This stylish model residence at East Howard Place, a 24-unit project in what's become a townhome hotbed just east of downtown Decatur, is being marketed as an "unparalleled opportunity" for $769,900. Down the street from Kimball House, in what's known as the Rail Arts District, the project is designed to be classic yet urban, with brick galore, iron balconies and "private" courtyards; two of the two-dozen units have sold thus far, according to developer Monte Hewett Homes' website. This big corner showplace has three bedrooms, 2,550 square feet and is "dressed to the nines" with white-oak flooring, top-flight finishes, a wraparound balcony and surround sound, the listing agent asserts. It's also worth noting that sunlight (and train sounds) will pour in from windows on three sides. The "immeasurable amenities" of Decatur are steps away, as the agent notes, contributing to a not-too-shabby Walk Score of 79.
