Morningside, Georgia Apartments
As one of Atlanta's ITP (inside the perimeter) historic neighborhoods, Morningside has homes that are in high demand, and their prices reflect that. But if you've decided that Morningside is the place for your new address, you will find some of Atlanta's most beautiful homes here, along tree-lined streets near a trendy collection of shops, pubs and restaurants. The area is sometimes called Morningside/Lenox Park, because the proximity of the two neighborhood and similar styles of homes create a seamless joining of the two areas.
Located on the northern edge of downtown, flanked by Druid Hills and Ansley, Morningside is a picturesque, quaint community graced with parks and more than 50 acres owned by nature preserves, helping maintain the neighborhood's wooded feel. The community was developed in the early 20th Century, and the majority of homes are Craftsman bungalows, English Tudor-style homes or built in a Four-Square style. You can occasionally find new construction, including ultra-modern mansions or Tudor- and Craftsman-style houses.
Because this area has been popular with homebuyers for many years, a good many houses in the Morningside neighborhood have been renovated. While construction maintains the home's character, you'll find a lot of modern conveniences that have been added over the years, including spacious garages, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchens and master bedroom suites. A home inspection will give you the peace of mind knowing that any repairs and renovations done to a home you are looking to purchase have been done properly. Prices for single-family homes can range from about $350,000 to more than $1 million, with the majority of homes listed for around $500,000 to $750,000. Because the neighborhood is relatively stable, you won't often find a foreclosure or short sale.
If you're looking for a condo specifically in Morningside, you're likely to have a difficult time. This neighborhood is composed of mostly single-family homes, and the few condominium properties in Morningside have just an occasional unit for sale. If you do find a condo in Morningside, you can expect to pay around $200,000 or more for a two-bedroom unit, a little less for a one-bedroom unit. You may want to look at Midtown, which is just a few minutes away but still provides great access to all of downtown's amenities. The same holds true for apartments, although there are a few complexes in Lenox Park and Ansley. Rents range from around $700 per month for a one-bedroom to more than $3,000 for a three-bedroom unit, depending on amenities.
