Congrats, Kristen & Jacob on Purchasing your Decatur Ranch!

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

photo-1Kristen and Jacob, congratulations on buying your very first home! When we first met with Kristen and Jacob, they knew exactly what they wanted, and where they wanted to live. However, the market had other plans. After visiting various areas and adjusting criteria, Kristen and Jacob exercised their patience and finally landed an amazing ranch home in the Wilson Woods neighborhood in Decatur – exactly where they wanted to be! We’re so happy you found a home for yourselves (and your new puppy!). Congrats, again!

Druid Hills Home :: Modern Day Luxury Renovated with Historic Charm

Storybook setting. Originally built in Druid Hills in 1950, this immaculate renovation reminds us of a much simpler Atlanta. But don’t let this little trip down memory lane fool you!  This home, nestled in beautiful Druid Hills and in the shade of the Fernbank hardwood forest, is equipped with everything and more that you’d expect from a new home, at a fraction of the price.  You will love being able to walk to Druid Hills Golf Club or the Fernbank Science Center and the Fernbank Forest Recreational Center. There is amazing park space all around you! Forget carpool because you can walk to Fernbank Elementary, one of the area’s most desirable elementary schools. Emory University is within a mile of your front door, and downtown Decatur, with all your favorite hot spots, is a hop, skip, and a jump away. Creating excellent curb appeal and thankful shade in the summertime, beautiful mature oak trees enhance the lot. The backyard is private and flat, perfect for relaxing on the stone patio, grilling, entertaining, and playing. Even your vehicle will love this home considering the attached carport.

Character never goes out of style. Greeted by rich hardwood floors carried throughout and tied together with traditional trim work, warm custom paint and quality finishes, you instantly feel at home here. You will love the natural light from the large windows and the open flow created by the combination of the main living and dining room. The classically designed kitchen includes glass accented cabinets, granite counters, a breakfast area, and original heart pine floors. The bathrooms here are legendary, as if straight out of a Restoration Hardware catalog, including clean lines, chrome fixtures, and subway tile. The home includes a master bedroom with its own renovated bathroom, two separate and spacious bedrooms, and an additional renovated hallway bathroom for a traditional three-bedroom/two-bathroom floor plan.

Your home is waiting. Time is not on your side. This beautifully updated charmer in one of Atlanta’s most desirable areas will not last long, and once you see it, you will understand why.

If you are considering an Atlanta relocation or a Decatur relocation, give us a call at 770-634-2782.  It would be our pleasure to work with you!

Just Listed in Decatur’s Springdale Heights

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Nestled in Springdale Heights and built in 1947, this beautifully renovated home reminds us of a simpler Decatur. This charmer is equipped with the updates you would expect from a brand new home, at a fraction of the price. Within easy walking distance of downtown Decatur, all your favorite hot spots are at your back door.  Originally three bedrooms, the home’s third bedroom has been transformed into an updated and conveniently located dining room off the kitchen. The home could easily be transformed into three bedrooms by taking in the dining room or “popping” the top with the expansive walk-up attic. The possibilities are endless! With all the benefits of being so close to the city of Decatur but none of the steep city taxes to complain about, being in an unincorporated DeKalb home has never felt so good.

Clean, clean, clean! This home has been well kept through the years both inside and out. The exterior of the home benefits from new exterior doors, brand new paint and mature landscaping. A stroll through the front door and you are quickly greeted by rich, real, history-filled hardwood floors and warm, neutral colors. Natural light pours into the spacious rooms, and the fireplace is the focal point in the main living room, providing cozy comfort on those cold days. Custom touches include recently painted walls, a well updated kitchen with travertine tile floor, new cabinets, quartz countertops, and two beautifully updated bathrooms. These features represent unique upgrades over the competition in this price range. The large master bedroom features an inviting master bath with a  freshly tiled floor and a walk-in closet. You will love having the laundry room right off the master bedroom as well.  The secondary bedroom provides plenty of space.  As mentioned earlier, the walk-up attic is currently an amazing storage space rivaling any of today’s basements, but it is the long-term possibilities that could prove promising for the creative renovator. Lastly, the fenced and level backyard is incredibly private, usable, and includes a great patio and deck perfect for your grilling and entertaining enjoyment. You can’t miss the amazing living space in the backyard for enjoying the beauty, serenity, and shade.

Your home is waiting.  Time is not on your side. This beautifully updated charmer will not last long, and once you see it, you will understand why.

Congratulations on your Druid Hills Decatur Home!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

What a pleasure to work with Katy and Dan over the past several months!  It all begin when a friend (Thanks, Scott) referred Katy and Dan our way.  Andy met with them, listed their home in the Laurel Hills neighborhood of Decatur, and sold it a couple of months later.  Click here to see their past home. 

When it came to looking for a new home, Katy and Dan were fun for us!  They had a vision.  While many home buyers want a move in ready home, Dan and Katy didn’t mind work.  They wanted a home that they could make their very own.  And, lucky for Katy – Dan is HANDY!  Katy and Dan loved living in Decatur so much in their past Laurel Hills home – they decided to stay.   They purchased a fantastic Decatur estate in the Druid Hills neighborhood.  An added bonus for Katy and Dan – The home is 1.2 miles from Brickstore Pub, 0.9 miles to Taqueria del Sol, and a nice walk to Downtown Decatur. 

