estled between the popular neighborhoods of Kirkwood, Little Five Points and Candler Park, Edgewood has, for the most part, gone undiscovered. A wave of new residents and home renovations is causing Atlantans to take notice.
Like its neighbors, Edgewood is filled with Craftsman-style bungalows and Victorian homes, as well as a mix of brick and wood panel homes. Home sales in the area have ranged from about $100,000 to $150,000. New listings in the area quote prices of $130,000, $169,900 and $289,000.
Edgewood’s greatest asset is its location. The neighborhood encompasses the area between Moreland Avenue and Kirkwood, and from I-20 to Candler Park.
“We’re less than one mile from I-20, the shops of Virginia-Highland, Candler Park and Little Five Points, and we’re very close to downtown,” said resident Kristal Manning.
Still not entirely gentrified, Kirkwood is a fascinating hodgepodge of restored two-story homes, old rooming houses, and quaint bungalows. The downtown retail district is slowly blossoming, but most amenities are only a short drive away, and the neighborhood has plenty of park space and bike trails. The active Kirkwood Neighbors’ Organization website adds to the feeling of community.
