Christmas - have you made some progress in the past 2 weeks?
I'm a 12 year veteran Intown neighbor and I've been up and down your target area with clients. Hank's advice is sound - condo, loft or townhome living is much better suited for your budget and your general criteria.
I like Ormond - not my favorite street in GP/Sunmmerhill but it's OK. However, at your price point it's not where I would invest.
Rtown/Ctown - same basic issues.
Ormewood - the southside of OP will meet your budget, but living between the Foxey Lady Lounge and the Pen may not meet your distinct goals.
Your price will probably not deliver what you seem to seek, but if you open up to a nice condo, loft or townhome community, then wow - I'll just name one - Candler Park Condominiums on the corner of Candler and McLendon - pool, parkside, walk to golf, walk to L5P, walk to the heart of CP...and get a 2/1 for $125K if you know how to structure an attractive offer.
I'll buy you a drink on the rooftop at Six Feet Under if you want to talk things over with The Intown Insider...
