We’ve all been to dinner parties where we spend most of the time in the kitchen. Well, here’s a three-bedroom, two-bath designer home in East Lake Terrace that feels like it’s built around the show stopping gourmet kitchen. There’s the striking island in the middle of the space, topped and sided with dramatic dark veins of Calacatta-style quartz, with a sink on top, a dishwasher and storage on one side, and a breakfast bar on the other – in a space lit by three elegant pendant lights. There are the striking stainless steel appliances, including niche built-ins like a second oven and a wine chiller. There’s the sweeping view of the rest of the home’s open-plan spaces: the living area with a triptych of picture windows and cathedral ceilings, and an adjacent dining area, all floored with lovely oak flooring.
The luxuries don’t stop there. The master bedroom suite features his-and-her closets and, through a barn-style door with glass panels, an enviable bathroom with marble floor and walls, double vanity, an enormous soaking tub with a vessel waterfall faucet, and separate shower with built-in stone seat and three-way shower system.
Set the climate and lighting just how you like it for those dinner parties with a Nest thermostat and LED lighting with dimmers. And don’t worry, the bathroom they’ll see is exquisite too, with tiled floors, rich, gray subway tiles walls, and built-in shower niches.
Outside the home, there’s a cozy rocking-chair front porch and a larger deck out back, tucked behind a fence that surrounds the large back yard. In such a quiet neighborhood, you may even forget you’re so close to the comforts of the city, with the home centrally located between East Lake Golf Club to the north and Flat Shoals Road to the south. If it’s Thursday, plan to stop at the local farmers market for something fresh to turn into a great meal. But Candler Road is just a mile and a half away, so when you’re in the mood to grab something instead of cooking you can make a run to a fine local eatery, including flavorful Caribbean from Calabash Alley or a guilty-pleasure breakfast or lunch from Gutbusters. The East Lake Marta station is near at hand, too, as is all of Little Five Points and Downtown Decatur.
