[Correction, January 17, 12:54 p.m. The property owner sends documentation that shows the home’s square footage is larger than previously stated here, 2,580 square feet, contrary to listings and city property records. We apologize for the error.]
Maybe eight blocks due east of Ponce City Market, this 1920s bungalow is a showcase of home-design aspects that Atlanta traditionalists typically adore.
The charming fence and primped yard. The sky-high curb appeal, to include a wide front porch both functional and cozy. The abundant molding and rooms not overly huge or stripped of their vintage appeal.
Whether that all justifies $622 per square foot in Atlanta is another matter. (That’s higher than the average listing price in Los Angeles, although homes in that city’s most desirable districts, such as Venice, cost significantly more .)
The eyeopening cost/square foot breakdown in Poncey-Highland is a product of the house’s not-McMansion size—hardly cramped at
2,048 2,580 square feet, but with a price of $1,275,000, as listed this week with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty. Sales records don’t show any houses of comparable size and style that have sold for more than $900,000 in the area, although maybe the level of refinement could set this Seminole Avenue charmer apart?
The location is obviously appealing, with Freedom Park (and its connective PATH Trail) a block away, and the shops and eats around Poncey-Highland and Little Five Points basically within sight.
Counting four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the renovated home itself is described as “gorgeously appointed” with one delightful room after the next. The floorplan’s flowing, as opposed to wide open, punctuated with coffered ceilings and humidity-fighting ceiling fans in the right places.
There’s a long driveway that stretches into the sloped backyard, but the property lacks covered parking.
Records indicate the home last sold in 2014, following a renovation, for $690,000. It was briefly listed for sale early last year at $1,115,000.
