Known for its historic architecture, live-work-play amenities, and diverse population, the thriving Virginia-Highland neighborhood of Atlanta is the perfect mix of city energy and suburban calm. Over the past few years, this neighborhood has become one of the top residential destinations in the city, with a surge of new construction to meet the growing demand. Even with this expansion, the area maintains its historic charm with a distinctive laid-back southern vibe.
By day, the neighborhood is filled with locals and tourists taking to the streets for leisurely shopping or a patio brunch, and by night, Virginia-Highland is home to some of the best bars and nightlife in Atlanta.
Coupled with a selection of beautiful bungalows and historic homes, along with its short commute to downtown, it’s no wonder that finding a home for sale in this highly coveted neighborhood is extremely hard to come by. In the past 6 months, only 55 homes were listed in this neighborhood, averaging 17 days or less before going under contract.
As expected, when homes hit the market and the opportunity arises to live in Virginia-Highland, homebuyers are quick to act on it. This newly listed, beautiful bungalow nestled in the heart of Virginia-Highland is one of those rare opportunities that likely won’t be available for long.
With its white picket fence, pristinely landscaped yard, and charming bungalow-style architecture, this move-in-ready home embodies the Americana lifestyle. Boasting 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and plenty of living space, this Virginia-Highland home is an absolute must see. Originally built in 1920, this home has been thoughtfully updated and renovated for today’s luxury lifestyle while preserving its historical authenticity.
Flaunting both a formal living and dining room, a family room with a fireplace, and an abundance of entertainment spaces both inside and out, this 2,800+ square foot bungalow offers a spaciously cozy feel reminiscent of a 1920’s home. Boasting beautiful hardwood flooring throughout, the main level also includes 2 guest suites, an office space, Owner’s Suite, breakfast nook, and kitchen. The bright and fully equipped deluxe kitchen features white inset cabinets, stone countertops, high end appliances, and an expansive butler’s pantry.
The extensive Owner’s Suite bath is well appointed with a marble double vanity, soaking tub, and double shower, with French doors open to the backyard gardens. Spend your summers grilling out and eating al fresco on the top-level deck, and your winters by the fireplace on the screened-in terrace level porch.
The best part? This exceptional on-the-market home is just a short stroll from all that Virginia-Highland has to offer and is just minutes from the rest of downtown Atlanta.
