Tucked away in The Highlands of Sandy Springs, 7615 Glisten Avenue is a three-story mini-palace with 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and oodles of flexibility.
Trying to buy just the right home Intown is a challenge. Downright frustrating in many cases. Those reports of over a "thousand people a month" moving Intown are true, and housing inventory is at an all-time low. Many buyers are left with the feeling they will have to snap up almost anything that pops up or be left behind. If you've had the discipline to wait for the ideal home to appear, your patience may be rewarded here.
The main takeaway of 7615 Glisten Avenue NE, a mini-palace tucked away in The Highlands of Sandy Springs, is flexibility. With 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, all anchored by oodles of hangout space spread across three floors, there’s more than enough room for a (large) family to do its own unique thing, with square footage left over for pursuits both personal and professional.
Before diving into the tour, a little about the location. Located four miles north of the Perimeter, the Highlands neighborhood opens right onto Roswell Road, while less than a half mile away is the onramp to the 400 Parkway. No matter which way you slice it, access to the heart of Atlanta is a breeze, and you get to hang your hat well away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
But, back to the home itself. It starts on the main floor, through the brick-lined entryway that leads into the foyer — a sort of hub that opens into a quaint, front-facing family room, the main floor’s half bath, and access to the two-car garage, as well as the basement level (more on that in a moment). But walk straight ahead for the centerpiece of 7615: an oversized, wide-open central space where (we have a feeling) the majority of household time is going to be spent: a fireplace-equipped living room flows effortlessly into an expansive hyper-modern chef’s kitchen that boasts dark wood custom cabinetry, stainless appliances, stone countertops, and a centerpiece island that serves as a natural gathering spot for nights spent entertaining. The west-facing dining area enjoys some serious natural light; for times of year when the weather is agreeable, the back door opens onto a sprawling, red-toned back porch that overlooks a privacy fenced, impeccably manicured back lawn.
Downstairs, a modular finished basement space is almost a home in-and-of itself. A secondary living room could serve any variety of purposes. Our gut says home theater for the ultimate Netflix binging den, but feel free to use your imagination when it comes to defining your notion of “rec-room.” On this level as well, a pair of bedrooms share a full bath, with enough space left over for an unfinished nook that’s separate enough from the rest of the home to serve as a catchall for random utility storage. Leading onto the lawn, a back patio rests underneath the porch for a hangout spot (plus a tiki bar?) with a little extra shade.
On the top floor, the east-facing primary bedroom dominates with square footage to spare and a tasteful recessed ceiling. Adjoining, a tile-lined master bath gives a wide berth for morning routines (evening hours will definitely see some time taking advantage of the deep garden tub). Down the hall, another pair of bedrooms each contain their fair share of closet space, while a single bathing space separates a pair of sinks, each in their own room: a dream come true for teenage siblings.
A family home in the truest sense of the word, 7615 Glisten Avenue balances modernity and taste with more than enough modularity to adapt to evolving lifestyles. $549,900
