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

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.

Featured Home: Suburban home with Cottage style

December 29, 2009

170 High Bluff Court

Do you want a home that looks and feels like a cottage, but need the space of a suburban home? Did you think that was impossible? Visit 170 High Bluff Court in Duluth and you will find your dream home.

Living room

Four bedrooms and four and a half baths take on a whole new dimension. Quality is easily found in the home that is a builder’s personal home, extra touches are what set it apart. The home was originally built in 1997 and has been well taken care of with lots of updates. All new windows have recently been added.

Back Patio and Yard

Inside on the main level you will find beautiful hardwoods in the dining and windows in two living areas with transoms or decorative moldings. A doorway framed by molding and glass separates a family room and dining room. Step back to the kitchen and breakfast room and you will be delighted. Diagonally laid black and white tiled floor, glass front cabinetry, plate racks and a center island painted in an accent color. It feels like you are in a English countryside cottage. Lots of storage and bright light from the windows in the breakfast area will make this one of your favorite places to be.

Side exterior

The master is on the main floor with a connecting bath. The bath has a split vanity with a sitting area between the two sinks. There is a window high above the vanity that allows natural light to flow in.

A separate tub, shower and water closet rounding out the space.

Outside the main level a paver patio and open yard will make you dream of far away places while you are relaxing with your friends and family. The backyard is a wonderful place for a flower or vegetable garden and already has a feel of an English garden.

The garage has a suite with a kitchenette area and private bath. What a great area for an au pair or guest suite. If you need other options, think of how much you could accomplish if this was your home office.

This home truly mixes cottage and suburbia. It has everything you want with in-town living and the space of a home in a larger community. The home is located in the gated community of Winfield on The River. It is being offered by Suzanne Close and co-listing agents Mary Jo Spence and Bonnie Majher of Atlanta Fine Homes for $995,000.

Four bedrooms, four full baths, and one half bath.
