It’s small wonder that Edgewood has been exploding in popularity these last few years. The revived early-centuries that line quiet, tree-lined streets lend a quintessentially Atlantan ‘established-small-neighborhood’ vibe; still, as is the case where Memorial meets Moreland, centrality is key, with residents finding no shortage of nearby restaurants, shopping, entertainment options, easy access to the Beltline, and just about the quickest commute you’re likely to find ITP. In other words, the same qualities that made Candler Park all the rage a couple decades ago. Take 96 Dahlgren Street, for example — a two-bed/one-bath bungalow with inviting southern front porch appeal, and situated just far enough from the main thoroughfares so traffic noise isn’t an issue. The renovations here have been lovingly implemented, with keen attention to evolving aesthetics: original hardwood floors line the home (seriously, check out those floors); the efficient, stone-topped kitchen lends plenty of space to team up at dinnertime; the bedroom count doesn’t include an additional bonus room that is likely to find its next incarnation as a dedicated home office (or walk in close if that’s your thing); that cool back deck that’s totally trellis ready; and the yard — privacy fenced, solidly big, and a blank-enough slate to let the imagination go a little nuts. We have a pretty good idea of who is going to end up with the keys to 96 Dahlgren Street: Maybe someone who’s ready to scale up from condo living for something a bit more intimate and authentic — especially now that the puppy is a grown-up real dog who loves to run. Either way, if you're a ready-to-act buyer, you’ll want to call your agent right away because contrary to what you might think prices haven’t peaked, and securing a move in ready single family home, in this location, and at this price, will soon be an impossible task.
