404 Carter Ave
For a home that combines Old World aesthetics and modern design, all within a chip-shot of some of the Atlanta area’s best outdoor amenities – including the PGA Tour stop East Lake Golf Club – this traditional-style five-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is hard to beat. Its charms are apparent even from the curb, as you take in the tall and elegant brick construction accented with Craftsman touches, timeless shaker shingles, and a shady and welcoming porch roofed in tin.
Step inside and let your eyes dance around a beautifully renovated and maintained space with ten-foot ceilings and hardwood floors gleaming from the copious natural light that spills into an open-concept living space. That space includes a family room that can be divided by custom-built sliding barn doors, a generous dining area, and a living room large enough for comfortable chats around the gas fireplace that’s topped with lovely wooden mantel and flanked with built-in bookshelves. Floor-to-ceiling bay windows offer lovely views of the manicured lawn, and there’s easy access to a hall bathroom, a roomy back deck, and a kitchen bedecked with a large island, granite countertops, beautiful blue tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, gas stove with Viking range hood, and a walk-in pantry for your larder. The lower level offers a finished basement with media room, bedroom and a full bathroom – perfect as a guest suite, a space for teens, or just an easy way to keep things nice and quiet upstairs – as well as access to the two-car garage. The top floor is where you’ll find the retreat of an owner’s suite, designed with natural light in mind and offering a walk-in closet and en-suite bath with double vanity, glass-walled shower and a whirlpool tub. The top floor offers three additional bedrooms as well as a laundry room, linen closet, and hall bathroom.
Outside, and even closer than East Lake golfing, find an exclusive community park, gazebo, and nature preserve in Olmsted’s greenspace, just a few steps along sidewalks well-lit by streetlights. The Charlie Yates Golf Course is also nearby, as is East Lake Park, and you’ll find yourself an easy distance from the amenities of downtown Decatur’s renowned restaurants and shopping and all of downtown Atlanta.
