586 Harold Avenue NE
With its elegant footprint and an unassuming three stories, all set back on a shady, mature front lawn, this Lake Claire home puts up a good front. But its amenities go far deeper than just curb appeal.
Its charms will be evident as you enter up the front steps, across the large covered front porch and into its classic splendor. Let your eyes follow the gleaming hardwood floor into the open space that forms the living and dining rooms, past custom, built-in shelving, to the back door and the screened porch beyond. Beside the living area, you’ll find a kitchen that’s well stocked with cabinets, a quartz counter for quick and easy breakfasts, and tasteful stainless steel appliances. The kitchen window overlooks a large, stone-paved patio and back yard defined by a privacy fence. Rounding out the main floor is a large bedroom and a full bathroom accessible to both that room and to visitors who will be dying to attend a dinner party in your new home.
Upstairs also features hardwood floors in an impressive, high-ceiling master suite with a view of the lovely back yard and an enviable bathroom that features a double vanity, lots of cabinets, a large glass shower and a walk-in closet. Two other upstairs bedrooms – that’s a total of four! – share a full hall bathroom finished with quartz.
All that living area sits atop plenty of flexible space on the bottom level, including a two-car garage, a home gym, and separate storage area. There’s plenty of room down there to stow your bikes, for a little cycling down tree-lined Harold Avenue, through the eminently bikeable Lake Claire neighborhood, or just a few blocks down to any of the parks clustered nearby, including Candler Park, Shady Side, Dellwood, and Olmstead Linear Park. Fernbank is less than a mile away – a 5 minute drive or easy 20 minute walk – for family adventures. And golfers will love the easy proximity to Druid Hills Golf Club.
The Candler Park Marta station is only about a mile away – just five minutes on that bike – for hassle-free access to all of Atlanta’s amenities with none of the traffic worries. All the eclectic dining on McClendon Avenue is also close, whether you’re after Sicilian-style pizza at Fellini’s, Tex-Mex from Gato’s, all-day breakfast at The Flying Biscuit Cafe, or just a good cup of coffee or tea at the eclectic Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party. For quality of life, this house in this great neighborhood simply can’t be beat.
