622 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE
In Old Fourth Ward, one of Atlanta’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, just a half mile from Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthplace, sits this enchanting two-story home, with its elegant and traditional yellow clapboard siding. The location is great – just a block from the Atlanta Beltline trail system and an easy walk to Ponce City Market and Krog District. But the inside of your new home is special, too.
Walk across the front porch and through this traditional home’s front door – with its big panes and transom windows above to let in lots of natural light – and you’ll be greeted by lovely hardwood floors flowing across a comfortable living and dining area. The space is finished with attractive built-in shelving. The adjacent kitchen is an efficient galley design and finished with fine details like granite counters, stainless appliances, and a surprising amount of cabinet space. Also on the main level is a half-bath and a convenient closet for storage, and there’s a back door leading to a tranquil community courtyard that serves as a great place for some fresh air with your morning coffee. Upstairs, find the home’s two bedrooms, each boasting copious natural night and a personal closet with built-in shelving. The two share a generous bathroom with a combination tub and shower that’s finished with clean, white tile. A linen closet here offers a washer and dryer.
Ready for adventure in the city? Just hop out the front door, step past the manicured raised bed to the sidewalk, and hoof it to a great time out. You’ll find Old Fourth Ward a great hub for foodies and shoppers. Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall, Delbar, Highland Bakery, and Kevin Rathbun Steak are all just a block away. Not much further, find the MLK National Historic Park and the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame. Hang out in all the shops inside Ponce City Market – a vast, 1920s Sears Roebuck building that’s been repurposed for small retail shops. Or strap on your bike helmet and hit the Beltline, offering you 22 miles of paths through the city.
