Here's your opportunity to save money, gas, and energy with this short sale opportunity in Atlanta's first LEED-certified condominium development.
Bank has approved a $156,000 short sale on this stunning 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath loft home and can close in as soon as 30 days. That's rip-roaring fast for a short sale! So I guess we could call this home acquisition-efficient, as well.
Features of the home include one-of-a-kind views that will never be blocked because of historic Oakland Cemetery; custom kitchen with granite counter tops and gorgeous cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar; large living room with floor to ceiling window with fantastic skyline view; master suite complete with spa-bath, huge walk-in closet with laundry; and walk-out to private, covered balcony. The 2nd bedroom loft space is perfect for home office or occasional company. Other features include exposed concrete ceilings, 2 car garage parking, roof-top deck, security, and an active HOA.
The entire development boasts LEED for Homes certification. Eco-friendly features of the homes include:
Operable, low-emittance, double-paned windows
Bamboo flooring in kitchen and living areas
Dual flush toilets and high performance plumbing fixtures
Energy Star appliances
High efficiency heating and cooling
On-site recycling center
Steel and concrete construction
One of the first things I noticed when I previewed the brand new project back in July, 2008 was the lack of the typical new construction smell. This was due to the use of low volatile organic compound [VOC] paints, adhesives, sealants and carpeting throughout the building. Typically, my eyes -- which are very sensitive to off-gassing of new conventional paint, glue, and carpet -- would have been burning within minutes of walking down the carpeted hallways. Improved indoor air quality is a primary benefit of LEED construction.
Owners could enjoy up to 30% in energy usage and water consumption due to the LEED certified construction and features.
Locationally, the development is a win. Aside from it's premium placement, sandwiched between Grant Park neighborhood and Oakland Cemetery, the lofts rate a good transit score of 55 and a very walkable walk score of 86. King Memorial MARTA station is a half mile walk or bike ride through one of Atlanta's most cherished and unique green spaces.
