You may think modern art isn’t your thing, but walk through the open spaces and angles of this bright, efficient contemporary Decatur house and you’ll not only get it, you’ll want to live in it.
A newer Construction with generous space meticulously designed for both comfort and energy efficiency and adorned with artisan details throughout its common areas and all 4 bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms. It’s an eye-catcher from the curb, tall with a modest footprint, with a combination of white lapboard and gray brick accented with stained wood and capped with a metal roof.
Step inside the sun-drenched interior to really appreciate its dramatic spaces, though. Light-finished hardwood floors beckon throughout, and a wooden staircase with iron rails draws eyes to the bonus living space 10 feet above. A large master bedroom is on the main floor, complete with double vanity and glass-walled space for shower and soaking tub. The oversized kitchen features custom quartz-topped counters, a large island, cabinets with soft-close drawers and doors, a built-in desk area for a home workspace, and a seamless transition to dining space large enough for 12 folks to enjoy whatever you’ve whipped up for dinner. Sliding glass doors lead to the back deck, where you can take a deep breath while gazing at the serene Japanese rock garden in the fenced back yard. Upstairs are three bedrooms, plus the den-like loft space, and an outdoor balcony overlooking the back. Throughout you’ll find high-caliber treatments – innovative bathroom tile patterns, a custom steel barn door, contemporary paint choices, and creatively designed outdoor spaces.
Is it eclectic? Sure, but that’s a good thing – and perfectly in fitting with a neighborhood that offers it’s own wonderful eccentricities. Take the restaurant scene alone: You’ll find barbecue, pho, a small coffee shop, a pizza place, and an Irish pub all in walking distance. The Avondale Marta station is an easy walk, too, and all of downtown Decatur is close by.
Walking to those amenities isn’t the only way you’ll be shrinking your carbon footprint. The house is loaded with green, energy efficient features, including the low-emission windows and doors, cell-foam insulation, an encapsulated crawlspace, and a roof rainwater harvesting system. There’s service ready to add a charging station for an electric car, too, for those jaunts farther from home.
