This classic 1925 craftsman was the first home to be built on McLynn Avenue in Atlanta’s Morningside neighborhood. The home was renovated to the studs and significantly expanded by previous owners in the mid-1990’s. The present owners have added a modern flair with a stunning kitchen & den renovation in 2014 and a newly renovated primary ensuite bath.
The main floor features a modern open floor plan with hardwood floors throughout. A custom-built solid mahogany front door welcomes you into the Living Room which is accented by the original brick (decorative) fireplace, built-in shelving and plantation shutters. The attached Sunroom has thermal pane windows, terracotta tile flooring and offers a bright southern exposure.

The Kitchen island has a quartzite countertop and features a Wolf 5-burner gas cooktop, Wolf E Series oven, Subzero freezer drawers and a Miele telescoping range hood. Both side workspaces feature Caesarstone quartz countertops and porcelain tile backsplash. The window-side workspace has a deep stainless-steel sink with disposal, Miele dishwasher and Subzero beverage fridge with icemaker. The opposite workspace has Subzero refrigerator, Miele speed oven, large pantry with sliding shelves and prep sink with water filtration and disposal. The Breakfast Bar easily seats 4 people and offers additional hidden storage and outlets.

The back bedroom is reminiscent of the home’s original sleeping porch and has a large walk-in closet that extends under the stairs.
Upstairs there are 2 extra-large bedroom suites with vaulted ceilings and ensuite baths. The primary owner’s suite has windows on 3 sides and a French door to a balcony overlooking the backyard. A hallway off the Primary Bedroom is flanked by 2 large closets and leads to the newly renovated bath.
