It might lack the turrets, gingerbread, and overall Victorian wow-factor of other Grant Park homes from the 1800s, but this Craftsman bungalow is still inimitably detailed and relatively ancient by Atlanta standards.
Built in 1889, the wood-sided, throughly updated Oakland Avenue dwelling is considered to be among Grant Park’s oldest standing homes, per its marketers.
Find it about two blocks northwest of the neighborhood’s eponymous park, near Interstate 20, toting a 73 “Very Walkable” Walk Score.
With properties of this vintage in this neighborhood—especially with the requisite TLC so readily apparent—the period details (molding, fireplaces, pocket doors, original heart-pine floors) are to be expected.
Pleasant surprises begin at the front door (hand-carved, also original) and continue to the sprawling rooftop deck, which is said to have skyline views.
The square footage is pegged at 2,561 square feet, to include the custom, extremely angular former attic spaces.
The backyard has one social option after the next, from a dining deck to the fire pit and down to a pavilion that’s been fashioned from a former garage. That arrangement, per listings, means that parking is relegated to the street.
The property listed this week with Keller Knapp Realty for $737,000.
