For a hideaway right in the middle of Decatur, look no further than this stately Winnona Park home, spaciously designed with five bedrooms, and set behind a mature front lawn with large trees framed by a wrought-iron fence. You’d never know there’s a half-acre retreat that doubles as a bird sanctuary and a veritable forest of fruit tucked away in the back.
Insides are the quality touches you expect from such a classic, traditional-style home: an airy, sun-filled living space, an adjacent spacious dining room with plenty of room for 10 or more guests, a family room also bathed in natural light, and a roomy kitchen bedecked with granite counters, brick backsplash, and soft-close cabinets. Rounding out the main level is a laundry room with plenty of cabinets, a modern hall bathroom with walk-in shower, two bedrooms, and a sumptuously large screened porch. A kitchen stairwell leads you downs to the daylight basement, perfect for an exercise or craft room and furnished with a freezer for bolstering the kitchen larder. On the second floor, find the master suite floored with gleaming hardwood and adorned with a decorative wooden beam across a tall ceiling. The bedroom offers two closets, and a bathroom with both whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. Perhaps best of all, here, is the private deck that overlooks the sprawling sanctuary of the backyard. Also upstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a closet, that share a full bathroom with double vanity.
Outside, the large back yard offers up a bevvy of spaces, including a fire pit with great sunset views and a bird sanctuary. It’s also a forager’s delight, with strawberries, blueberries, and cherries ready to harvest in the summer and drop on top of a breakfast you an enjoy on that mammoth porch. Water the fruit and herb garden from reclaimed rainfall in the rain barrels. A two-car garage keeps your cars out of Georgia’s summer heat, and two sheds offer plenty of bonus storage and puttering space. The house boasts lots of future-proofing touches like a gutter guard with lifetime warranty to ensure you’ll never be on a ladder clearing leaves from the gutters, and a B-Dry waterproofing system that’s guaranteed for the life of the home.
It’s all tucked on a quiet street just one block from Winnona Park Elementary and two from Agnes Scott College. And all the eateries, pubs, and shopping at the intersection of College and Candler is just four blocks away.
