This new listing at Glen Iris Lofts in the Old Fourth Ward could appeal to Atlanta condo hunters who favor what might be called a “semi-industrial” or “soft raw” aesthetic.
Okay, maybe not the latter.
In any case, it’s a blend of bare concrete, exposed brick, and more refined updates—and proof that the cheapest townhomes in all of O4W aren’t the only things going for north of a half-million bucks these days.
Built two decades ago, the building stands across Glen Iris Drive from Ponce City Market, which means the Beltline and Historic Fourth Ward Park are also within shouting distance. Other listings under the same roof in recent years have come across as early-aughts dated, but a renovation this year helped alleviate that with this particular unit.
Listed with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty for $525,000, it counts two open bedrooms and two full bathrooms in 1,569 square feet, large enough to be coined “oversized” in the listing.
It’s bigger than average for the building, with an interior storage space in addition to the laundry closet, plus large industrial-style windows to complement the high ceilings. What’s called “designer waxed hardwoods” and carpet lend variety to the concrete, while Nelson bubble lamps in most rooms add visual pop.
Zillow pegs the HOA at a considerable $539 per month, but the listing stresses how that covers everything but electricity—gas, trash, water, Google Fiber, plus upkeep of a pool and dog runs.
The Walk Score of 94 makes this a certified “Walker’s Paradise” among the more walkable single locales in all of Atlanta, although no train station would be considered nearby.
Added bonus: the ability to snicker at Christmas shoppers who can’t find parking spaces as you do your dishes.
