257 2nd. Ave., Decatur, GA 30030
From the porch’s broad brick columns to the roof’s wide, overhanging eaves, to the exposed timber pediment, this freshly updated bungalow overflows with a craftsman-style charm that adds to the comfort of its Oakhurst amenities.
But don’t stop on the generous front porch, no matter how inviting it may be to imagine enjoying a cold drink from a rocking chair there, behind the low shrubs in such a sought-after neighborhood. No, go ahead and cross into the 3-bed, 2-bath home and your expectations of well-being will continue to be rewarded. The house beckons with gorgeous hardwood floors throughout, leading first to a lovely living room, complete with a tile-hearth fireplace nestled between two windows. The separate dining room nearby seats eight, taking plus-sized family gatherings in Southern stride. And staging a big meal is a joy here, from a kitchen boasting granite countertops with tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, and cabinet and storage space that’s abundant by any standard, not just for a charming craftsman bungalow like this. Bedrooms are spacious, beginning with a master suite that includes a walk-in closet and a lovely en suite bathroom. The secondary bedrooms are also roomy and bright. The house is newly updated, and no matter what room you’re in, you’ll find modern light fixtures.
Access to the home is a breeze, too, with ample parking and driveway access from the front or rear of the house. Choose the latter and you’ll see a gorgeous green space in the back, with a patio just waiting for you to fire up a grill and call over a few friends, including the new ones you’ll make throughout your strolls through the shady, tree-lined streets of Oakhurst.
With the Oakhurst community’s abundance of festivals and events — from Porchfest to the Decatur BBQ Blues & Bluegrass Festival, to Wylde Center community garden, to even the Madison Avenue Soapbox Derby — and nightlife and shopping at bustling Oakhurst Village, just a short walk away, you’re bound to fall in love not just with this home, but with Oakhurst and all of Decatur’s nearby amenities.
