3 Things We Adore About This Home

1. The floorplan. What do buyers want? A home with an open floorplan and plenty of space for living, entertaining, and storage – and this home’s got it! The main living area is bright and open with the kitchen overlooking the family room – great for entertaining, of course, but also for daily life. The kitchen features top of the line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a center island with veggie sink, a sunny breakfast nook, and a breakfast bar that seats four. There’s a separate formal dining room, too, for hosting larger groups. In addition, the entrance foyer is so large that it can double as a formal living room. This home also has five bedrooms and five and a half baths, which means every bedroom has access to a full bath! Both the terrace level and the top level each have a bedroom with a bath, which is ideal for guests who want extra privacy. Speaking of the terrace level…

2. The terrace level. The terrace level adds even more living and entertaining space! This level features a bedroom with a trey ceiling and a full bath; a wet bar, complete with stained cabinetry topped with granite, a stainless steel sink, and a built-in ice maker, beverage cooler, and microwave; a huge rec room that can handle a pool table plus furniture; and an unbelievable media room. The media room boasts a 106 inch screen, ceiling projector, and five in-wall speakers plus a sub-woofer. You will love watching movies in your very own home theater, complete with theater lighting and theater-style reclining seats! The rec room also has a door leading out to a covered stone patio and a gorgeous backyard. Did we mention there are also two walk-in wine cellars on the terrace level? You only find luxurious features like these in special homes like this one.

3. The location. The icing on the cake of this remarkable home is the location! This home sits on a quiet street in a sought-after Brookhaven location, within walking distance of restaurants, retail, parks, schools, services, MARTA, and more! You can walk to Starbucks for a latte and then get some grocery shopping done at Kroger. You can have lunch or dinner at any of Brookhaven’s top hot spots in Village Place on Dresden Drive, like Kaleidoscope, Verde, Haven, and The One Sushi. Town Brookhaven, where you will find Publix, Marshalls, Costco, Olde Blind Dog, Moe’s, and Cinebistro, is also just minutes away. You have easy access to interstates and to Buckhead shopping and nightlife. Plus, there’s always something going on in Brookhaven! The Brookhaven Farmers’ Market happens every spring on Saturdays from 9-12; food trucks pop up at many locations around town, and many seasonal activities and events are offered like the Brookhaven Beer Fest, the Brookhaven Arts Festival, and the Chili Cook Off.
