513 Boulevard SE
The white-picket fence might make this look like the house of the typical American dream, but this Grant Park home offers so much more, including three floors of comfort and a big surprise downstairs.
It’s a quality home, with all the treatments you expect in a neighborhood lined with Victorian and Craftsman construction: Hardwood floors, modern fixtures and detailing, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, a separate laundry room, a rocking-chair front porch for three-season living.
But it’s the extra touches that really set this place apart. The main living space is designed with an airy feel – from an open dining area that can seat up to 10 for large dinner parties, to the big, open kitchen that boasts granite counters, plenty of cabinets and a breakfast bar for smaller gatherings or quicker meals. A traditional living room welcomes and warms with a cozy gas fireplace. For easy guest access, there’s a half-bath on the main floor, finished in marble. Some of the home’s other special touches include an expansive back deck, accessed via the kitchen, that offers views of a backyard that yawns toward nearby Grant Park, all bounded with a privacy fence. There’s also private parking in back, which you pull into through a shared alleyway.
Mosey upstairs to find the master suite, with two large closets and an impressively large private bath, complete with marble floors, two vanities, and both walk-in shower and soaking tub. Finishing out the top level are two secondary bedrooms, which share a lovely, marble-finished bathroom with combination tub and shower.
Through interior steps or from a backyard entrance off the patio, you can find this house’s biggest treat: An enormous hardwood floor bonus space featuring three large rooms, plus storage, and a full bathroom (making 3½ baths in all!) with walk-in shower. Want a family room, a media room, a home office, a guest sweet, or a private space for that teenager growing antsy to spread out? This floor can effortlessly serve any combination.
Stretch your legs and walk to historic Grant Park, where the rec center and tennis courts are literally just one block west, and its many trails, the pavilion, splash fountain, and The Atlanta Zoo aren’t much further. The Grant Park Farmers Market, the King Memorial Marta station, and the Atlanta Beltline are all an easy walk or bike ride away, too.
