1. This home has a great floorplan! Everyone seems to want an open layout these days, because it is ideal for entertaining and for everyday life. This home not only has an open layout, it also has a family room and a living room, adding versatility and extra functionality. The family room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a fireplace surrounded by built-ins, giving it a wonderful cabin-like feel. The deck is just off the family room through one of two sets of French doors, providing a fantastic view of the private backyard. The living room and dining area are wide open to one another and have a panoramic view of the backyard through the French doors in the dining area. This home has a master with en suite bath on the main level, but one of the bedrooms upstairs is large enough to use as a master bedroom, plus it has a walk-in closet outfitted with wood shelving. A full bath is just steps away in the hall.
2. This home’s backyard is fabulous. 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 entertain family and friends with your grilling prowess. The deck has two sections – set one up as an outdoor living space complete with an outdoor sofa and chairs, and use the other as a dining space. Steps down from the deck lead to a large yard with lots of open greenspace for you to use any way you like. The back yard is fenced and has tons of room for a swingset, playhouse, sports equipment, pet areas, or outdoor games! The carriage house sits nestled among the trees in the backyard. Speaking of the carriage house…
3. This home has a carriage house! The homeowners renovated the out-building in the backyard last summer to use as a home office, and it is now a beautiful little cottage! The carriage house has a lovely set of French doors in front, giving you a wonderful view of nature while you work. Inside, hardwood floors and multiple windows give the space a wonderful, peaceful glow. A loft up top provides a space for storage, as well as a door out to an unfinished storage area. There is also storage underneath the carriage house for lawn and garden equipment, along with shelves to store things you don’t use often like holiday decorations. Add a bathroom and you’ve got a separate guest house or au pair suite. Children especially will love the carriage house – add a library ladder and the loft space becomes a place for sleepovers or playtime. So versatile!
4. This home’s location is unbeatable. This home is only a few miles or less from just about anything you could want or need! Just a stone’s throw to Chamblee and Brookhaven amenities like restaurants and retail, and several parks are minutes away. 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, strollers, and dog owners. With all that activity, you would not think you would get much peace and quiet, but Ashford Park is actually just as quiet as a neighborhood in the suburbs.
