Predictably, hot zones like Midtown and Old Fourth Ward experienced price hikes last year, but nowhere skyrocketed like East Atlanta’s 30316 zip code, where the Curbed Cup currently resides (coincidentally or not).
Clocking in at 2,897 square feet, the four-bedroom, three-and-1/2 bathroom offering has a few surprises: barn doors, a modern-style fireplace, wiring for sound, and a smart car-ready garage. Plus, happy shutters!
It sold at $142,000 in July and underwent a quick flip and facelift, which added a wide-open kitchen, modernized back porch, and a surprisingly luxe master suite. There’s a single-slot garage (but ample driveway for parking) and one giant backyard.
Walkability is on the rise in intown Atlanta neighborhoods, which is great. But the increase in pedestrians is also leading to an increase in pedestrian-vehicle conflicts. Now, the city and state are looking at improving crossings around Atlanta.
By and large, the existing stock of tiny houses in Atlanta is what other cities call, um, houses. Traditionally, Atlantans have been prone to shiver at the thought of single-family square footages south of 1,500, but times are changing.
In this era of bidding wars and limited housing supply around Atlanta, it’s not uncommon for new homes to sell before they have a chance to publicly list. Or before the foundations have even dried. For example, this place in the EAV.
Highlights include marble countertops and a rare finished basement in this price range, which has a full bathroom and another room that can be pretty much anything, per the listing. Garage-lovers could be disheartened here, however.
A study in high, slanted ceilings, it’s the kind of place where neon-green doors and whacky pendant lights seem right at home. With just three bedrooms and two and 1/2 bathrooms, one would guess the rooms are as large as they appear.
What seems cozily traditional from the street becomes "industrial contemporary chic" on the inside, with its matte-black fixtures (that’s different), somewhat daring lighting choices, modern railings, and dark tile galore. It’s a few blocks from EAV.
Judging by the murals and other artwork inside, it seems like the owner of this four bedroom, two bathroom ranch likely popped a cork — or two thousand — in this 2,006 square-foot East Atlanta home, which was built in 1953. It's listed for $340,000.
