Spacious living in the heart of Decatur (Mary Jo Spence)August 20, 2010
How would you like to live in a house that is immaculate and spacious enough for you to delight in being home, but close enough that you could walk to city centre of Decatur to enjoy the renowned shopping, night life and art galleries? All this and more is found at 2470 Vivian Circle, nestled in a charming gated community.
Upon entering the French door entry, the home features a foyer that is a greeting space for guests and provides privacy for the main living areas. The two front rooms of the house, the Dining room and the Living room, are flanked by majestic and bright floor to ceiling arched windows that fill the house with sunlight. The Dining room, sized to entertain twelve or more guests, features grand windows wainscot to distinguish the room with a formal touch. The Living room is cheerful and versatile which could lend itself to a wonderful home office or additional media space.
The Den area has gleaming hardwood floors, cozy stack stone fireplace with gas logs, overhead ceiling fan and a door leading to the outside deck. The Kitchen features stainless steel appliances and clean contemporary lines and as a bonus, overlooks the family living area so entertaining is made more enjoyable as the host doesn’t have to miss a bit of the conversation when preparing for guests. Food preparation is made simple with an island featuring a sink and fresh Corian countertops. Just off the kitchen there is a bright separate breakfast area that also leads to a full laundry room.
You won’t feel a bit cramped in this home- the wide stairwell has a mid-stairwell landing between the main and upper floor affording space for a conversation nook! The upstairs Master is a true in-town retreat, larger than most, and features a dramatic trey ceiling and two large walk-in closets- one located in the bath area. The bath features a double vanity and a separate spa soaking tub. The secondary bedrooms on the upper level all feature hardwood floors, trey ceilings and full closets.
On the terrace level, there are two additional bedrooms. At present, one is being used as an office and the other an exercise room, but both have full closets and share a full hall bath. These rooms would work well as a roommate floor plan.
The outside deck has a screen for privacy. From the deck, you can access the yard and the two full separate garage bays. As a welcomed addition, the driveway can accommodate extra cars-a sought after feature for in-town living!
Offered at $425,000
Five bedrooms, three full and one half baths.
