Atlanta | $499,000
A 1900 bungalow with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.1-acre lot
This recently renovated house is in the bustling Berkeley Park neighborhood, near the West Midtown area. It is about a mile from The Works, a mixed-use development that turned industrial buildings into retail, dining and office space. Also nearby are breweries, restaurants and a recording studio, as well as several colleges and universities, including the Georgia Institute of Technology, Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College. Downtown Atlanta is about a 20-minute drive, depending on traffic.
Size: 1,268 square feet
Price per square foot: $394
Indoors: A paved path cuts through the front yard and leads to a porch with a warm red door that pops against the blue-and-white exterior of the house.
Part of the renovation involved the transformation of the foyer, which now has hexagonal-tile floors and benches along one wall. Beyond the foyer is a living room with hardwood floors, a white-painted decorative fireplace, black wainscoting and a black-painted ceiling.
The living room is open to the kitchen, which has new stainless-steel appliances and a new center island. The space is bright, thanks to a window over the sink and another in a door that opens to the back porch.
