Set far back from the road behind a front yard of mature trees, this graceful home in Decatur’s Clairemont-Great Lakes neighborhood looks like a small, charming brick cottage – but it unfolds to a bevy of space, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
You’ll pull off the street onto a horseshoe driveway, beneath the branches of a large oak. And, stepping inside you’ll enter a spacious family room with a cozy fireplace. There’s an adjacent dining room that’s also generously proportioned. The house is floored in gorgeous hardwood throughout, and the main level’s can’t-miss feature is the sunroom, immersed in natural light from wall-to-wall windows on three sides. This space is ready as a play room or comfortable reading area, or it can be painlessly adapted to a home office. The kitchen has been nicely updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and is filled with tasteful white cabinets. It also offers direct access to the shady and sprawling backyard, where a stone patio running the full width of the house beckons for evening or weekend lounging, grill parties, and more. Completing the main level is a bedroom and full bathroom.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms, including an owner suite designed with copious closet space and a private bath with built-in tub. But the next surprise is downstairs, where a full in-law suite awaits long-term guests, aging parents, or a teenager looking for more independence. There’s a full kitchen here, also finished with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, as well as a cozy living space, bedroom, bathroom with an easy-access shower, and even its own washer and dryer.
Of course, it being Decatur, you’ll find a lovely walkable neighborhood outside the door, with Woodlands Garden’s seven-acre preserve just a block away and Glenlake Park an easy stroll to the southeast. And all of Downtown Decatur’s unforgettable amenities – the dining, the shopping, the MARTA access – are at Decatur Square, just 1½ miles south on Clairemont.
