Corner-lot property aims to capitalize on recent eastside style trends

A little red cottage this is no more.

Aiming to capitalize on intown style trends and buyers’ appetites for more space, this formerly nondescript residence on a main East Lake street has been dramatically remade.

Beyond a taller, bolder facade, it incorporates a dark exterior color scheme with wood flourishes, an arrangement of contemporary windows, and a sleek, open, somewhat spartan interior—all contrasts to what had been.

The work of Triton Holdings, the same group behind this recent West End remodel, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom property listed this week at $699,980, via Keller Williams Realty.

It joins about eight houses in the neighborhood asking in the $700K range—or well above.

Before and after at 2767 Hosea Williams Drive SE.

Located about seven blocks east of the neighborhood’s growing 2nd+Hosea project, the 2,673-square-footer was remodeled recently, like the property next door.

Features include a double-height foyer that opens to main living spaces with lighter oak hardwoods, leading back to a kitchen with waterfall counters and a wine fridge. Beyond that is a new “entertainer’s deck” capable of hosting a graduation party—or concert.

The general style, while not everyone’s cup o’ tea, has become more prevalent in East Lake the past few years, with many more examples in the works or actively listed.

The corner lot property moved for $275,000 in December, records show.
