The Atlanta Regional Commission recently forked over $100,000 to the City of Decatur as part of its Livable Cities Initiative Grants to "develop conceptual plans for development at the East Lake MARTA Station."
This five-bedroom property was built two years ago, and its 4,000 square feet boast a few touches that set it apart from other large new homes in the same vein. Lovers of white-and-grey motifs and Carrara marble won’t be disappointed.
According to the listing, the dwelling is located "only steps from Oakhurst Village Center" and features large living spaces on the main floor with a "dramatic front dining room and open chef’s kitchen," as well as master bedroom suite.
Listed since July at $950,000, this handsome, 4,238-square-foot goliath plays it safe from a design perspective, incorporating the coffered ceilings, open kitchen, and white-gray aesthetics that’ve proved successful for developers in recent years.
Porchfest started as a wild idea among a few Oakhurst denizens, but by showtime last year, it was being called "the largest organic, free-range, crowd-sourced music festival in the state of Georgia." This year it happens on a Saturday.
If there's such a thing as quintessential new Oakhurst, this cozy five-bedroom Craftsman could be it. And its pricing history exemplifies where the neighborhood — like others — has gone in a relatively short time: about a quarter-million dollars up.
This 1933 Craftsman "dream home" is more than 90 percent new construction and, the agent says, is sure to have everything a discerning Oakhurst buyer is yearning for, just in time for summer. But it's been a tough sell.
Atlanta's social scene is exploding, and the growing lineup of festivals is getting crowded. To help set the record straight, and determine which events are never to be missed, The Great Atlanta Festival Face-Off is marching on!
The Great Atlanta Festival Face-Off continues right now, pitting the remaining field of 16 in friendly, festive competition. The lineup of ATL fests, perennial mega-events, and wondrous gatherings is getting crowded. A little May Madness is in order.
In a city full of ground-up new Craftsmans and contemporary creations, this one takes a fresh approach, with steep, Tudor-style rooflines, classic archways, bountiful brick, and touches like Bevelo gas lanterns for a result that seems timeless but current.
