Lovingly modernized up with turnkey charm and nestled in a neighborhood that boasts convenience alongside a palpable sense of calm: that relays the spirit of this three-bedroom, two-bath split-level pretty nicely. Starting with the curb appeal, a nautically inspired contemporary blend of gray and white hues with dark navy accents. Gabled, spit-polished, and utterly cozy. A few steps up, you're through the front door, where high ceilings and wood tones play well with the flood of natural light (courtesy of a southern exposure). Alongside the dining area, the galley-style kitchen has received some special TLC: plenty of counter space with new stainless appliances. Check the stove, in particular. Gas burning and solid as a rock; if you're a cook, that'll be your best friend. A few steps down, to the family area. The informal lounge-around space. We have a feeling the TV will go on the wall, right over there, above the fireplace. A perfect spot for nights home with your favorite streaming service and take-out. And, beyond the self-contained utility/laundry room, access to the fully finished (extended) one-car garage. Upstairs, a trio of bedrooms. If you're checking the floor plan, the first one on the left is the best candidate for a dedicated home office. There's a pair of bathrooms, too: one is across the hall; the other is ensuite to the primary bedroom (which has some incredible vaulted ceiling action going on). Plenty of storage all around. Finally, the backyard. Already fenced in and dog-ready, with plenty of space beyond the patio to let the imagination run wild. A pool could be in the future. Or, a solid north-facing garden. Or both? With a straight shot to Covington Highway, the location offers access to the city and considerable local conveniences. Bonus points for households of a certain age -- Lithonia High School is so close you can see it from the driveway. You could not get a better design for your long-term use.
