The amenities afforded by the luxurious Decatur Renaissance condominiums are easy to see – whether you’re looking inside the complex at the swimming pool, yoga and fitness center, courtyard with lovely centerpiece sculpture, conference center, media room, and club room – or just outside the grounds at all the commerce in downtown Decatur’s heart. It’s a prized location that fewer than 170 people and families get to call home.
This particular home is a one-bedroom condo with a guest room, easily proposed as a second bedroom with the built-in Murphy bed. The whole place is finished with quality touches. Imagine waking up with light creeping in the bedroom picture window, and stepping from the bed onto a luxurious, comfortable cork floor. Select the day’s clothes from the huge walk-in closet, and move into the bathroom, directly accessible from the bedroom, to get ready for the day. Couples? No problem here, as the bathroom boasts double vanities and a stand-alone glass shower in addition to a combination tub and shower. Then it’s on to breakfast, in a kitchen lined with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, gorgeous cabinets, a large pantry, and adjacent laundry room. Enjoy that first meal at the breakfast bar, or take it back to the bedroom’s private balcony for one of the best views in the complex: facing the inner courtyard and overlooking the swimming pool.
As well as a guest bedroom, that bonus room can easily function as a home office. But if you’re not working from home, make your in-town commute traffic-free with just a one-block walk to the Decatur MARTA, or hop in your car in the secure parking deck, where you have two designated spots. On your return, grab dinner at acclaimed restaurants that are all on the same block, including J. Christopher’s, Noodle, and Fresh to Order. If you’ve got kids, you’re in the City Schools of Decatur district.
On leisure days, you’ll find plenty to do just outside your door, which sends you out to lovely Ponce de Leon. A downtown stroll reveals a host of amenities just a block or two away: 4 acres of gardens, tennis courts, and playgrounds at Scott Park, the lauded main branch of the Dekalb County Public Library, Decatur Recreation Center’s gyms, a brewpub and billiards hall, and any number of retail shops and boutiques.
When you’ve had your day’s fill of downtown, wind down in your condo’s comfortable living space, which is covered in hardwood floors. Choose a book from the custom built-in bookshelves or turn on a large TV – there’s room for one on the shelves – to enjoy a movie with friends, there inside your quiet sanctuary in the bustling center of the city.
