Ideally situated just blocks from Buckhead’s world-class shopping and dining, 5 star hotels and Fortune 500 office space but tucked away beneath a dense green tree canopy, Peachtree Park truly feels like an oasis in the city. Unique amenities like a pocket playground and neighborhood garden along with a multitude of activities planned by an active civic association serve to promote a strong sense of community and belonging. In addition, Peachtree Park has no cut-through access so the streets are often filled with residents who stop to greet one another. Nestled on just shy of half an acre on one of Peachtree Park’s most desirable streets, this stately Georgian is one of only three original two-story homes in the neighborhood. While significant renovations and additions have taken place over the years, considerable care has been taken to preserve the historic charm and character while modernizing the property for today’s casual lifestyle. The result is a spacious and flexible floorplan which flows seamlessly into a multitude of enchanting outdoor living spaces. The inviting foyer is flanked by the original dining room and large fireside living room, each featuring arched openings and original sixteen pane windows. The inviting white kitchen features to-the-ceiling cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, Carrera marble countertops and subway tile backsplash, the original porcelain farmhouse sink with dual drain boards, Bosch stainless steel appliance suite including side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher and gas range, two warming drawers, undercounter Ice-O-Matic pearl ice maker, built-in desk, original custom corner cabinets and a center island with butcher block top. Adjoining the kitchen is a huge walk-in pantry/laundry room lined with built-in shelves and custom cabinetry. At the back of the house, a large dining space opens to an oversized den featuring a woodburning fireplace and a wall of custom built-ins and custom ship-lap detail. On one side of the den, double French doors lead to an impressive brick courtyard punctuated by a stone fireplace while a single stained door leads to a second, more intimate brick courtyard on the other side. A stylishly snug sunroom sits between the interior courtyard and the front stone porch, which is shaded by an attractive cedar pergola. The main level office features a vaulted ceiling, two closets and double French doors leading to the private side yard where mature azaleas, camelias, and jasmine add seasonal color and fragrance. Upstairs, the back of the house is devoted entirely to the primary suite including a light and airy bedroom, a handsome dressing area with a wall of built-ins, a spectacular walk-in closet and a recently renovated bathroom featuring handmade encaustic tile, a frameless shower with dual showerheads, two product niches and a footrest, a freestanding tub with views over the beautiful backyard, a private watercloset, a Euro washer/dryer, dual vanities and an abundance of custom cabinetry. At the front of the house, the original primary suite and two secondary bedrooms share two full bathrooms. In the detached carriage house, a custom steel door separates two garage bays adorned with a custom Argelith Clinker tile floor from the finished den. Permanent stairs to the unfinished second level provide the perfect opportunity to customize the space to suit a variety of needs such as a nanny or in-law suite or a home-based business. Adjoining the carriage house is a full bathroom which enjoys direct access from the deck of the heated, Pebbletec, saltwater pool and hot tub. Not to be missed are the custom shed, providing effortless storage of all your pool toys as well as a covered porch on which to relax while overlooking the turfed backyard, and a peaceful stone koi pond fed by a serene waterfall. This super desirable location also provides easy access to 400, 85 and MARTA and adjoins PATH400.
