120 Oakland St.
One of the best things about Downtown Decatur is the ambiance and amenities the city has to offer — critically renowned restaurants and indie shops, the parks, the friendly families. This stunning 3/2.5 Tudor style home knows it and shows it, with three lovely outdoor spaces to soak in the neighborhood’s quiet charm, including one adjacent to the front door, perfect for catching up with your neighbors.
The home’s interior space will wow as well. Imagine entering the front door and seeing, just through a grand set of French doors, a warm, roaring fire beckoning — the orange glow reflected on the high, vaulted ceilings of a large room well-suited for entertaining. From that space, views abound, be they to the outside, through large windows, or to the second-story landing above. Heading to the kitchen for a snack or a drink, you’ll see the half bath and may not even realize you’ve passed cleverly hidden closets for storage and the washer and dryer. The hall spills into a bright kitchen/dining area with gleaming marble counters surrounding stainless steel appliances, including a built-in convection oven, a built-in microwave and a gas range with a hood that plunges past the room’s exposed beams, through a vaulted ceiling. From here you can enter the second of those outdoor spaces, to a peaceful courtyard bounded by a metal-and-wood privacy fence. A two-car garage, adjacent to the kitchen, makes moving groceries from car to counter effortless — assuming you didn’t walk to the Decatur Farmers Market to stock your shelves.
The master bedroom also shares a view of the private courtyard, and a custom-built walk-in closet is supplemented with hall closets for plenty of storage. There’s an en-suite bathroom with floor-to-ceiling tile and a large travertine walk-in shower featuring both rain shower and side shower and beautiful wall-mounted vanity. The other two spacious bedrooms are upstairs. The mirror-image rooms each have large windows and a walk-in closet, and they share a Jack and Jill bath.
And assuming you ever want to leave the cozy home’s amenities, you can still entertain from that third outdoor space: A fenced, hardscaped back yard with a large storage shed — and a firepit beckoning to family or friends for a little fellowship before taking a short walk to one of Decatur’s frequent outdoor festivals.
