Iconic Inman Park Historic Estate Can Be Yours for Less Than $2M

167 elizabeth st$1,975,000, to be exact, is the ask for the house Joel Hurt built for him and his family in the heart of Atlanta’s first suburb back in 1904.

Hurt connected his planned community to the downtown business district with Atlanta’s first electric streetcar line running east and west on Edgewood Avenue. Here is how the Atlanta Journal Constitution described Inman Park back in 1896:

High up above the city, where the purest breezes and the brightest sunshine drove away the germs of disease, and where nature had lavished her best gifts, the gentlemen who conceived the thought of Inman Park found the locality above all others which they desired. It was to be a place of homes, of pretty homes, green lawns, and desirable inhabitants. And all save those who would make desirable residents have been excluded…It’s the prettiest, highest, healthiest and most desirable locality I ever saw. Everybody is friendly and neighborly…We have three (street)car lines and frequent schedules.

A bit hyperbolic, exclusionary, and non-pc for our times, to be sure. But Inman Park has weathered it’s period of urban flight and decay and today is a cultural quilt of diverse ethnicities within a vibrant community of stately historic homes, parks, theaters, shops, restaurants, and schools. The BeltLine Eastside Trail and Inman Park/Reynoldstown MARTA station are a short stroll or bike ride away and connected by safe, tree-lined streets and bike trails.

That this Grand Dame’s first availability in over a quarter of a century comes in concert with the return of streetcars running on Edgewood Avenue is a thing of poetic beauty, if you ask us. Inman Park has been called a Small Town in a Downtown, but the features of this home are anything but small:

  • Over 6,000 sq.ft. of living space with tiger oak woodwork, oak & heartpine floors, 10+ft. ceilings
  • Built-ins include buffet, bookcases, file drawers, cabinets, window seat
  • Elevator, his-and-her dressing rooms, huge bedrooms, front & back stairs, large kitchen w/pantry
  • Almost 1 ac. fenced yard, in-ground pool, 2 BR, 2.5 BA rented carriage house, gardens
