Historic Howell Station

Knight Park-Howell Station, also known as Howell Station Historic District or Knight Park Historic District, is a Historic neighborhood in West Midtown Atlanta. Almost all buildings in the area were destroyed in the American Civil War in Sherman’s March to the Sea.

Read all about the history on their site: Howell Station Neighborhood Association .  This active neighborhood association also offers its members a “Rewards Card” to obtain discounts to many local businesses. What a way to keep the shopping locally!  *smart*

You can also see them on Facebook  meet your potential neighbors and read the latest community discussions.

I am enjoying the mixture of old and new homes, each with its own charm- and price tag! I’ve seen listings as low as $60K and as high as $325K.

1455 Lucile Ave SW Atlanta 30310

I’ve been watching the transformation of this beautiful home for a few weeks. It’s hard to believe this is also a  home I put a bid on- and was disappointed to lose. I KNEW this would be a great deal for anyone looking in-town  near the Beltline, and hoped I would have the opportunity to be apart of making someones dream come true.

From the time you step foot on the stairs to the grand entry, you know you’re in for a treat.  The spacious front porch is ready to be filled with welcoming plants and to fall in line with neighboring homes.  You are greeted by a solid wood door which opens to gleaming hardwoods.  Straight ahead behind a French door is a hall leading to Master suite, secondary bedrooms and baths. To your left is a bright  secondary room- most in our community are using this room as an office space or guest room (when needed)- some, are using this room as a “den”-(not wanting to take any attention away from their fireplace or built-in bookcase in the main livingroom.) Mines is a “catch-all” room…but it did begin as an office. To your right are beautiful picture windows facing both the front of the home and above the built-in bookcase, the side of the home.  A large masonry fireplace stands demanding “center-stage” attention in-between two built-in’s. Imagine and hear the crackle of pine come winter.   A second set of French doors open into a very spacious dining room- large enough to seat 12 or host a number of people for cocktails!  The dining-room continues with gleaming hardwoods, picture moulding, ceiling fan, and built-ins for additional storage.   My favorite is the butlers swing door opening to a Butlers Pantry and Kitchen. Who will send time in the kitchen of such a lovely home??– Well, I would- being that I have THREE kids…and what a kitchen?  Lovely granite counters, ample wood cabinets and walk-in pantry ensures cooking for my rowdy crowd is a breeze..

A spacious laundry/mud room is right off the back deck and kitchen. The deck is the width of the home and is enclosed within a private backyard.  I’m a bit jealous of the neighbors garden-but I’m sure the new owners of 1455 Lucile will NOT be like me, and this home will have a garden to admire too.

Heading back into the house through the kitchen, cutting through the dining room into the hall you can turn right and head back to the “Master suite”.  A great retreat!!  There are two walls of windows to receive great morning sun(this will help you wake up and make the most of your day), TWO closets- one walk-in (must be HERS) 🙂  a little sitting/dressing area and an enormous bathroom (the size of my sons nursery space). The master bath has double vanities and a beautiful claw foot soaking tub! I would never leave my room…. But, when you do- you can head downstairs to the daylight finished basement. The daylight basement has TWO additional rooms, plus a full bath. Make one a guest suite and the other an exercise or media space.  I would certainly make use of an exercise room on concert floors because my treadmill is killing my hardwoods.

This home is worth an in-person tour, see for yourself how this could be the next best move you make!

The “Beltway”….???

Isn’t that in Texas??

Atlanta has the BELTLINE- LINE….NOT ‘WAY’.  I wish more would  read up on it. This is going to change Atlanta, it’s changing us now and will have a great impact on our future. www.Beltline.org

When on the site- don’t forget to take the FREE guided tour of the Beltline.

Renovated and FHA Ready- 3bedrooms, 2bath home located steps away from the Beltline!  Motivated sellers can make this an easy sale and great new home for First Time Buyers.  Appliance package to be selected by buyers (with full price offers).  This 1925 Craftsman Brick Bungalow features gleaming Hardwoods, 3 Fireplaces, 2 sets of French Doors-to the office/bedroom and diningroom, breakfast bar, NEW bathrooms with bead board  paneling and custom sinks.  The home also has a private fenced backyard and a spacious deck-great for entertaining.

Historic West End and it’s neighboring community Westview, were deemed one of Atlanta’s “Hidden Gems”.  The Historic West End is a community quickly rebounding in popularity due to affordable 1920 Craftsman Bungalows very similar to those found in Grant Park and Virgina Highlands. Active residents drive the tone of this community- making it a great place to live,work, play, pray. Easily accessible and  7mintues from Downtown,  the Airport  and on MARTA (Train and Bus) makes this an ideal location to relocate to from up North.  West End of Atlanta is also the FIRST location for the Beltline!

Both neighborhoods have active associations (www.AtlantaWestEnd.com or www.WestviewAtlanta.com). Education, Public Safety and Code Enforcement issues are actively addressed here and at the Neighborhood Planning Unit level (www.NPUTAtlanta.org)

Come enjoy the many little treasures-  SPACE Restaurant/ Bar, The Grounds Coffee Shop, The Hammond House Museum, The Wrens Nest, Atlanta University Center (now building the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center), The Mall West End, Parks/Playgrounds and much more!  When you move to the Historic West End or Westview communities- you are joining a family!
