It may look like a house that’s stood stately on this little hill for a hundred years, and this three-bedroom traditional Craftsman features the detailing and quality construction of such a historic home, but with the benefits of a new-millennium build: an open floor plan, enormous closets, a garden tub, and more. It’s Decatur front-porch living at its finest – literally. The rocking-chair front porch that runs the full width of the house is mirrored by a private one, cooled by twin ceiling fans, that’s accessible from the master bedroom upstairs.
What the outside promises to curb-gazers, the inside delivers, all the way from polished hardwood floors to the high, coffered ceilings above. The large living room, bordered in windows, features a lovely gas fireplace. And that space spills into a comfortable formal dining room that boasts a view of a meticulously sculpted back yard. The dining space, in turn, blends into the kitchen, with granite countertops, and gleaming stainless steel appliances – including a 36-inch stove and wide refrigerator. A casual breakfast room is adjacent, and there’s a convenient half-bath on the main level too.
Upstairs is all about private living space, starting with the large master suite, featuring picture-window double doors leading to tree-top views from the private porch. There are two walk-in closets here, a richly-detailed tray ceiling, and a private bath with separate walk-in shower and garden tub. The other two bedrooms each feature double windows and expansive views of the private back yard, and they share a fully apportioned second bath.
The whole house was designed with an eye to natural light, as if to beckon you either to the back yard’s yawning multi-tiered deck – beautiful and useful, with plenty of room for an extra dining space – or out the front door to all the wonders and amenities of Oakhurst. The lucky homeowners will discover Oakhurst Market is nearby, and all the dining, shopping, and pastimes of Oakhurst Village are just two blocks away. Parents can walk young ones to Oakhurst Elementary, and schools through high school are an easy stroll or bike ride away. Need more nearby activities?: How about the McCain Library, the Bradley Observatory and its planetarium, or the Woodruff Athletic Complex’s tennis courts, swimming pools and running track.
