Have your cake and eat it, too, with this three-bedroom home in the heart of Grant Park. After all, the graceful earmarks of craftsman style are here including the stately wooden columns set on brick piers surrounding the covered front porch. But none of that comes at the expense of modern touches on the inside.
And while you’re eating that cake, why not walk with it down to Grant Park, which you can access just a block away via the exciting $48 million Grant Park Gateway project nearing completion, or Zoo Atlanta, or nearby Eastside Trail on the Atlanta BeltLine.
The house sits high on its lot offering a great view of the neighborhood from that oversized porch. Through the front door, you’ll find a large, open-concept living space with an 8-seat dining area and a modern-tiled gas fireplace enticing guests to linger during cool winter evenings. An open kitchen makes great use of space with a large quartz island and built-in breakfast nook for a cozy meal you can prep on stainless steel appliances. Throughout the house, both upstairs and down, you’ll find gorgeous hardwood floors, modern light fixtures, and updated tile. The upper level is a master suite, including an en-suite bath with fresh finishes. The home’s other two bedrooms share a similarly modernized bath, and one bedroom features its own fireplace.
The sights and sounds of historic Grant Park await you down the street, with gastropubs and wine bars, all-day breakfast eateries, coffeehouses, independent shops and the Grant Park Farmers Market. The King Memorial Marta station is a bike ride from your front door — or access the beltline just 2 bocks down the street. You can also enjoy time at frequent festivals and events without ever starting your car — including the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival, and music and art festivities all year long.
Assuming you want a getaway from the bustle of the city, just venture to your back yard, where you’ll find a large deck suitable for grilling or sharing a drink with friends. There’s a generous and level green space, too, and the entire back yard is enclosed with a brand- new wooden privacy fence.
