This home offers big gay dose of real estate porn

There's bedroom mod, bear flair and butch realness among gay Atlanta's homes. But this bungalow not far from East Atlanta Village offers a courtyard made for cocktailing and a twilight look you'll fall in love with.

And it's all tucked onto a street that comes drag ready: Lomita Road.

Newsy guy Jim Burress and partner Thomas Walter recently put the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home up for sale. Thanks to some eye-catching details from Inside Out Architecture, contemporary flair from the owners and stunning photos from Common Ground Real Estate, the gay-owned firm with the $250,000 listing, the home is garnering some attention.

There's cute, gay cute and just plain real estate porn. For Curbed, it's the latter.

Frankly, this is one of the most interesting properties to blip the Curbed Atlanta radar in a long time, being that it expands the realm of possibility for Atlanta's relatively small lots and modest homes.

The listing teases even more.

Convenient to EAV, East Lake and I-20, this jaw-dropping property offers incomparable style at an astonishing price. The front door opens to the open living/dining/kitchen, all over hardwoods and under a soaring cathedral ceiling. A wall of windows wraps around the interior and gives tons of natural light and forms a large, private courtyard. The master offers a spa-like bath and a loft space overlooking the courtyard. The second bedroom (currently an office), offers additional space + a beautifully finished guest bath. See this unique turnkey home before it goes!

Thankfully, there's no trace of Burress' neon wig.
