From the roof to the electrical breakers and sheetrock throughout, this 1936 bungalow on Southwest Atlanta’s Beecher Street has been infused with a whole lot of new, but for renovators the investment has yet to pay off.

It stands about a block from the Beltline’s Westside Trail, as the crow flies, just northwest of the Lee+White warehouse redevelopment that’s home to a growing slate of eateries and breweries.

Though it may technically fall within Oakland City, the listing identifies the “subdivision” as West End Park.

Billed as “another fantastic renovation from Real Estate Solutions Interactive,” the one-story abode initially listed at $425,000 in September. Records indicate a pending sale may have crumbled between then and today.

It’s emerging on various listings hubs this week at the same price, as offered with EXP Realty.

Aside from being thorough, the renovation was full of “integrity and attention to detail,” as the listing posits. It melds elements of the home’s original charm with a restrained contemporary feel (honeycomb tiling notwithstanding), though some may quibble with so much painted brick.

There’s a new deck to complement the ample front porch, and a long driveway but no covered parking.

Pertinent numbers: three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 1,525 square feet, for a potential breakdown of $278 per square foot. Closing cost credits are also on the table, an incentive spotted with other deals in recent months that seems to be more common these days.

Added bonus: “This home was built under the supervision of licensed and insured professionals,” the listing notes, “with all building permits pulled and all inspections passed.” Sweet!
