This fresh listing on Cabbagetown’s Estoria Street is aiming to capitalize on its circa-1920s appeal, an eye-pleasing backyard, strong walkability, and what’s a relatively low single-family home price for the neighborhood at the moment.
Which says something about where Cabbagetown home prices—like those of its eastside brethren—have been trending.
Listed last week with Compass for $525,000, it’s the neighborhood’s only standalone house (without a contract) asking less than the mid-$600,000s right now, as listing agent Susan Powell points out.
“And at about $408 per square foot, we’re right in line with several other two-bedroom recent sales [in Cabbagetown],” Powell noted in an email to Curbed Atlanta.
Charming from the street, the bungalow is positioned between the neighborhood’s eponymous park and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail at Krog Street Tunnel, which could help mitigate the fact the property has no dedicated parking.
The square footage is pegged at just under 1,300, with two bathrooms total.
So a McMansion it’s not, but the Home-Sweet-Home vibes are real. The repainted exterior brandishes a friendly front porch (with swing) and elevated back deck where springtime cookouts would be right at home.
The restoration is described as a careful balance of vintage features (fireplaces, molding, original hardwoods) with today’s comforts (kitchen island, laundry room, California closets, some granite).
The remarkably green backyard was landscaped by pros, with an unexpected bonus in the very back: A cutesy shed that’s like a pint-sized version of the house.
