Outdoor enthusiasts should dig the home’s proximity to nature

Tucked away in Candler Park, this circa-1920 bungalow offers something many intown homes lack: a full swimming pool.

Couple that with dedicated green space directly behind the property, and the listing’s claims of “rare privacy in the city” seem valid.

The 2,367-square-foot property underwent an expansion that converted the first floor into an open-concept design that features entertaining space from the large covered front porch to the deck out back, overlooking the pool.

While the home now brings a more modern aesthetic, it retains some of its original charm, as seen in the wood-burning brick fireplace, high ceilings, and hardwood floors.

In addition to the two bedrooms, including the master, on the first floor, the expansion also added two bedrooms on the second floor. Another bedroom and bathroom are found in the basement, although that particular space is still in need of renovation.

Once completed, though, that basement space could double as an in-law suite or Airbnb rental.

In addition to the pool “oasis” in the backyard, the home also is close to Candler Park, the Freedom Park Trail, and the Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA Station, earning it a 78 WalkScore.

Just listed with Park Realty, the current asking price is $675,000, which is a bit higher than the median home values for Candler Park, but certainly not the neighborhood’s most expensive listing.
