It’s called “adorable, spacious” living in the treetops, just south of the village’s attractions

Promoted as both spacious and adorable, this perky three-bedroom cottage in East Atlanta has no less than five porches, balconies, and other smaller options for heading outdoors and wishing a dismally wet winter away.

It’s tucked into a Jobeth Avenue tree-line a few blocks southeast of Brownwood Park, off Flat Shoals Avenue. The majority of East Atlanta Village eateries and watering holes are about a mile away, as the crow flies.

Built in 2003, the home leans rustic without being log cabin-y, which is appropriate for a creekside setting amongst a mature canopy that’s still squarely within a major city.

It listed this week with Keller Williams Realty Intown Atlanta for $388,000.

Among renovated, three-bedroom properties in East Atlanta right now, it’s the largest and second-cheapest, behind a refreshed 1930s bungalow a little closer to the action.

It had initially listed for $399,900 in October before being pulled from the market three months later at the current price, records show.

Main sections of the house comprise 1,449 square feet, although per the listing, a finished daylight basement brings substantially more living space, and so many outdoor rooms lend the feeling of a larger home.

The ubiquity of wood—beams overhead, plank flooring, many walls—seems right for the style. Which wouldn’t look out of place in Blue Ridge or the outskirts of Dahlonega.
