225 Chelsea Drive
This gorgeous 3-bedroom brick home features all the charm of bygone days with the quality and comforts you expect from a modern house. And those charms are on full display from the curb of this quiet, tree-lined street in Chelsea Heights. It sits unassumingly atop a terraced and stunningly landscaped front lawn, and tucked beside it, at the end of a private driveway, you’ll spy a fully finished carriage house and garage. You’d never guess from the curb that the house and cottage combined offers 4 bedrooms and 3 baths.
An arched dormer, adorned with a lantern-style pendant light, beckons you through the front door. Inside, you’ll be rewarded with stunning detailing, from the living room’s wood-burning fireplace, to the hardwood floor throughout – and from the extensive crown molding along the ceilings to glass knobs on the doors. Outdoor lovers are sure to spy the sun room from here, covered in windows and offering direct access to the back yard. It’s one of several nods to the outdoor living that Chelsea Heights residences embrace.
Meander to the kitchen through a dining space complemented with built-in storage for your fine china and other hosting accouterments. Connecting the dining room to the kitchen is a breakfast bar, and the kitchen is bedecked with marble countertops, copious cabinet space, and a collection of high-end stainless steel appliances that includes a wine chiller.
Down the hall you’ll find the home’s three bedrooms. A hall bathroom serves two of the bedrooms as well as guests visiting for a dinner party or an afternoon in the sun room. The charming master bedroom includes two closets and elegant glass french doors that lead to a large and private en-suite bathroom, fully apportioned with double vanity, a walk-in glass shower, a private water closet, and its own large walk-in closet.
Storage is always a premium in traditional homes, so you’ll be thrilled to find two more closets for storage and partial basement and attic space, each with stairs for even more storage. Throughout, the walls are covered with a new coat of crisp, neutral paint, and the roof is just three years old. There is also a screened back porch, accessible from the master suite or the back yard that boasts a stone fireplace to cozy up to in the winter.
But the most exciting bonus space here is the large 2-story carriage house. The first floor includes a one-car garage, a workout studio, a storage space and a full bathroom with glass shower and tile. Upstairs is a large open area, boasting a high, vaulted ceiling and finished with large windows and built-in cabinets, ready for use as a home office or guests suite.
All this is in charming, walkable Chelsea Heights, just a block from Hidden Cove Park and amenities like Fernbank Museum, the Druid Hills Golf Club, Emory Village, and Glenlake Park are not much farther.
