1. A perfect floorplan. Everyone seems to want an open layout these days, and understandably so – it is ideal for entertaining and also for everyday life. This home’s main living area consists of the kitchen, dining area, and family room, all open to one another. These rooms, while separate, are really just one big space. Natural light streams in from any number of windows on the main level and bounces into every corner. The open floorplan allows for not just light to flow unimpeded, but also foot traffic and conversation – a must-have for those who enjoy entertaining. A versatile office/study sits adjacent to the family room through a set of French doors and can be used as a 4th bedroom. A full bath with laundry room is also on the main level. The deck is just off the family room through a set of French doors, providing a fantastic view of the private backyard even from the kitchen. The bedrooms are all upstairs, a great set-up for those who might have children.
2. Unique design elements. As we mentioned earlier, carefully placed windows and skylights allow light to flow into the home and zip around every room. The home also has thoughtfully placed interior windows and transom windows, allowing the light to flow through from room to room. The upper landing of this home has a cathedral ceiling with skylights, providing light from above, and windows above each interior bedroom door. Each of the three bedrooms also has a huge picture window. The result is light coming in from outside the exterior windows as well as light from the skylights flowing in through the interior windows – light from multiple directions and sources. Even the bathrooms in this home have skylights! Many other interesting and aesthetically pleasing design elements appear throughout the home, such as regal columns separating the dining room from the family room and a neat art shelf in the stairwell.
3. An amazing backyard. This home sits on ¼ of an acre! A large lot means you get a big backyard to enjoy, and this home’s backyard is amazing! The huge deck has a lot of space to kick back, relax, and show off your grill skills to your family and friends. The deck has two sections – set one up as an outdoor living space complete with an outdoor sofa and chairs, and the other can be laid out as a dining space. The backyard is fenced and has tons of room for a swingset, playhouse, dog house, sports equipment, pet areas, or outdoor games. Illuminate your evening with roasted marshmallows over the firepit. The nature preserve next door means this home has more privacy and quiet than your average home, especially one inside the perimeter. Speaking of location…
4. An unbeatable location. This home is only a few miles or less from just about anything you could want or need! Just a stone’s throw to Brookhaven’s top restaurants and retail on Dresden Drive, like Kaleidoscope and Pour. A short walk brings you to Briarwood Park, where you can enjoy the renovated pool, tennis courts, and gym facilities. It’s just a short drive to the interstate, or to Buckhead shopping and nightlife. The icing on the cake is the neighborhood itself. Annual and seasonal events such as block parties and holiday gatherings take place year-round, and the streets are always busy with joggers, walkers, baby strollers, and dog owners. With all that activity, you would not think you would get much peace and quiet, but Drew Valley is actually just as peaceful as a neighborhood outside the perimeter. But here, you get the best of both worlds. How enlightening!
