The Piedmont Perspective is New! New look, new template but the same tried and true format! I've been paying attention to your emails and hopefully, this new look makes it easier to read and respond to (especially for you MAC users). Thanks for your constructive comments and observations. Please continue to get in touch with me. I love hearing from you!
Fifteen houses are currently on the market with this week's addition of 19 York Avenue. This 1921 Piedmont Traditional is in need of MAJOR renovation and updating and offers a location near Grand and Piedmont Avenues. With 4bdrms/3.5bths, and original details throughout, this is a complete remodel. If construction and renovation ring your bells, this may be the house for you - but only if you know this road well. This is not a cosmetic fixer.
However, IF a remodel project is high on your priority list, I suggest taking another look at Mindy Scott's listing on LaSalle Avenue. This home offers greater upside potential. Although it presents a nontraditional lay out, unique floor plans often turn out to make the most interesting homes at the end of the days. Surprisingly large inside (and out) this Mediterranean is surrounded by three to four million-dollar properties. As such, you would be hard pressed to "over improve" in this coveted location. This one is worth a second (or a third) look!
