Indoor doggie grooming area called a can’t-miss

Larger East Lake homes have been fetching the mid-and-high $600,000s for a couple of years now, but for better or worse, almost nothing has broken the $700,000 barrier.

But now, this five-bedroom traditional new-build is essentially saying, “Hold my beer,” as it attempts to go Evel Knievel over real estate precedents and land safely at $829,900.

At 3,800 square feet, it is a lot of house for the buck, with what’s described as a “doggie grooming area” in what looks like a first-floor laundry room—a first for these pages and certainly a handy facet for pet owners.

Located roughly four blocks east of the Hosea + 2nd retail hub, which includes Poor Hendrix and The Greater Good BBQ with more options en route, the property counts five bathrooms, two main-level bedrooms, and one big bright kitchen with a backsplash that’s anything but tame.

Punctuated by exposed timbers, the massive, airy master bedroom upstairs comes with a nice-touch coffee and wine bar. (With nearly 4,000 square feet, the kitchen Keurig can seem so far away.)

Beyond the double-stack of back patios, the two-car garage is basically a little house on its own, though its living quarters may be unfinished.

Collectively, the property is marketed as being everything a buyer could ask for—in the heart of East Lake yet walking distance to Oakhurst. Which inspires the listing agent to declare, “This is it!”
