My new listing in Tucker has it all: quiet cul-de-sac location, ridiculously large back yard, designer kitchen, spa-like bathrooms, gleaming hardwood floors, built-in speakers throughout and a brand new roof. It’s a good one. A really good one.
That said, my words can only do it so much justice. I turned directly to the source: the homeowner. Our Q and A, below. Full listing information here, and to schedule a tour, you know where to find me.
Q. Your backyard rules. Tell me why you love it?
A. It is great for entertaining. We have a yearly Oktoberfest and invite friends and family. Actually, we can either do that in the front or back of the house. We had a TinkerBell Party for our daughter when she turned 4. We put up a great tent for shade and have room for the kids to run!
Q. What do you love about your house?
A. I LOVE the bathtub. Before we had the old cast iron tub. It was tiny and didn’t keep the water hot. Now, with the fiberglass tub the water will stay warm for hours – trust me! Also, it is deeper than normal ones with the perfect recline on the back. Turn up the built-in speakers in there, turn off the lights and light some candles for hours of relaxation. It is my perfect retreat place and what I’ll miss the most of the house.
Q. Sell me on life “ATP”? (Editor’s Note: Forget ITP or OTP… ATP is where it’s at)
A. You can escape on the weekends out of town and don’t have to worry about trying to get out of intown. We are close to the highways so it is easy to get anywhere – as long as Atlanta traffic is cooperating. I basically give myself 30 minutes to get anywhere – Downtown, Cobb Galleria, deep into the Decatur ‘burbs, Brookhaven, etc. I think the closer in you are to town, the less Southern and old country you have to deal with. We still can get hippie stuff – like a weekly Farmers Market on Main Street, the Farm Mobile comes by weekly, Mother Nature and the Tucker Meat Market are within walking distance. The co-op delivers fresh produce to Mother Nature that we can pickup weekly during the summer. – You just don’t think those things can happen once you cross 285, but they do! Oh – and the DeKalb Farmer’s Market is just a quick drive down 78 or you can go just as far and hit Stone Mountain the other way on 78.
Q. 24-hours of binge eating within a five minute drive- where are you going?
A. Some people love Blue Ribbon Grill. Others love Los Hermanos. More love Matthews Cafeteria and there is always Growler Time on Main Street for good beer to take home when you can’t find anything good to eat.
Don’t miss the one, folks.
