Sure, looks can be deceiving, but not with this split-level charmer, perched quietly on a hill in a tranquil neighborhood near Fernbank. It’s just as charming, inside and out, as it appears from the street, nestled among other ranch and split-level homes.
Hop up the front steps and enter into a large great room – the start of an open-concept space stretching into living room, dining room, and kitchen. Hang your jacket in the handy coat closet and peer through the large picture window offering unbroken, captivating views of the tree-lined street. You’re apt to see neighbors walking and kids on bikes, perhaps en route to nearby Heaton or Hidden Cove parks. Relax with a book from the copious built-in shelves surrounding the gas fireplace, sidling up to the window for natural light or next to the fireplace in the winter. Across the open floor, the roomy dining area can seat as many as eight and also offers outdoor views, with three large windows showcasing the manicured, private back yard. Rounding out the main level, the kitchen boasts a spacious island with breakfast bar that can seat four for a quick, casual meal. The kitchen is loaded with stained, natural wood cabinets and finished with stainless steel appliances and granite counters.
The house features four bedrooms and three baths in all, with a flexible bonus space. The main floor and upper level is covered in light-toned, gleaming hardwood. The lower level features tile and comfortable carpeting. The home is freshly painted and boasts touches of modern updates throughout.
Three spacious bedrooms are upstairs, each with substantial closets. Among them, the master includes a private bath with modern tile and glass shower. The other two upstairs bedrooms share a hall bath with a combination tub and shower.
Downstairs, find a very large bedroom with built-in shelving, copious closet space, and enough room to use an in-law suite (There’s even a side-entrance to the home leading directly to the lower level). Elsewhere there’s a full bathroom with a walk-in shower and pedestal sink. And the possibilities are limitless for the large bonus space, currently designed as an office but easily repurposed for a home gym or anything you conjure.
Outside, the private back yard is level and green, and a stone patio features direct access to the house via a side door. There’s a built-in grill, ready to do it’s job on some burgers, ribeyes, or veggie skewers for a tasty meal before a stroll through the neighborhood or jaunt to the many amenities on nearby Decatur Road.
