1638 Alder Court, Atlanta GA 30317
From the curb, you’ll see the quality and simple beauty of Craftsman styling surrounding this grand, two-story home. It’s nestled unobtrusively off a quiet court. The home is a picture-perfect fit here, in Kirkwood –a vibrant and eclectic, in-town community that boasts its own post office, fire station, and public library, along with parks, festivals, and nightlife.
Though a traditional craftsman style, this is a newly built home, with all the amenities, efficiencies, and design improvements you would demand from modern construction. Just peek through those traditional 3-over-1 windows and you’ll see.
While the spacious house boasts the quality features that have proved timeless, like stunning hardwood floors, you’ll also find delightful modern fixtures and design. The house opens up to you – or your dinner guests – from the front door, with grand open-concept center space offering a clear view from the living room through the dining space and to the kitchen, all unburdened by dividing walls. That chef’s kitchen features quartz countertops swathed in task lighting and stainless steel appliances, including an above-range microwave. A long breakfast bar offers a spot for more counter space for quick-prep or a casual meal, and additional base cabinets to what’s already very generous kitchen storage space.
The first floor also includes a bedroom and full bathroom, as well as a small office or study. An elegant staircase from the living area leads you to a large second story, where you’ll find a large master suite, a master bathroom with double vanity, two additional bedrooms, and a third bathroom. All three upstairs bedrooms feature corner windows for views of charming Kirkwood, and the master features a walk-in closet. You’ll find a separate laundry room upstairs as well.
Through the home’s back door is a fenced private flat back yard that yawns to a far line of trees. A large attached back deck is ready for entertaining or quiet evening nightcap or hot chocolate.
For even more outdoor fun, put on your walking shoes and head two blocks over to Coan Park – an acclaimed greenspace with ball fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, a rec center, and even an outdoor gym. The park is just one of the many Kirkwood amenities, of course. Your new home also offers you a full slate of neighborhood events, from kid-friendly festivals to monthly porch parties, and frequent social strolls in one of the 8 area parks, and wine tastings. You’ll also gain easy access to great unique restaurants and shops. And the Edgewood-Candler Park Marta stop gives you headache-free access to the rest of Atlanta.
