Picturesque Druid Hills Tudor secures contract in a day

1927 property is crisply updated

A Tudor-style home in Atlanta’s Lake claire neighborhood.
Anti-McMansion proportions.

Easy on the eyes, this Druid Hills Tudor from 1927 is promoted as being “walking distance to all Decatur has to offer,” which is true, if you don’t mind hoofing a mile to Chai Pani and such.

In any case, the four-bedroom property graced the market at $749,990 on Thursday and appears to have gone under contract before the weekend. Sizzle!

Its location in the coveted Fernbank Elementary School district helps, as does the overall size (3,000 square feet), coupled with inimitable details spanning from the chimney to the fireplaces. Even the slightly Bavarian back of the house looks picturesque, punctuated by a small balcony off the master suite.

Other perks include the cozy private deck, a sunroom, and the updated kitchen’s breakfast nook and wide-planks. There’s plenty of off-street parking though none of it’s covered.

This old house last sold in 2003 for $290,000, prior to an upper-level expansion and other updates that lend a crispness throughout.
