It’s a 1915 cottage on a corner lot in Edgewood, but judging by the listing proclamations, you’d think it’s a restored Philip Shutze classic in Peachtree Heights or something:
“Fully appointed homes of this caliber, and with this much character, are rarely available,” is one example. Another: “High ceilings, original fireplaces, and other period details make this home a truly curated and unparalleled offering in the area.”
Applause for the passionate marketing, and there is much to clap for here on Mortimer Place.
Tucked a block in from busy Moreland Avenue, just north of equally busy Memorial Drive, the house listed this week for $499,900 with Engel & Volkers Intown Atlanta, an example of what a half-million bucks bags in eastside neighborhoods described as “white-hot.”
The 2017 full renovation looks very 2019, with the open shelving, rustic lighting choices, and subway tile commingling with period details that were spared.
At 1,500 square feet, it manages three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, all updated.
It’s a situation where Carrara marble meets a vintage clawfoot tub, and where a rocking-chair front porch complements a fenced and very functional backyard, with a couple of parking spaces wedged off the street.
It last sold, almost immediately, in early 2017 for $402,000. That was $12,000 over asking.
