It’s a space-conscious option at the Park View at O4W community

The micro, infill townhome community that is Park View at O4W was always planned to be an option for space-conscious urbanites who might scoff at the idea of 3,800 square feet across four floors—and hefty price tags to match.

Exemplifying that logic at the 2017 project is a resale that posted this week at $625,000 with Beacham & Company.

Billed by developers as “intimate,” the five-unit venture replaced what was basically a fenced-in lawn overlooking Historic Fourth Ward Park, within about two city blocks of both Ponce City Market and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail.

The unit in question, No. 2, is among the smallest at 1,494 square feet, spread across three stories over a one-car garage. That translates to modestly sized, skinny rooms, although ceilings of at least 10 feet help to open spaces up.

A kitchen with stainless appliances and a glass and wood door.
Upon entry, visitors find themselves in the kitchen, with a tiled backsplash to the ceiling, KitchenAid stainless appliances, quartz, and a stairway to sleeping levels.

As is, there are three bathrooms and just two bedrooms; a top-floor bonus area, however, could be walled-in for a third, as the listing notes. (That’d take a lot of drywall, being that ceilings in that room soar to 18 feet.)

A terrace extends off that top level, while a roomier patio is accessed via the living room. Beyond a small parking lot, both exterior hangouts have views of that lovely park, and beyond that, of course, are “eateries, coffeehouses, markets, and entertainment venues” described in the listing as “endless.”

Records indicate this townhome has sold once before, in December 2017, for $508,000.

Living here also entails HOA fees, listed at $153 monthly. Maybe it’s the lack of (non-virtual) furnishings, but the place looks barely lived-in.
