2470 Vivian Circle

2470 Vivian Circle

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.

Dining Room

Dining Room

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.

Living Room

Living Room

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. 

Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom

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.

Jody White, North Atlanta Office Founding Member, REALTOR®

Atlanta, Georgia  –  Jody White with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty has been awarded the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR’s) Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by NAR.

Jody achieved this prestigious designation after completing 18 hours of course work designed specifically for REALTORS®. The courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring designees gain comprehensive knowledge of green homes and buildings and issues of sustainability in relation to real estate.

More specifically, Jody was trained in understanding what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of green building features and practices, distinguishing between industry rating and classification systems, listing and marketing green homes and buildings, discussing the financial grants and incentives available to homeowners, and helping consumers see a property’s green potential.

“As energy costs rise along with concern for the environment, homeowners are looking for innovative ways to save money and live responsibly,” said Dick Gaylord, NAR’s immediate past president. NAR’s Green Designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings.

The designation helps consumers who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals. As an NAR Green Designee, Jody has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for Atlanta, Roswell and Alpharetta.
