Billed as an “impeccable” hidden gem on quiet street

Tucked between College Avenue and the Oakhurst Village, this cozy Craftsman-style offering is being billed as a “hidden gem on a quiet street” with an interior that’s nothing short of “impeccable.”

The living room opens to this.

And it gives an idea how far a million bucks — or, well, $989,900, to be exact — goes in this section of the City of Decatur these days.

This five-bedroom, four-bathroom property was built two years ago, and its 4,000 square feet boast a few touches that set it apart from other large new homes in the same vein: a cozy basement lounge space that’s all-too rare intown, the kitchen’s breakfast nook (a sweet touch), a collapsable glass wall that unites the living room and a screened porch, and a dining room that seats 12.

Lovers of white-and-grey motifs and Carrara marble won’t be disappointed.

Other perks include a six-burner stove, double ovens, custom window treatments, surround-sound speakers, and a general understated sleekness to the whole place.

On the flip-side, the so-so WalkScore of 62 is a bit puzzling, given the proximity of East Lake MARTA Station and retail a few blocks in each direction.

The home last sold for $102,000 less in the summer of 2015, which says a lot about the temperature of this market.
