Property Description

Nestled within the idyllic surroundings of historic Druid Hills, this two-story home offers timeless charm and sophistication. An expansive azalea hedge lends an air of privacy to this 'just shy of an acre' property. The FOYER boasts a classic wide-open staircase and is open to the formal DINING ROOM complete with a wood-burning fireplace and two sets of French doors that lead to the expansive front porch. A 'friend's' entrance invites you to the covered side porch, a serene retreat perfect for a glass of wine or iced tea. On the other side of the entranceway is the formal LIVING ROOM with another fireplace and two sets of French doors that also open onto the front porch. The fireplace is flanked by more French doors that open to the SUNROOM, which is often bathed in natural light offering a peaceful sanctuary for reading and relaxation. For gatherings and everyday living alike, the FAMILY ROOM features built-in bookcases and large windows with transom windows that flood the space with sunlight. Walk into the light and airy BREAKFAST ROOM where three sets of sliding French doors lead to the rear deck and back yard. The bright KITCHEN is equipped with white cabinets, marble and granite countertops, marble backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar. Classic true divided light windows cover the opposite wall and provide a beautiful picturesque backdrop. Open storage showcases cookbooks and culinary treasures. Outside, the REAR DECK spans the full length of the home, offering spaces for lounging, dining, and entertaining. Climbing jasmine plants create a private oasis for al fresco enjoyment. Upstairs, discover floor-to-ceiling bookcases on the landing that opens to three SECONDARY BEDROOMS, two SECONDARY BATHROOMS, and an oversized PRIMARY SUITE. Bedroom features include fireplaces and transom windows. One, a converted sleeping porch, includes permanent stairs to a finished room in the attic-a perfect hideaway for a playroom or arts & crafts studio. The primary suite boasts refinished hardwood floors, a large sitting area, fireplace, and custom walk-in closet. The primary bathroom features a double vanity, separate soaking tub, and shower. The BASEMENT offers finished and unfinished areas, including a powder room, mudroom with laundry, and ample storage, with interior and exterior entrances for convenience. Outside, the driveway leads to multiple parking options, including a parking pad for two in the front for guests. The electric gate opens to a carport under the deck and a second parking pad for two. A recently renovated CARRIAGE HOUSE studio above the two-car garage blends modern comforts with historic charm, featuring reclaimed heart of pine countertops and floors. This Zen space has natural light and beautiful views of the backyard. The open living-dining-working space includes a present-day full kitchen, full bathroom and a sleeping loft. The backyard, with mature landscaping -Japanese Maples, redwoods, Ginkgo trees, a hemlock grove, sugar maple, and a pollinator garden create a private park-like setting to enjoy throughout the seasons.
