The Peters Company just listed this beautifully renovated 3bed/2bath classic in historic Decatur. It's located in the Great Lakes neighborhood which is in the Clairemont Historic District, and the home is incredibly convenient to Emory Hospital, DeKalb Medical Hospital, and CDC.  This charmer has been renovated and updated front to back, side to side, and a recent addition makes for an expanded kitchen and an oversized master suite.  The home sits back tucked away from the road, and the lot is large and deep with a deck overlooking the private fenced in yard.  You must see this home. You're going to love it, and it won't last long!  To see this listing, please contact Andy at 770.634.2782 or for an easy appointment.
