798 Grove Bend
For cottage comforts without cramped confines, this generous home in The Grove at Avondale is just the thing to give you a lift – quite literally. A private elevator waits to carry you and your family to any of the home’s three stories, with balcony views of this exclusive community’s green spaces and amenities.
It’s one of just 36 homes in a planned East Decatur detached-home community designed by Thrive Homes. And aside from the aesthetics and conveniences of an engineered locale, you’ll enjoy individual interior luxuries like wood floors and high ceilings, custom window treatments and other upscale flourishes throughout home’s 2,400 square feet.
Your entry to this retreat comes through the front door, nestled behind the rocking-chair front porch, or through a side entry inside the two-car garage. Hang your coat on a hook, drop your bag in the built-in storage space, and mosey upstairs to large open-design living room, dining area, and kitchen. That kitchen includes a large island for use as a breakfast bar or for quick lunches, quartz countertop with marble backsplash, quality stainless steel appliances, and a walk-in pantry. The living space unfolds into a large covered balcony overlooking the community’s pool and the picturesque green space.
One of the home’s four bedrooms is on the main floor as well, complete with a walk-in closet and a private door to a communal bath featuring stone tile flooring and a glass-walled shower. A second large bedroom is on the ground floor below, with an en-suite bathroom of its own, also with stone floor and glass shower.
The other two bedrooms are on the upper level, starting with the oversized master suite, with breathtaking shiplap woodwork on the ceiling. The room boasts two walk-in closets with custom shelving and a sizable en-suite bathroom that’s finished with double vanity, oversized glass shower, and private water closet. The final bedroom has access to a hall bath that touts a tub and stone tile floor.
This house is a particular treasure for those in search of a wheelchair-accessible space, as its wide halls and elevator make egress to any of its wonderful spaces an easy roll.
And outside of all this home’s features, you’ll find convenient access to the amenities of East Decatur, too. Avondale’s weekly farmers market is just a few steps from your door. Marta’s East Decatur Station is just a mile away, and the Greenway Trail is just a few easy blocks by foot or bike. And, of course, you’re just minutes from all of the dining, shopping, and parks of Decatur proper without the burden of the city’s taxes.
