About 1385 Brook Forest Dr NE

Amazing opportunity in sought-after LaVista Park offers spacious 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths with rare 2 car garage with Primary Suite on Main. Even more rare is the Nanny or In-Law Suite apartment (5th bedroom and bath) over garage. This full scale renovation included taking the top off existing home and adding a second story along with additional sq ft (tax record does not reflect renovation). This impressive home sits on a corner lot of two of the most desired streets in LaVista Park - Citadel and Brook Forest. A natural stone walkway punctuates the beautiful landscape and leads to an entry porch with tongue and groove ceiling. The entry foyer welcomes your guests and opens into a spacious living room with fireplace that is separated by a cased opening to the formal dining room beyond. The dining room features floor to ceiling custom display shelving and cabinetry. The bright and sunny family room features a fireplace and is completely open to the kitchen. The kitchen/family room opens out into the perfectly sized, private back yard. The kitchen features a quartzite topped island with seating, gas cooking, wine fridge, and lots of custom cabinetry for plenty of storage. Just off the kitchen, the mudroom connects the back yard and the garage and secondary side entrance. The main level features the PRIMARY suite which has a generous walk-in closet and luxurious bath. The bath features a separate tub and shower and a large double vanity. Upstairs there is a loft space/den perfect for tweens and teens as well as plenty of room for home office and two ensuite bedrooms that are generously sized. In the girl's bathroom, the built-in bookcase opens to reveal surprising attic storage. Above the large two car garage is a wonderful apartment that features a living space with built-in cabinets, granite countertop and mini-fridge. French doors open to a Juliet Balcony overlooking the yard. A large sliding barn door separates the bedroom and bath from the living space. Outside, the perfectly sized, flat, grassy backyard features a pavestone patio, gas firepit, play area and shed. The lush landscaping and fencing make this yard so private and terrific. Quality hallmarks throughout include 9' ceilings, solid hardwood floors. The renovation successfully left character and charm of an older house combined with a floor plan for today's lifestyle. LaVista Park is considered "Atlanta's most conveniently located neighborhood" with easy access to Buckhead, Morningside, Midtown, Emory, Virginia-Highland, Brookhaven, CHOA, Executive Park, MARTA, I-85, GA-400 and I-75.
