SHERWOOD FOREST— Call it the perfect mix of New England/New South. We took a look at a $1.495M shingled beauty with views of the Ansley Golf Course that hit all the right notes, although the blue kitchen might have been questionable. For some reason it was strangely reminiscent of Steve Martin movies from the '90s...

INMAN PARK— Most people who pass this Edgewood Avenue building probably don't realize it's a million dollar residence, but maybe that's not such a bad thing from a security perspective. The coolest feature: an interior courtyard around which all the rooms rotate. It's a foreclosure, so some maintenance is in order, namely ridding the pool of its fluorescent green look.

GLENWOOD PARK— The interwebs were abuzz this week with revived rumors that Walmart could be setting up shop right next to New Urbanism oasis Glenwood Park. While that hasn't been specifically confirmed, renderings were released of what the stores fronting Glenwood Avenue might look like. Don't expect this one to go down without plenty of heated community meetings.

CITYWIDE— We got all philosophical for a moment considering what it means for a place to be considered "authentic." With plenty of recent development around Atlanta - especially that of the live/work/play variety - criticized as plastic and/or contrived, it's a valid question. Nothing like a little mental debate!

EAST ATLANTA— Although it represents a tiny slice of the market, the appetite for contemporary homes in Atlanta seems to be growing. Call it the Dwell effect. This funky mod pad a couple of miles from the East Atlanta Village is just what the doctor ordered for buyers seeking something a little more unique.
