164 E Parkwood Rd
Put a couple of comfortable chairs behind the stately columns on this Parkwood house and be prepared to sit a while, watching the wildlife of the neighborhood’s namesake park just across from your porch, so close you can hear the babbling of Peavine Creek.
It’s an unpretentious and classic brick home, with much attention to a mature front lawn designed with low-maintenance ground cover. Inside, though, find a house far grander than its curbside appearance, stretching deep into a large lot and offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a stunning attic ready for even more finished space should you ever need it.
Your portal to all that is through a large foyer from where you can see many of the common spaces – the formal living room and a dining room with room for 10 – and details like fresh paint and newly finished hardwood floors that the home touts. The large living roam boasts, a fireplace, and built-in bookshelves, park views through large windows, and double-door access to a large sunroom. (That sunroom has its own breathtaking views, of the private backyard, where you’ll also find a large parking pad, covered carport spaces and a shed/workroom). The large, eat-in kitchen brims with cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a separate breakfast nook with extra shelving, and a separate pantry. Take a peek out the kitchen window and you’ll see a lovely backyard patio and a lush garden, perhaps full of herbs for adding a flourish to the night’s dinner.
The master bedroom is generously apportioned, with two walk-in closets and its own views of Parkwood Park. A door in the master leads to a hall bath that includes a combination tub and shower combo with a glass brick shower wall for lots of natural light. Two additional bedrooms in this wing of the house share a full Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The bedroom hallway hosts a large linen closet and a door to a stairwell offering easy, ladder-free access to a surprising attic space that is unfinished but an enticing expansion, with several windows offering natural light upstairs.
The home’s lower level includes the fourth bedroom, with a full wall of closet space and a private bath and standing shower; in all, a perfect space for guests, in-laws, or teens seeking a little more privacy than younger children – or easily adapted to gym, home office, or game room if you don’t need a fourth bedroom. There’s also a spacious laundry room loaded with built-in storage, and two large utility closets.
Of course, with that front-door view of Parkwood, you’ll never forget the many natural amenities so close by, including a short walk to downtown Decatur, Candler Park, Fernbank, Little Five Points and all the great food, shopping and recreation offerings that come with Decatur living.