Andy and I are anxiously awaiting the tour when they put their plans into action.  This Decatur ranch has fantastic curb appeal, an elongated kitchen with an eat-in area, 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, a large screened in porch, AND a FULL basement that is partially finished with a living space, kitchenette, bedroom and bath.  Best part yet:  Katy and Dan plan to rent out the basement apartment for a little extra revenue. 

If I must say so myself, Andy did an EXCELLENT job negotiating a great price on this Druid Hills home – the 2nd lowest priced sold home in the past 12 months.  Our buyers, Katy and Dan, are thrilled!  And, the sellers are pleased that their late mother’s home is in good hands.  A win-win!

If you are looking for an agent that can negotiate an excellent value, look no further.  You are in good company with The Peters Company.  770-634-2782.

Modern Day Luxury Renovated to Original Craftsman Charm

Old is new again. Originally built in 1930, this immaculate renovation reminds us of a much simpler Decatur. The custom paint and trim fit perfectly and help restore the home to original cottage charm. But don’t let this little trip down memory lane fool you!  This Decatur home, nestled in historic Decatur Heights, is equipped with everything and more that you’d expect from a brand new home, at a fraction of the price.  Within easy walking distance of downtown Decatur, all your favorite hot spots are at your back door.  Also, since you have easy access to Ponce de Leon, the main thoroughfares and public transportation are convenient.  The fenced corner lot provides great privacy and enhances the overall function and curb appeal of the home, and you are districted for the desirable Winnona Park Elementary School within the City Schools of Decatur cluster.

An open floorplan in a 70 year old house? Absolutely! You will love the natural light, flow and openness created in the main living room, dining room, and gourmet kitchen running the length of the home. The rich original hardwood floors and warm custom paint finishes tie everything together. The original fireplace has been brought back to life with modern day gas logs. The tiled kitchen features the granite countertops and counter space you have been looking for with a complimenting tile backsplash and extra outlets for convenience. In addition, the custom cabinets are painted to accent and give the kitchen an ultra updated appeal. The home includes three separate bedrooms along with two separate bathrooms. The updated motif is continued in the baths. No more perfect example than the crisp and clean master bathroom including tasteful tile and an oversized master shower complete with two shower heads. The guest bath includes modern designer light and bath fixtures and includes a classically unique antique slipper tub.

If you’re considering a Decatur relocation or an Atlanta relocation, this may just be the home for you!  What a perfect commute to Emory, Agnes Scott, Decatur Square, CDC, Downtown Atlanta, Midtown Atlanta, Buckhead, or Brookhaven.  This home is also nearby entertainment, shopping, and restaurant destinations such as DeKalb Farmer’s Market, Eddie’s Attic, Watershed Restaurant, Brick Store Pub, Wahoo! A Decatur Grill, and Fernbank.

Your home is waiting. Time is not on your side. This beautifully updated charmer will not last long, and once you see it, you will understand why.  Click on the flyer below for the full PDF image.

JUST LISTED :: Affordable Decatur Brick Ranch in Immaculate Condition :: Laurel Hills

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009


The Peters Company has just listed this fantastic buy in Decatur! Click HERE for the full page two sided flyer.

You’ll want to see this beautiful home for the location in Laurel Hills, but you’ll stay for the condition. This three bedroom one and a half bath traditional 4-sided brick ranch is decorated with cottage charm, well cared for, and in move-in ready condition. You’ll love being so close to everything inside the perimeter with easy access to downtown Decatur, CDC, Emory University and Hospital, the VA Hospital, I-85, I-285, and Highway 78. Living in Decatur is a joy, but paying those taxes is not. You’ll appreciate living close to downtown Decatur and everything this great area presents, but without the higher City of Decatur taxes. Asbury Court is a wonderfully quiet cul-de-sac street with friendly neighbors.

One of the highlights of your new home includes the updated and cook friendly cottage kitchen with new sink, oven, stove top, tile backsplash, beautiful wooden butcher block countertops, recessed lighting, custom built desk, crown molding, renovated cabinets, and custom paint. The updated full bathroom is located in the center of the home, and the master bedroom includes a convenient private half bath. You’ll find that storage space and closet space is surprisingly large for a home built in this era. The whole home is networked, and the wiring for the entertainment center in the main living room has been hidden from plain view to allow for more living space. The rich and original hardwood floors accent the home’s charm and history.

The curb appeal of this Decatur gem is obvious from the moment you drive up. The sturdy brick exterior of the home is enhanced by the large, fully fenced lot with a second fenced in area at the rear of the property perfect for your pets. You’ll enjoy outdoor entertaining on the recently sealed deck as you look out on the beautiful blooming azaleas and well manicured green grass. On those rainy days, you’ll be glad you have a two car carport, which also includes a storage space/workshop that runs the width of the carport. Pride is the first thing that comes to mind when you see this home. It’s been meticulously maintained and updated through the years both inside and out. Welcome home!
