It’s been nearly three years since a West End bungalow with Arts & Crafts appeal and 3,700 square feet squashed neighborhood sales records by trading—for more than its asking price—at $425,000.
But that number looks relatively tame now.
Historic West End home sales north of a half-million bucks have been a thing for a while, as this circa-1920 renovation is fully aware, listing in recent days with Area West Realty for $515,000.
The goal is to join three other single-family houses that’ve sold for more than a half-million dollars in recent years, topping out with an 1800s Four Square that fetched $585,000 in the summer of 2018.
Just one other West End option—a 2,800-square-foot, four-bedroom bungalow that comes furnished—is seeking more ($534,000) right now.
The perky Greenwich Street cottage in question stands a block and change from the Beltline’s Westside Trail, due east of Westview Cemetery. It’s a street dotted with similar renovations, though a neighboring property is clearly ailing.
Moving inside, the square footage is 2,100, a rep tells Curbed Atlanta. The bathroom count is three. And a flex office room isn’t included in bedroom counts.
It’s described as being attractively unassuming, with historic character (see: original fireplace, facade detailing) commingling with today’s conveniences (large closets, a true laundry room, fresh kitchen).
Off-street parking is limited to a pad in front, but a plus, per the listing, is this floorplan’s ability to host Airbnb stays or roommates.
A less tangible attraction, per marketing language: “Community!!”
