This Old Fourth Ward home called the “intown dream” is now asking $740K

A proclamation like “This listing will surely not last long” seems more bold now than possibly any point in the past decade, but in terms of location, this property does have the ingredients Atlantans have been ravenously hungry for in recent years.

Built on an Old Fourth Ward corner lot about five years ago, this three-bedroom traditional stands high at 619 Auburn Avenue.

That means the Beltline’s Eastside Trail is a block away, as the crow flies. Krog Street Market is a few yards beyond that. And walkable options have multiplied in virtually all directions since the home was erected.

It’s described as the “intown dream” but has been on the market since the country was relatively normal in early February, having undergone one discount since.

The exterior certainly blends with larger, older houses in O4W’s southern reaches, bookended by two smaller but functional porches.

Moving inside, these 1,990 square feet include three bathrooms and one space after the next that appears lovingly maintained. The listing, in fact, deploys adjectives “pristine” and “immaculate” in reference to the kitchen.

A sticking point could be the stubby driveway parking, but sellers sound confident the drive can be expanded to accommodate a second vehicle.

A price adjustment of $20,000 late last month brought the ask to $739,900, as listed with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties.

It last traded for $477,000 when new in 2015, records show.
