with abundant hardwoods and the master bedroom’s balcony for sipping morning coffee in the trees.
