Sale of the Week: Inman Park Victorian

A dozen Inman Park residents are opening up their homes and gardens for the neighborhood’s 39th Annual Spring Festival and Tour of Homes on Friday through Sunday.

There’s a wonderful diversity of residences on the tour, from the renovated Jacobean Revival home built in 1899 for Ernest and Emily Woodruff  to The Grinnell Lofts.

Like other popular neighborhoods, when homes come on the market in Inman Park, the buyers often are existing residents, says Brian Bishop, an agent with Morris & Raper Intown.

His Inman Park listing at 197 Elizabeth St., priced for $999,999, caught our attention this week, with it slate roof, limestone foundation and wraparound porch that fits into the neighborhood setting.

The five-bedroom, 2 ½-bath home dates to 1910, but has only had three families as its residents, enjoying the home’s features such as stained glass in the foyer and custom built-in oak cabinets in the dining room.
