Piedmont Park proximity doesn’t get much better than this.
Living on 10th Street, at the doorstep of Atlanta’s marquee green space, wouldn’t be without headaches, including road closures and crowds for massive festivals and parades, the Peachtree Road Race, and an entire September weekend.
But would overlooking those nearly 200 acres—a sort of extended front yard—from a wraparound porch be worth the hassle the rest of the year?
That’s a chief selling point of this 105-year-old Midtown Victorian that blends historical detailing with 2020 comforts—hello, double fridges and ovens—for a level of refinement that’s marketed as being exceptional.
Notching 3,888 square feet—with an unfinished third story and massive raw basement, should that much space not suffice—the home listed this week with Dorsey Alston Realtors for $1.59 million.
Surprisingly, it’s one of just two built Midtown houses that aren’t live-work situations asking north of $1 million right now, with the other being a smaller bungalow priced $140,000 higher that comes with a backyard oasis.
The neighborhood’s priciest single-family home sale in history, it should be noted, came with a $1.88 million deal last May—and that home was also smaller, albeit slightly, than the Victorian in question.
Beyond the stone walkway, handsome facade, and porch large enough for a soiree on its own, the residence counts four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, plus two half-baths. Expect surprise deployments of stained glass and just as many fireplaces as a home of this size, style, and vintage needs.
A secondary master is located on the main level, but the one upstairs includes a sitting room with a bay window overlooking the park. (Nice).
Beyond the back porch and fire pit, the parking situation befits a property of this stature: a three-car garage accessed via an alley from Argonne Avenue, just west of Grady High School.
Like the garage, the overall property could be more than many families truly need, but for buyers with the dough, this combination of classy updates and choice location could allure.
