Featured Home: Breathtaking Georgian in Charming Brookhaven (Maryanne Winchester)July 12, 2010
Here is the home you have been waiting for! This stately five bedroom Georgian home is rich in detail and depth, and is located in the heart of Brookhaven but delivers the privacy of a secluded envclave. Your guests can be “dropped off” on Osborne Road, while family and friends can enter from a private carriage drive on Kendrick Road. The location is simply amazing. The home is situated near a popular dog park — providing access to a wonderful community with fabulous opportunities to meet your neighbors, — and is also close to the MARTA station and is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping.
The inside of 2801 Osborne Road might surprise you. From floor to ceiling there are expansive details that will delight your eye. The two-story entry is graced by outstanding columns and arches and the polished travertine floors boast marble inlays. The designer touch continues throughout the house with amazing detail in the rich moldings. Columns divide the living and dining areas.
The handsome family room makes for delightful conversation next to the wood-burning fireplace or a quiet evening of reading as you choose a classic from the custom cabinets. Also on the main level is a home office/guest bedroom with full bath.
The sleek kitchen has a walk-in pantry, upgraded maple cabinets and a breakfast bar for three.
The master bedroom features a custom painted double trey ceiling, a large master closet and a bathroom with a separate shower and spectacular soaking tub, not to mention the double vanities, separate toilet room and a trey ceiling.
The two upstairs secondary bedrooms are large and share a jack’n jill bath. There are guest rooms on the main level as well as one located in the terrace level — both have a full bath.
The extra “elbow” room of this house will not disappoint! The home is over 3,000 square feet, not counting the terrace level. The very large recreation room on the terrace level opens to the patio, and the backyard is fenced on three sides with more than enough room for a playset or a game of kickball! You will love the deck with Chippendale railings that can be accessed by two sets of french doors. There is a walkway that leads from the deck to the backyard and down to the driveway. This house is stunning in its traditional feel but is built with today’s lifestyle in mind.
