A cozy house doesn’t mean cramped quarters, especially in this two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow, tucked back on a large lot, off a quiet street near East Atlanta Village.
Outdoor lovers will relish in a large lot, with generous front, back and side yards to play or to plan gardens in. Enjoy the view of that spacious front yard from the large living room’s double windows, or maybe from a chair on the charming little front porch. And your neighbors get to enjoy all your home’s Craftsman curb appeal, from the shake shingles above the gabled porch to the board-and-batten shutters trimming out the windows.
Inside the house, find crisp, neutral paint on all the walls and rich, wood floors throughout. The living room opens to an eat-in kitchen, modernized with tile floor and backsplashes, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a floating island for prep, and a great abundance of cabinet space.
The kitchen serves as a main artery for the home, offering access to the hallway to access the two oversized bedrooms, each brimming with storage space courtesy of a wall of closets. A bathroom between the bedrooms serves double duty and is trimmed out with modern details and a combination tub and shower. A convenient laundry closet is here, too, in the hall.
A back door from the kitchen leads to a large deck that’s ready for grilling and leisure outdoor time, be it a weekend brunch, a cookout-style lunch, or just drinks and company with friends after a good meal – who might be tempted to wander to the fire pit on cooler nights. The large backyard is grassy and flat, and there’s plenty of room for a puttering garden, with a storage shed already in place for your lawn equipment, tools, or your croquet or bocce set. Before going back inside, shuck your shoes in the large mudroom, which has a separate side entrance at the driveway. It’s a large room that’s easily purposed as a work-at-home office or an exercise space, and the full second bath is here, complete with standing shower and linen closet.
There’s lots to enjoy in the surrounding neighborhood, too. Wander a couple of blocks down to the unique Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse, where you can do yoga with llamas or where out-of-town guests might enjoy a night or two in a luxury treehouse amid a bamboo forest. Ride your bike or walk to Brownwood Park Recreation Center, or go just a mile-and-and-half up Flat Shoals to the heart of East Atlanta Village, where you’ll find a dense cluster of gastropubs and restaurants, a donut shop, coffeehouses, Thai food, and more, for any urban adventures you might seek before heading back home to Craftsman comfort.
