 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.
