This home is located in the heart of Decatur’s Oakhurst neighborhood and a stone’s throw from McKoy Park, the Wylde Center, and the lively Oakhurst Village. The lot is unrivaled with a depth of 420-Feet and nearly ¾ of an acre! This is a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity to get a classic Thrive- built house with interiors by Nathan Thomas of the eponymous New York design firm and winner of Bravo’s Top Design. This is the designer’s first and only Atlanta home, and exhibit the high end finishes and expertly executed craft millwork that have become hallmarks of the designer’s Manhattan and East End portfolios.
The well proportioned home – with five bedrooms and four full baths – is inviting and comfortable for friends, family, and the occasional impromptu visit by neighbors in this tight knit community. The kitchen, living room (with fireplace) and incredible screened porch (with fireplace) are the heart of the home and make entertaining easy with seamless transition between inside and outside. The kitchen is equipped to accommodate the one-pot weeknight dinner as well as the preparation of multicourse meals by the trained (or aspiring) professional with the large marble workspace, a Bertazzoni range, and Kitchenaid components including a warming drawer, microwave/convection oven, and wine storage in the full butler’s pantry; and cleaning up is a snap with the Miele dishwasher. Dining can range from a picnic on the porch, relaxed around the kitchen table with banquet, or formal in the dining room. The guest suite on the main floor is ideal for the extended guest with its seclusion and privacy.
On the second floor, there are four bedrooms, including the master suite, which feels as if it sits within the canopy of the mature trees surrounding the home. The master bathroom is spa-like with dual vanities, custom cabinetry, a cast iron soaking tub, and oversized marble-clad shower with dual showerheads as well as a handheld. All outfitted with Waterworks fixtures. This is luxury! The three remaining bedrooms are well proportioned; two are connected by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, and the third is currently utilized as a studio/office with custom built-ins but could be easily converted to a functional bedroom. The spacious laundry room is conveniently situated on the second floor and includes a utility sink and abundant storage.
The outdoor space is absolutely amazing with professional landscaping and top-of-the-line irrigation system with moisture sensors. While McKoy Park is behind the home, the property is park-like and encourages the pick-up game of football or baseball in the backyard as well as a hike through the more wild-forested section of the property complete with stream on your way to the playground at College Heights.
In addition to the generous storage throughout the home – ample closet space, but also “hidden” storage created by the various built-ins – there is an oversized drive-under garage for your vehicles, tools, and recreational equipment. The daylight basement with 9-Foot ceilings is fully framed, insulated, wired, and awaiting your finishing touches, however this space already includes one of the four finished full bathrooms. The current unfinished configuration (see floor plan) is set up for a daylight bedroom with a large walk-in closet; a daylight recreation room or den with a storage closet, and a room to house all of the energy efficient systems mentioned below.
The home’s systems are all high efficiency, including a Navien tankless water heater with recirculation pump. Additionally, there is a security system installed. The home purchase includes both a 2-10 home warranty and termite retreat/repair warranty.
Don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the nicest homes in Oakhurst. With summer coming you’ll want to be settled-in soon in order to take advantage of everything the community has to offer – from award winning schools to the festivals, restaurants, and shopping of Decatur – this is home!
