Bespoke Craftsman Cottage inspired by famed female architect, Leila Ross Wilburn, one of the South's first and most prolific women of architecture! As in many of her novel designs, this cottage features oversized living room and dining room thoughtfully sited to afford delightful natural light in winter. Updated roomy kitchen, tremendous storage includes: laundry room/walk-in pantry, ample period closets and a huge and highly functional basement. This architectural jewel is in a most walkable central city of Decatur location, within a designated historic district that is nationally recognized for its collection of Craftsman-style bungalows faithfully protected to yield a dreamy old world vibe with quiet cul-de-sac center canopied with mature Palm trees and shady sidewalks. The subject structure has been fastidiously maintained with upgrades that matter; new water and sewer lines to the street, architectural shingle roof, redesigned basement plumbing and HVAC layout to maximize finishable space in the basement. This fully professionally water-proofed lower level has natural light and offers ample options for expanded living space with working lower level bath. The renovated hall bath is period inspired with black and white tile and the entire interior painting project was just completed to present a turn-key opportunity to live comfortably from the moment you close! Everyone loves pedestrian-friendly, award winning Decatur and your stroll to the square from this front yard is outstanding. The proximity to the historic Decatur cemetery (Ms. Ross's final resting place) is unbeatable with adjacent Glenlake Park's playground, dog park, pool, tennis courts and acres of greenspace awaiting your exploration. The cottage grounds (approx. .25 acre) boasts an oversized backyard with a dozen old growth camelia bushes bursting with winter color, 2 protected Palm trees, a Victory garden freshly tilled for your 'garden-to-table' healthy 2024 Decatur lifestyle. My favorite feature is the open air side porch uniquely located for maximum southern exposure for an amazing stargazing setting. Sidewalk stroll all over downtown Decatur for destination dining, shopping, pubs, art galleries and gazebo performances plus the city's award winning public schools. All the best starts from this doorstep.
