Located on a tree-lined cul-de-sac street just blocks from Decatur Square, and tucked into the neighborhood of Village Walk, this three-sided brick home offers traditional charm and modern sophistication with numerous elegant upgrades, plentiful energy-efficient windows, and eye-catching design detail. A cheerful two-story light-filled entryway ushers you into the main floor of the residence, where you can easily imagine gatherings of friends and family with its easy flow, large living spaces, and lofty ceilings. A sitting room off the main entry is perfect for piano lessons, afternoon tea, and gatherings around a tall Christmas tree as it gleams through the room’s front windows. A pleasant half-bath is well-appointed down the hallway from the entry, ready to refresh guests. A large coat closet conceals a larger storage area for additional treasures like board games, holiday decorations, and Santa’s surprises. The oversized primary living room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows allowing sunlight to spill into the high ceilings of the main gathering spaces. Adorned with a handsome gas fireplace flanked by built-ins, the expansive living area opens onto the family breakfast space and gourmet chef’s kitchen. Light quartz countertops, a stone backsplash, white shaker cabinets, a deep kitchen pantry, newly installed stainless Jen-Air appliances, and a 6-burner gas range make this updated clean and bright open kitchen a dream for both fun-filled family meals and enjoyable entertaining.
A paned glass door seamlessly leads out onto the backyard’s paved brick patio and garden open-air living space. The wide patio stretches the length of the home, optimal for barbecues, pumpkin carving, outdoor parties, and playtime - fully fenced in with lush, thoughtfully cultivated perennial plants and mature landscaping. Back inside and adjacent to the gourmet kitchen, the formal dining room joins the main living areas and provides a lovely place to host intimate and large dinners. Each aspect of this charming and meticulously cared-for residence reveals smartly planned spaces with rich character, including plantation shutters, wainscoting, and hardwoods. Up the central stairs to the second story, you are greeted by a large landing and find two relaxing guests or children’s bedrooms with large windows, their vanities, and a shared crisp, white-tiled Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Each of these bedrooms has plenty of closet space, one with a large walk-in. The master suite’s generous size feels like a retreat from the rest of the house with coffered ceilings, two large walk-in closets, and a spa-like bathroom, complete with step-in glass shower, jetted Jacuzzi tub, two separate his and hers marble vanities, and linen closet. The home's third story reveals an incredibly flexible space that can be used as an additional bedroom, home office, or kids’ playroom. Storage abounds on each level, from its third-story walk-in storage rooms to the multiple extra-large closets on the first and second floors and the spacious two-car garage outfitted with built-ins for tools and additional sporting equipment. This home and location are ideal for families and professionals, within walking distance to Decatur’s exceptional schools, parks, recreational areas, restaurants, and a short distance to shopping, Agnes Scott, Emory, and the CDC.
