The gingerbread trim adorning the porch at this early 1900s Victorian cottage in Inman Park seems to hint at formal interiors within, but that’s hardly the case.

Instead of gilded wallpaper and fanciful cabinetry, this Ashland Avenue three-bedroom is more record players and modernized bathrooms, with a hammock for good vibes.

Listed at $825,000 through Keller Knapp Realty, it represents middle-of-the-road pricing for Inman Park right now, where the handful of houses for sale ranges from $640,000 to about $1.2 million.

Find it roughly two blocks and just up a hill from Krog Street Market and the Eastside Trail, offering a perky, vintage facade and a one-car garage in addition to driveway parking.

The WalkScore lands at 85—strong for a single-family nabe.

Inside are two and a half bathrooms and no shortage of quirks (hello, blue flooring and mirrored barn doors) among 2,220 square feet. Attractions include 12-foot ceilings, an abundance of hand-milled woodwork, and that little coffee bar beside an unexpected, rooftop balcony.

The listing assures us it lives like a four-bedroom house and is “larger than it seems from the street view.” Whether it’s an $800k+ property remains to be seen.
