I know this response is coming a very long time after the initial question, but I had to comment. I love the Enclave at Grant Park. I previously worked for builder and actually trained at this community when it was initially being sold. Homes are spacious, well-constructed and in a great location. The major problem I see with the community is parking can be a bit tight, especially if you have guests. Even with that problem, this is a community where I would personally purchase. ... more

What do you know about the cutest little dirt road in North Grant Park?

Are you seeking a purchase? Don't you love the listing history?

My good friend and the IT genius behind my website, Rev. Bubba, has a rear driveway from his Bryan Street home that faces this house - you should talk to him before you think about committing to purchase. He knows everything.

I'm liking the price now - I'll bet that the bank already has offers in hand.

Don't call Donnie Henry anymore - he's moved to Austin, Texas to build in one of the healthiest real estate markets in the country.

Karen, you seem to know what you are doing. Most of us can give you lots of specific vendors to choose from.

The new Planet Green TV channel from Discovery has some fantastic "green" renovation shows, and a resourceful website. Check out the web reference...

Karen: As you may well know... this property is listed for sale in FMLS as a bank owned property. There are specific lender addendum required. The owner on record is: "Fremont Trust 2006-1". They may or may not be the actual "Seller" as third party companies are many times involved.

Not sure what the 'other' commentary is all about, but this is specific to this question and address given.

Kind Regards

This is not advice to you, as you must have a Buyer's Agent in place providing guidance and consultative advice - if you are making offers... But, in general Grant Park is very unique in that it has so many great qualities to offer it's residents! Many more improvements are in the works, from Grant Park itself, more Charter Schools wanting to open in Grant Park, more restaurants in newly multi-zone properties providing mixed use and more!

Therefore, when you go to Zillow and do an online valuation with incorrect tax information, how can anyone expect to get the right values? In addition to all the new retail ( Stella Luna Trattoria and more coming) there is a new Beltline Park called Boulevard Crossing Park which will be just South of Grant Park. This park will include a dog park, multi-use field like Piedmont Park, active use, playground and even a skate-park which my kids are excited about. Information on this new park can be found at my web-site - or - Oh, lastly see info about our Grant Park Spring Fling later this month at the link below. - Ramiro Garcia

As a Grant Park neighbor and Grant Street resident, I've never heard a concern about those lines. They are quite high up on those towers and away from any homes. If I had a concern it would be having any transformer on a regular Georgia Power pole that can be found in any neighborhood, not just Grant Park.

I believe those 50 high lines transport power from the GA Power sub-station at the end of Cherokee Ave up North - they don't actually connect to the poles providing power to the homes in this residential area.

Like I said, I live on Grant Street and am very involved in the Neighborhood and at the NPU level.

We are planning our Spring Fling in the Park later this month - see my web-site below for a link to the details - Ramiro Garcia or

Wow Lance,
Seems like you have gotten a ton of answers with lots of conflicting info. I am not a Realtor so this answer is strictly from a Grant Park resident/Architects point of view. I love Grant Park, it is family friendly and full of great neighbors. I live inside i-20 which some people do not consider as a real part...but it was part of the original property deeded and my home was built in 1905. Some time in the last century the city came through and built I-20 effectively cutting part of the neighborhood off from the rest. On the upside my part is only three blocks deep and three blocks wide and I can say that I know 80% of my neighbors by name! We had our home listed last year for 3 months but took it off the market when our son was born. I am so glad we did, I have had the opportunity to join SAHM groups and really get to know the area. This area has a boon of homes built between 1900 and 1920, lots which are in need of renovation, some that have been renovated and are move in ready and lots of bad contractor flips which need work to make right. I think most of the recent homes selling for less are the bad flips, bank owned and shells. The handful of pristine remodels have been listed and removed because we now appear over priced when we really aren't. As soon as those bad ones are off the market the prices will stabalize and those of us who wanted to sell the good remodels can. If you want to remodel and sell make sure you start the job by getting a realtor who specializes in Grant Park, not just intown and then hire an architect who has experience in historic homes. Do the job right and in a few years you should reap the rewards. As for Zwillow as some people have been quoting, they have the Grant Park Boundries wrong which makes their "Zestimates" all kinds of crazy. Good luck! If you want a 4/3.5 with off street parking give me a shout or if you need an Architect's opinion on a structure email me.
