Faboo EAV Renovation!

734 Blake • East Atlanta
You need to see this gorgeous 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home in East Atlanta in person.  The sleek modern kitchen is amazing!  A cook’s dream– tons of cabinet and counter space, under-cabinet lighting, center island, gas range, and it opens right to the living space so nobody’s left out of the fun.  The master suite is equally as nice with its double vanity, spacious glass-enclosed rainfall shower, and large walk-in closet.  A large deck overlooks the fenced back yard, and there’s even an outdoor storage building as well as tons of attic storage.  Give us a call and let’s check this one out!  Click here or on the image above for more info.

East Atlanta Village Neighborhood
Atlantans today know “The EAV” in its present incarnation as the hip and happening funky bohemian neighborhood it is now, but this little berg’s seen a lot over the years.  Click here or on the image above for an interesting little article that touches not only on “The Village” of today, but also its past.

Yeah, it’s awfully cold outside right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside! Check out all the fun going on around town this weekend:

 Exceptional Value!

2531 Batavia St • East Point
This neighborhood may be one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets.  A gorgeous area–minutes from the airport and downtown, yet far enough from both to make it a great place to put down roots.  And this expertly renovated 3BR home is an unbelievably fantastic value!  Hardwood floors, fireplace, expanded living area…and the superb kitchen remodel just sends it right over the top!

Brake Pad Restaurant and Bar

Pretty catchy name for a restaurant in an old service station, right?  About as catchy as Universal Joint, her sister location in Oakhurst, but this family of restaurants and pubs doesn’t have to rely on their clever themes to reel folks in.  Besides being fun and unique hangouts, they also happen to serve some really bang up grub!  Make sure to  check them out while you’re visiting East Point!  Click on the image above for more information and menu.

Wait…Did They Say Spirits?!?

Oh, Yes They Did!  Come on out and enjoy this once a year live music festival in Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery.  It’s sure to be a spirited event featuring live music on two stages, performers throughout the grounds, complimentary tours among the final resting places of some of Atlanta’s most colorful characters, and you can even have your fortune told by Atlanta’s own Robyn Avalon.   Since it’s not a festival without food, bring your appetite and dine of tasty festival fare provided by some of the city’s most popular food trucks.  And, if the spirit so moves you, there’ll be plenty of cold beer and wine on hand.  Proceeds go to suport the beautiful green space that is our own Oakland Cemetery.  Click on the image above to find out more about the event.

Peachtree Hills Festival Of The Arts

Even the name sounds classy, right?!  The Peachtree Hills/Ansley Park area is home to one of the most enthusiastic art buying communities in the city, so it stands to reason they’d have fantastic art and artisans at their festival.  So many wonderful painters, sculptors, and photographers will be displaying, as well as fabulous jewelers and other artists who work in glass, leather, and metal.  As many as 150 fine crafts people will be offering their unique creations, and this year they’ve added something really special:  The Living Social Wine Festival at nearby Atlanta Decorative Arts Center.  Click on the image above to learn more about this festival unique among festivals.

 Ormewood Park Bungalow!

1064 Delaware Ave • $499,900

Spectacular inside and out, this historic Craftsman bungalow on one of Ormewood Park’s best streets will be hitting the market soon, but it won’t last long. This thoughtful renovation retains the historic character while providing all the modern conveniences, as well as energy-wise upgrade throughout. Features include original unpainted woodwork, heart pine floors, three gas fireplaces, plantation shutters, a master suite on the main floor with an exquisite master bath, recently renovated kitchen, and a large upstairs bedroom/loft (easily converted to two rooms) with a full bath. Out front there’s an over sized rocking-chair front porch overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden, but the big payoff is right out back, with the extra-large fenced yard, a relaxing screened porch, 2-story workshop with lots of extra storage space, plus a saltwater swimming pool and hot tub.  This house is soon to be listed, but give us a call and we’ll see about a preview.
