This week is Micro Week at Curbed, where we explore all things little the big city has to offer. While Atlanta is typically at the top of the list when it comes to the sheer size of homes, there is a growing segment of the population that wants to live every week like it's Micro Week. For those looking for small Atlanta digs, a handful of sub-500-square-foot condos do exist, and the distribution across neighborhoods of the city is surprising. Here's proof that owning for $85,000 in Buckhead is a real thing.Read More
Mapped: the five smallest condos for sale in Atlanta
Atlantans may love big living, but a few options on the local market are for those who crave a very small place
1. 20 Marietta Street, Unit 9C
Atlanta, GA 30303
The largest of the five smallest units for sale in Atlanta, this "massive" 448-square-foot condo is in the heart of it all at Five Points. Listed for $95,000, the unit features an upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances and marble backsplash, as well as a built in-bed and hardwood floors original to the historic building.
2. 20 Marietta Street, Unit 12D
Atlanta, GA 30303
Also located in the Metropolitan at Five Points, this 12th floor studio is listed for $85,900. Slightly smaller than its neighbor — at 442 square feet — the unit boasts a big view of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Georgia Dome... though not for long.
3. 373 Moreland Avenue, Unit 205
Atlanta, GA 30307
Located at the intersection that gives Little Five Points its name, this condo — built in 1920 — features a ton of character. But, the 442-square-foot space went through a massive overhaul in 2006, and now includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and hardwoods, all for $94,900.
4. 960 Saint Charles Avenue, Unit 9
Atlanta, GA 30306
Coming in at number two, with a diminutive 420 square feet, this light-filled Virginia-Highland unit is just blocks from the Beltline. Despite the tight space, the unit is listed for $119,900, likely due to its proximity to hot places like Ponce City Market and Piedmont Park.
5. 374 East Paces Ferry Road, Unit 408
Atlanta, GA 30305
Atlanta's smallest unit currently on the market, this compact studio fits a lot of living in 410 square feet. With a Murphy bed, a walk-in closet, and a bright pink bathroom, this Buckhead unit offers a lot for just $84,900.
