106 Missionary Court, Decatur, GA 30030
You’re not showy. You’re active, but you also like your peace and quiet. Maybe you like to jog in the morning and walk to dinner. You prefer a short, quiet street to a thoroughfare any day of the week. You favor quality and attention to details without pretension.
And maybe you like just a little bit of a surprise.
This charming craftsman-influenced brick home in Winnona Park is up your alley — or your quiet and friendly dead-end street, in this case. What may look like a small ranch-style house from the beautifully landscaped front yard, features a generous addition in back nearly doubling its size. You’d never guess it’s a 3-bedroom — with an oversized master suite featuring double glass doors leading to a screened back patio. You’ll find painstaking attention to quality throughout, from hardwood floors underfoot to modern light fixtures overhead.
The house is full of comfortable places, including a sunroom perfect for a playroom or home office. Adjacent is the formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace. Through there is a massive kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, large double sink, copious cabinet and pantry space, and a large breakfast bar. Off the kitchen is a large combination family room and dining room that can effortlessly accommodate at least eight. Sliding glass doors open to the back patio which features skylights and is prewired for a large television. Yep, you can be grilling in the fenced backyard and not miss a single play of the game.
The master bedroom sports a giant walk-in closet with custom shelving, and an en-suite bath with quartz vanity (with extra storage) and a modern glass shower with a high-end shower fixture. The two other bedrooms share a hall bathroom with a tub-and-shower combo. A pocket door outside the master keeps the laundry room, complete with utility sink, out of sight and the noise to a minimum.
The house has one more surprise in store: From its quiet neighborhood, you’d never guess how close you are to many of Decatur’s amenities. Walk to eight area parks, pools, tennis courts, and dog parks. Dine at one of literally dozens of restaurants with widely varying cuisines that have drawn raves from Southern Living and other media. Catch Marta to get around town without your car. Stroll to the farmers market for groceries, visit the butterfly garden and fish pond, or shop at one of the other 200-plus independent stores, shops, pubs, and galleries.
Just like this house, the Winnona Park neighborhood has a lot going on behind its quiet exterior.
