A few blocks north of the commercial strip that includes Chai Pani and Taqueria del Sol, this 1920s cottage in Decatur strikes a smart balance between vintage charm and respectful updates.

Find it in the Great Lakes community along Clairemont Avenue, with a somewhat confounding WalkScore of so-so 61 despite the array of downtown Decatur’s walkable options around the corner.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom status might not appeal to larger families that flock to Decatur, but the layout is open, and 1,766 square feet is certainly doable.

The sun-drenched flex space off the living room—currently an office—is a charming touch, as are the multiple backyard options for al fresco dining.

The main living space, with original fireplace.

The home shares a driveway with the Tudor next door, but that leads back to separate parking-pad spaces.

The property, at 607 Clairemont Avenue, was listed by Keller Knapp at $515,000 late this week.

It’s the priciest two-bedroom of its size in the area. But living in the heart of what’s consistently declared Georgia’s best place to call home comes at a premium.
