We have a beautiful 4 bedroom 3 ½ bath modern farmhouse underway in the Winnona Park area of Decatur. This house is turning into a real showpiece. A stone’s throw away from Agnes Scott, it epitomizes the phrase “modern farmhouse.” With red weathered brick porch piers and highly sustainable standing seam metal roof—the exterior of the home is a sleeker interpretation of the classic farmhouse. Metal roofs like this are preferred by the US Environmental Protection Agency because they help to prevent solar heat gain thus making them “cooler.” They also provide a very unique aesthetic effect to the home’s exterior.

Inside are hardwood floors throughout, a spacious and open living space and 9’ ceilings. Shaker-style cabinets built from reclaimed wood rescued from another local historical home are a unique kitchen feature. Stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and an eat-in peninsula make the kitchen both functional and fashionable. The masterbath boasts an über-cool reclaimed clawfoot tub. Other desirable elements are a functional fireplace, oversized laundry room, generous closet spaces, mudroom, and a full basement for storage.

The home sits on a very large lot with a screened in back porch and fully fenced landscaped back yard. It’s truly an urban oasis—accessible to shopping and commercial areas yet set back generously from S. Candler Street thus preventing extraneous street noise. We are in the process of deciding between grey owl, harbor grey, campfire smoke or very light chromium for the exterior color. The choice could be yours if you’re interested in this very special property and want to arrange a pre-market preview by contacting Lewis & Redwine Realty at 404-897-1595.
