California Tri-level!
4 BEDROOM / 2.5 Bath Home with Full Basement

This lovely mid-century modern home sits on over a half-acre wooded lot in the sought-after Northcrest neighborhood. The abundance of natural light, open floorplan, vaulted pine tongue-and-groove ceilings, exposed beams, brick planters, and other original architectural detailing make this a truly wonderful living space.

Enter through the French front doors to reveal the original tiled foyer, brick planter and see-thru wood screen, which separates the foyer from the living room. A second brick planter with an overhead skylight defines the space from the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has the original walnut cabinetry and a picture window overlooking the rear multi-level deck and fenced backyard. The separate dining room opens to the sunroom addition, with access to the deck/backyard. The current owners installed rich oak hardwood floors in all of the main level, aside from the vintage tiled foyer, and hallway. The vaulted ceilings continue through the upper level. All three upstairs bedrooms have like-new Berber carpet. The neutral white tiled “Hollywood Bath” (one and a half baths) is accessible from both the master bedroom and hallway. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, ceiling fan, skylight, and glass sliders that lead to the deck. The lower level features a fourth bedroom, full bath, a den with an exposed brick wall, brick-faced wood-burning fireplace, a wet bar, andg lass sliders leading to the large front patio. The unfinished basement has both an interior and exterior entrance, washer/dryer hookups, and an unobstructed space made possible via a steel i-beam. The home has copper plumbing. The HVAC was replaced in 08/04. The original Nutone whole-house intercom system and radio also works in the basement. There is a separate utility room in the carport.

With the abundance of mature foliage, contemporary homes, large lots, a swim/tennis club, proximity to I-85, I-285, the CDC, shopping, and much more…it’s easy to see why this year both The Atlanta Journal/Constitution and Creative Loafing named the Northcrest subdivision a destination neighborhood and one of the best examples of mid-century architecture in the metro area. DeKalb county taxes were a low $2209 in 2005. For more images, visit:
