Oakhurst is one of Atlanta’s hottest neighborhoods right now, but if you are in the market for a new home, you will quickly find out that the home prices have skyrocketed over the last two years and many of the homes have bidding wars and often sell for $10,000 to $50,000 over the asking price. If City of Decatur Schools are not your #1 priority, but living in a walkable (and fun) neighborhood is very important to you, we highly recommend that you consider Oakhurst’s neighbors, Kirkwood and East Lake. Many homes are only a 1/2 mile to a mile from the Oakhurst Village, so it’s an easy walk or bike ride to restaurants, shops and all the special events and festivals in the Village.
This week, the Nest Atlanta Real Estate Group listed one of those homes! It is only 0.7 miles from the heart of Oakhurst and is almost half the price of what a similar home would cost in the City of Decatur. Get the full scoop on this gem…

Walk to Oakhurst Village from this Atlanta Home for Sale
This newer Craftsman home has fantastic curb appeal and an inviting Southern-style porch that spans the front of the home. Once inside, you will be greeted by a light-filled foyer with gleaming hardwoods, high ceilings, crown molding, brand new plantation shutters and a view into the formal living and dining rooms. The kitchen is sure to please the family chef, with oodles of storage space, a butler’s pantry, vibrant granite countertops and breakfast bar. It also overlooks the family room, fireplace and large back deck, so it’s the ideal floorplan for entertaining friends and family.
Upstairs you will find three spacious bedrooms, including a dreamy master suite with lots of natural light pouring in and French doors that open to the covered porch. A walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom with double vanity, garden jetted tub and large shower seal the deal!
This fabulous home offers several things you may miss at first glance. First and foremost, a separate office area is located off the back deck. It’s perfect for those who work from home and need a bit of privacy! If storage space is important to you, you will find it throughout the home, as well as the sizable crawlspace and the large shed in the backyard. If a garage is on your wish list, the large backyard and alley access would make it easy to build! The current homeowners also installed an automatic gate system, allowing easy access to off-street gated parking.
If you decide to make this your new home, you’ll not only enjoy plenty of living space and a big fenced backyard, you will have some great neighbors and be part of the active, friendly East Lake — and Oakhurst — neighborhoods. This East Lake home for sale is also just a block away from the East Lake urban farm, and 0.7 miles from Oakhurst restaurants, parks and festivals. Most importantly, for those with children, this home is in the priority zip code for highly-ranked Drew Charter School, which is less than two blocks away. Welcome home to 24 2nd Avenue!
