It’s not huge, but this three-bedroom abode on a tree-shaded lot was renovated with character

This new East Atlanta listing is aiming for a touch of midcentury flair where you wouldn’t necessarily expect it: a 1940s bungalow with dormers and two stories.

That style comes via furnishings and maybe a custom built-in or two, so it’s not totally significant or permanent for bungalow lovers not feeling the MCM thing.

Thoroughly renovated in recent years (with an Easter-appropriate exterior color scheme now), the 1947 house is tucked off Bouldercrest Drive, a little more than a mile from the heart of EAV.

The setting is quiet, tree-filled, and heavy with postwar ranches and cottages in a similar vein.

A custom wall of built-ins delineates spaces in the main living areas off the entry.

The interior, which definitely qualifies as bright, manages to bring three bedrooms and three bathrooms in just 1,500 square feet, thanks to a remade attic with two of those bedrooms (and one nifty office space).

Elsewhere, find sliding doors of reclaimed wood, a master bedroom called “tranquil,” a flexible space for a den or office at the back of the property, and a stone patio in the deep yard—what’s described as “idyllic” overall.

The asking price, as listed with Keller Williams Realty, is $425,000.

Proximity to the village, leafy Brownwood Park, and Interstate 20—a gateway to “all of intown Atlanta!”—are cited as selling points.

For its size, it’s the cheapest single-family option in the neighborhood right now by $25,000 or more, though others are more centrally located, with easy EAV walkability.
