Welcome to this historic California Craftsman in Decatur’s vibrant MAK Historic District. Lovingly revitalized in 2004 to maintain and enhance the architectural integrity of the 1916 home while still providing cozy, contemporary functionality, this exceptional property earned both the Decatur Design Award and the Leila Ross Wilburn Design in the same year. This is a one-of-a-kind property that all enthusiasts of Arts and Crafts architecture will deeply appreciate. A true beauty waiting for a new owner (only 2 previous owners in 107 years!) Come and enjoy a wonderful life in this unique masterpiece. All the rooms of the home have preserved the integrity of the original craftsman details: box beams, mission-style pillars, original woodwork throughout the living areas, a Stone Mountain granite fireplace with wood stove, restored glass-fronted bookcases etched with iconic “cattails,” sconces and chandeliers and light switches all true to the era of the home. In renovating the property, the focus was on recreating the beautiful farmhouse kitchen of the original home with cream-colored cabinets and a cozy breakfast nook, adding quartz countertops and a pastry counter with a dedicated sink. In addition, the new windows replicate the original divided light design. Following the principals coined in author/architect Sarah Susanka’s book, “The Not So Big House” in which a beautifully contained house lives large, there are many cozy spots to get-away and have privacy while at the same time, an open and airy feel is present in every room due to multiple doors and balconies that open onto generously sized porches on the front and back of the home, and even off the primary bedroom…where a charming sleeping porch is a perfect place to start the day. Upstairs is a large primary bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. The two additional bedrooms that mirror one another, include built-in window seats with library shelves that overlook the backyard Additional features not to be missed are a sweet and functional mudroom, a game closet in the family room, solar panels and electric car charger, plus alley access for a future garage or ADU. The lush backyard has been perfectly cared for with two levels and winding paths, an outdoor fire pit, and for the urban homesteader…a chicken coop. An oasis in the city. Located within walking distance of the bustling Oakhurst neighborhood, and in the Decatur school system 153 Kings Highway is a home to love for years to come.
