Tucked off DeKalb Avenue and practically in the shadow of Inman Park’s MARTA hub, this 1925 bungalow maximizes a small lot and represents the more modest offerings of a neighborhood known for grander residences.
Described as a “treasure” on its dead-end street, the three-bedroom, three-bath Compass listing overlooks a green space with a PATH trail segment that wends to the Atlanta Beltline, downtown, or even Stone Mountain to the east. Little Five Points is a few blocks away, too.
Locations do come worse than this.
At 2,040 square feet, it’s hardly pint-sized, but concessions might have to be made by buyers assuming $749,000 checks every single box in such a highly coveted neighborhood these days.
Beyond its pretty stone retaining walls and cozy, practical porch, the house has been thoroughly renovated, to now include vaulted ceilings, a handsome walk-through kitchen, and a totally unexpected sauna connected to a downstairs bathroom.
With its stone patio and many trees, the backyard is fenced and relatively private, but it’s about the size of an Alpharetta deck. It is sufficient, though, as the listing notes, for a small party or romantic Valentine’s dinner.
One knock is that the property has no off-street parking, but this lane is a quieter one, so that might not be such a headache for drivers. Alternately, a few doors down is the aforementioned MARTA train station.
