A Room of Her Own Should Feel Fresh, Not Frilly

While we are loyal to Midtown, it’s often fun to take tips from Atlanta neighbors on design that makes an impact. Everything about this Decatur house, from layout to trim, makes the home feel like a historical foursquare that has been standing strong for a hundred years.

Location, location: Just blocks from both Decatur Square and Oakhurst Village, the home is perfectly placed for those who like to be on foot.

R&R: Five full bathrooms and five full bathrooms offer plenty of space to rest and restore. Plus, the master bath features a double vanity and garden tub.

Head out: Drive-under carport in the back serves dual purpose: a place to park cars or for outdoor entertaining. The back porch has a wood-burning fireplace ideal for fireside chats.

Diamond in Decatur: Gas lanterns and diamond paned windows are a glimpse into the past.

Keeping it Hip: While the house was built in 2017, the hipped roof is a nod to American foursquare design of the mid-1890s to the late 1930s.
