2554 Knox St NE Atlanta
You know what’s most important in life: It’s time spent with others, be it family, friends, or neighbors. And this 3-bedroom Craftsman-style brick bungalow reflects that ideal.
At its heart is a large, common living space combining a family room and dining area. From here, gaze through twin glass doors to more shared space on the back deck, or gander through a graceful archway to a formal living room for the traditionalist in all of us.
It’s an East Lake neighborhood gem, tucked unobtrusively on a historic block alongside other Craftsman homes, all adorned with mature yards and shaded by many trees. Its close proximity to three other great neighborhoods – historic Kirkwood’s downtown strip, East Atlanta Village’s walkable small-town charm, and downtown Decatur’s renowned collection of restaurants, shops and boutiques, brewpubs, coffeehouses, and greenspaces – make this a particular great location for urban adventurers.
Set back on a landscaped lot, this unassuming home will surprise you with the amount of available space, inside and out. Timeless hardwood floors cover the first level, and the living room features built-in bookshelves, a gas-log fireplace, and a large window overlooking the lovely neighborhood. Beside the open dining area is an open-concept kitchen, including a breakfast bar, copious white cabinets with a modern backsplash and quality General Electric appliances. Through the kitchen is a separate laundry room and bonus built-in storage that could be used for added pantry space.
Those double-doors will inevitably draw you through to the back deck, where you’ll have a choice of either a lounge-style seating areas or a space perfect for grilling a meal with friends (or unwrapping and digging in to a pile of world-famous hamburger from nearby Ann’s Snack Bar). From the deck, you can step down to a large, shaded backyard screened by a privacy fence and offering a storage shed.
As much attention as there is on those shared spaces, there’s plenty of attention to private rooms as well. The ground floor features two bedrooms, which share a tiled bath that’s finished with neutral colors and features a combination tub and shower. Zip up the stairs from the common area and find a quiet, private master suite, with vaulted ceilings and skylights. This oversized space has enough room to create a home office and also touts a giant walk-in closet and a private bathroom with separate tub and shower, with everything finished in comfortable neutral tones.
Call this house yours and get ready to enjoy its many pleasures with your family, old friends, and the new friends you’ll inevitably make in this great neighborhood.
