Located across from Sycamore Park in the historic district just blocks from the Decatur Square, this extraordinary residence steeped in Southern elegance and curb appeal will sweep you off your feet. The brick driveway and walkways meander through lush gardens that have been masterfully cultivated to provide rich seasonal hues. The handsome brick rocking chair front porch with stately columns greets you, and you can easily imagine sitting with neighbors for an afternoon visit sipping iced tea and looking out to the sumptuous greenery, and sidewalk passersby. Through the classical front door with its decorative sidelights and transom, this magnificent home reveals freshly painted light colors and gleaming hardwoods throughout, as it unfolds as an art lover’s dream with high ceilings, plentiful tall windows with natural light and large living spaces. Full of character and charm, the living areas near the entryway on the generous main floor include a large formal living room adorned by a grand fireplace, nice sized light-filled corner study, and formal dining room accessed by glass paned French doors. The decadent gourmet chef’s kitchen boasts high-end stainless appliances, 6-burner gas range, ice maker, beverage cooler, separate vegetable sink and prep area, plentiful storage drawers, hidden pantry, white glazed tile backsplash and black granite countertops that surround an oversized kitchen island, perfect for wine tastings or morning coffee. Through a lovely large archway, the kitchen opens onto an expansive great room with floor-to-ceiling built-ins, wide ceiling beams and large pane windows, and as your eyes travel over the luxurious details, you find even more living areas to pursue. A delightful, covered side porch is accessed from French doors and looks out upon the home’s private gardens, a great place for reading the paper and relaxing in the afternoon. The glass door at the rear of the great room reveals two large porches, one covered, both exceptional areas for dining al fresco, and outdoor parties of every kind. Back inside, next to the central grand staircase, is a large guest bedroom with picturesque fireplace, crisp plantation shutters and additional closet space, along with a good- sized full bathroom fitted with linen cabinets and extra shelving, stylishly well-prepared for friends and guests. Up the stairs to the large sweeping landing, to the right you will find two children’s or guest bedrooms, one with a charming built in window seat, and between them a cheerfully bright and clean full bathroom with shower/bath combination, and a large laundry room complete with cabinets and plenty of storage. From the wide landing to the left, you will discover the breath-taking master suite. The impressive, lofted ceilings and drop chandelier are just the beginning, as you explore the two custom-designed closets, fully built-in drawers, dressing area, and island with oh so many places to store designer finds. The master’s spa-like bathroom mixes classical and modern in luxurious neutral stone harmony with large jetted soaking tub, step-in full tile shower, dual vanities and separate water closet. Award-winning landscape architect, Dottie Myers, included pink Shishi Gashira camellias, cryptomeria, specimen boxwoods, Japanese maples, magnolias and more, provide a feast for the eyes as you navigate the front gardens and through the rod iron gate to the backyard’s koi pond or down the driveway to the two-car garage carriage house. The garage’s built-in storage and workroom countertops and additional potter’s room are perfect for gardening, projects, and around-town bicycle or sporting equipment storage. Above the garage, the carpeted carriage house is an oversized flexible place to suit your vision – a music room, home office retreat, or fitness area, your options are endless. Located just a few blocks from award-winning schools, and Decatur's many notable restaurants, this unique residence is truly one of a kind.
