Within walking distance of Oakhurst Village, this 2016 home redefines “open concept” with folding glass patio doors

In what’s described as an East Lake “modern farmhouse,” like basically any non-Craftsman Atlanta home these days with a wide front porch, there’s lot of charm, contemporary touches, and privacy.

Enter the front door of the impressive four-bedroom, three-bath, 2016 property, and the “unique wood detailing” in the foyer ceiling immediately catches the eye.

Other noteworthy accents include the black wall in the dining room, the industrial vanity in a bathroom, the built-ins in the living room, and those pulley lights over the kitchen island.

Having not one but two master suites, as well as a butler’s pantry, off the kitchen also is a feature not commonly found in non-mansions (this one counts 2,634 square feet).

But the most eye-catching aspect is easily the folding glass patio doors in the living room that open up to the aptly described “extra spacious” deck behind the house.

In fact, the back deck serves as an extension of the living room, with plenty of space for dining and outdoor furniture.

Plus, the fenced-in backyard includes a two-car detached garage, a desired upgrade over regular off-street parking.

The listing promotes the home’s Fayetteville Road location as being within walking distance of Oakhurst Village, but future homeowners also could walk to the growing Hosea + 2nd development in East Lake and downtown Kirkwood.

All in all, it looks like this property has the whole package of design, amenities, curb appeal, and location for the asking price of $740,000, which isn’t the neighborhood’s most expensive listing these days. Not by a significant margin.
