It’s said to have old-school charm without the maintenance hassles

The white picket fence isn’t the only feature that harkens Atlanta bungalows of old at this recent listing on Adair Park’s Tift Avenue.

There’s also a porch swing. A prominent brick chimney. A fireplace for burning real wood. And a deck that’s small by today’s standards.

Find this four-bedroom from 2006 a few doors down from Adair Park II, within a quick walk of all things afoot at The Met, the forthcoming Slim and Husky’s Pizza Beeria on Metropolitan Park, and in the other direction, the Lee + White brewery haven and Beltline’s Westside Trail.

Counting two bathrooms among 1,935 square feet, the house listed last week with Keller Knapp Realty for $400,000.

It embodies the area’s market fluctuation, having last sold about five years ago for $157,000—or less than half of the initial sales price in 2006, records show.

With its wide porch and throwback color scheme, “this newer construction has all the charm of [an] Atlanta classic without old house issues and upkeep,” reads the listing.

Open floorplan detractors might scoff upon walking in, but the lack of walls does allow for natural light to permeate—and for a general sense of roominess. Outside, the backyard is rather large and versatile, and the driveway parking looks sufficient for three vehicles.

It’s one of four built houses priced at $400,000 or higher in Adair Park right now.

Roughly 10 homes have sold between that mark and $530,000 in the neighborhood the past couple of years.
