From the sylvan streets of Decatur to upper-crust Buckhead, Atlanta is dotted with myriad examples of charming Tudor residences that have valiantly stood the test of time.
Count this 1932 Morningside dwelling—modernized but not sterilized—among them.
Listed this week for $999,000, the five-bedroom property is being marketed as an enchanting blend of charm and luxury, located around the bend from Morningside’s North Highland Avenue commercial strip.
Less lordly than other Tudors around town, and seemingly well-kept from the basement to the upstairs olde-worlde shutters, it’s a study in thoughtful proportionality that could make a McMansion blush.
Being a hike from Piedmont Park, transit, and beefier retail options means the 40 WalkScore doesn’t really impress, but like the gigantic elevated deck, the 3,498 square feet inside does.
One ancillary bathroom (of four) is vintage in all the right ways, while the sleek master is decidedly not. That stone-clad, airy lavatory with ceiling-mounted speakers, combined with the master bedroom, encompasses the entire second floor.
An electric gate unveils the backyard, with its gorgeous stone fire pit area and pro-grade landscaping. Other perks include the cozy, finished basement with media room and refinished hardwoods upstairs that quality, as the listing says, as “beautiful.”
