Priced to Sell @ $550,000

MLS #: 5578922

Located in the Historic Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta, 254 Norwood Avenue is a 6 bedroom 4 bath neo-craftsman bungalow built in 2001. It sits on a private lot and includes additional “bonus space” on the 2nd level. The galley-style kitchen showcases solid granite counters, a stainless appliance package and wood cabinetry. The living room features a fireplace, soaring 10ft+ ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors throughout the common areas. Upstairs you'll find a master suite with private master bath, large walk-in closet and plush wall-to-wall carpet. There’s a wood entertainment deck off the kitchen and a fully fenced backyard. Sparkling improvements have been made such as repainting the interior and adding the fence, custom stone patio and firepit seating area outside. Take a leisurely stroll to Kirkwood Village for Sunday brunch at Le Petite Marche or cut the commute with quick access to I-20, DeKalb Avenue and the I75/I85 connector.

Come for a visit, and you will quickly understand why “SIZE” does matter. Built in 2001, and expanded in 2010, the house and the soaring 10ft ceiling giving the space a grand, open feel. The galley style kitchen is about 20% bigger than what you'll find in comparable homes with stainless steel appliances, wood cabinets, granite counter tops and a breakfast seating area. Through the years many have dreamed of living in this part of town only to be frustrated with the older designs. Here, the 3 key rooms - the kitchen, the living room, and the dining room - totally work. It is worth the trip just to see the space. True craftsman architectural features such as crown molding, rocking chair front porch and an open floor plan make this house feel contemporary and comfortable at the same time.

And if there is a practical side of your personality that must be satisfied before making a financial decision, consider these facts. Ever heard the wisdom of owning a home surrounded by more expensive houses? Know this-- recent sales on this northern side of the neighborhood have gone for price per foot prices as high as $214. This 6 bedroom home priced at $196 per square foot, is comfortably below that number.

Three attributes make this home appealing. One is the close-in Kirkwood location. The neighborhood is desirable, but most houses are dated. This one, however, was built for modern living, and it has one final make-you-swoon benefit: in 2010 the owners expanded the 2nd story adding a true master suite with spa-like master bathroom and 2 additional guest bedrooms.

If you enjoy cooking, all the key components are here. Gas cooking? Check. Granite counters? Check. Galley style work stations where you can chop and mix ingredients? Yes. Try this. Count the number of kitchen cabinets and drawers where you live now. Compare them to the storage here--twenty-seven cabinets and drawers. Live here, and you will have a cooking space where you can organize holiday dishes, oversized pots, bread makers and tablecloths.


The overall design includes an appealing layout. For example, there are three first-floor guest rooms, and 2 full baths in case you have older relatives who will visit but cannot climb stairs. The master suite and 2 additional bedrooms are upstairs. And storage won’t be a problem here — there’s closet space to spare.

Well priced given what is offered here. The price is $569,900 - at least $30,000 less than what you would pay for similar new construction.

254 Norwood Avenue is a rare two-story residence. The back yard is smaller than some, but it overlooks an oasis of scenery. The in-place gardens are lush and colorful. This tree-lined Avenue of Historic Kirkwood has no through traffic--ideal for taking a walk with your sweetie on pleasant evenings. You could not get a better design for your long-term use, perfect for a growing family. The friendly price is well under what you'd pay for newly built, similar square footage.
