New, 36 comments

Offering as many outdoor hangouts as bedrooms, it’s one of a dozen Rtown Lane homes

Located at what could be called the center of Reynoldstown, Rtown Lane was once described by commenters on these pages as “mill village chic,” or as architects Abode have put it, a community designed for “close but comfortable interactions.”

Hard to believe, perhaps, but the dozen homes of Rtown Lane started coming online about five years ago, as hoopla for a southward extension of the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, wending from Old Fourth Ward into Reynoldstown, was ramping up.

Now, this latest resale—listed for $539,900 in recent days with Keller Williams, Anna K Intown Real Estate Services—is aiming to capitalize on its block-away Beltline proximity, contemporary chicness, and outdoor spaces well-suited for extroverts.

Minimalistic porches nod to the neighborhood’s history of steel production.

Located on Kirkwood Avenue, just up the street from where Stein Steel has floated prime Beltline acreage for sale, the relatively narrow townhome offers three bedrooms and what the listing describes as “high-quality finishes and a location that can’t be beat.”

The community’s distinctive look, like the exteriors, appears to be weathering the ravages of time and Atlanta summer’s quite well, echoing the style of Abode properties throughout the neighborhood, including the Mattie Branch project a few blocks away.

Moving inside, you’ll find hardwood floors throughout these 1,800 square feet across two levels, with two and a half bathrooms.

Two elevated deck spaces off the back lend privacy (for introverts) that the open front porch lacks. Below that, there’s carport parking where two MINI Coopers might comfortably fit

Records indicate it has traded once before—for $367,400 in December 2015, the year Rtown Lane was built.
