Under a Million in Midtown
Take a look at this historic four-bedroom, four-bath traditional home near Atlanta's Piedmont Park.
There are so many things to love about Midtown and it just keeps getting better. Located on the border of downtown Atlanta it is, just as its name implies, located in the middle of all the action. A cultural hub, it is home to the Woodruff Arts Center, the High Museum of Art, the 14th Street Playhouse, the Center for Puppetry Arts, movie theaters, concert venues such as Center Stage and lots of great restaurants like South City Kitchen, Empire State South and newcomer the Spence. People from all over the city come to enjoy Piedmont Park with its year-long festivals, seasonal farmers market, dog park, tennis courts and new swimming facilities.

Midtown is one of the most walkable communities in the city and takes advantage of MARTA, which enjoys direct access to Hartsfield-Jackson International Atlanta Airport. There is little need for a car, and it is one of the city’s more bike-friendly areas with dedicated lanes for the two-wheeling set.
It is also a great spot in the city where you’ll find historic homes with a rich cultural significance such as the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum, the Wimbish House and the Edward C. Peters house.
We found a beautiful Midtown home built in 1910 on the market located on one of our favorite streets, Myrtle Street. We love Myrtle Street for its consistent stretch of historic homes, meaning there are lots of Atlanta avenues in the area that are broken up by the random apartment building or high-rise.
Weighing in at close to 4,000 square feet, this lovely historic home has four bedrooms, four baths, a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, a formal dining room and lovely original details such a stained and lead glass. We especially like the generous front porch, screened back porch and the charming patio, all three great for entertaining throughout most of the Atlanta year. It is currently listed at $899,900 with Atlanta Fine Homes/Sotheby’s International.
