For proof that owning in the $100,000s is still an actual thing on Atlanta’s eastside, look no further than smaller condos in older buildings among the hills of Virginia and Poncey-Highlands.
Case in point is Unit 5 in a tidy, two-story building on Ponce De Leon Place, essentially across the street from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail and around the corner from Ponce City Market. (Thus, an 87 WalkScore).
It posted this week with Chapman Hall Realty for $176,000.
Owning here does entail $275 HOA fees each month, but in terms of amenities, that includes a backyard hangout area and a basement storage space, down near the communal laundry.
Granted, echoes probably won’t be a problem in this one-bedroom, one-bathroom space of about 600 square feet. Listing adjectives include “adorable” and “incredibly charming,” and there’s definitely merit to that.
It’s an example of being simple, clean, and updated—with a legit bedroom door for privacy—when that might be all that’s called for.
The paint and windows are new, but the hardwoods thankfully aren’t.
