What $700K buys around Atlanta right now

New, 36 comments

From timeworn charm to modern sophistication, this price point delivers a lot of choices intown

In this latest installment of Curbed Comparisons, we examine what $700,000 bags around Atlanta right now.

At this (still lofty) price point, there’s a lot of variety available throughout the city, particularly north and east of downtown, from renovated single-family homes to updated condos and new-builds. And they all seem to have quite a bit of space; in fact, the smallest in this group is still more than 1,700 square feet.

Essentially, it comes down to preferred architectural style and location.

With 1,893 square feet, this 1930 bungalow on Los Angeles Avenue in Virginia-Highland brings four bedrooms and two bathrooms. While the listing touts the home’s hardwood floors, built-ins, and many bonus spaces, it also states this is a “great opportunity” to start over and rebuild or implement a renovation with “your own design touches.” Originally listed August 1 for $719,000, it received a price cut just eight days later, bringing the current ask down to $700,000.

Overlooking Buckhead from The Borghese, this 2001 condo comes with three bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,475 square feet. Natural light fills the unit from the many expansive windows, which also provide panoramic views. A wrap-around balcony enhances those views with a large outdoor entertaining space. Although the exact amount is not disclosed, HOA fees cover water, gas, cable, and internet, as well as building amenities such as a 24-hour concierge. This listing first appeared on the market in June at $725,000, but the price has been slashed twice and now sits at $699,000.

Designed by noted Georgia architect Leila Ross Wilburn, this 1925 bungalow in Druid Hills is rumored to have been built for Bobby Jones. Inside the 1,720-square-foot home, two bedrooms and two bathrooms share space with an updated kitchen and renovated master bathroom. Although you won’t find a putting green on the property, there is an “inviting entertainers” front porch, a nice backyard, and a detached garage. The current asking price is $699,000.

At 805 Peachtree in Midtown, this 1951 loft includes two bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,330 square feet. A corner unit, this spacious home also has cherry hardwood floors, a storage unit across the hall, and two balconies. Steep monthly HOA fees of $1,100 cover such building amenities as a fitness center, swimming pool, 24-hour concierge, and guest suites. Originally listed in May for $715,000, the price was reduced in July and now stands at $700,000.

A new addition to Clay Street in Kirkwood, this 2,362-square-foot home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms, plus a full basement and two-car garage. Design elements in the open floorplan include shiplap, subway tile, clean lines, and plenty of recessed lighting. The large deck atop the garage is a great spot for outdoor entertaining but the lack of a staircase to the landscaped backyard is a notable misstep. This listing originally appeared on the market in March for $779,000, but has undergone numerous price cuts and now stands at $699,900.
