Located east of Edgewood, just north of I-20, Kirkwood hosts a large number of Victorian and Craftsman style homes along with new homes in traditional styles. In 2003, Downtown Kirkwood began a 1.5 million dollar facelift and has become what neighbors call “the small town in the big city,” hosting its own post office, newly constructed fire station, police precinct and public library. In addition to the amenities of Downtown Kirkwood, the neighborhood’s proximity to Downtown Decatur, Oakhurst and Little 5 Points offer additional dining and entertainment while I-20 offers easy access to other parts of the city.
AtlantaBen would live on…
After 5 years of renting apartments and condominiums in various parts of Atlanta while working our way through graduate degree programs, my wife (Carolyn) and I (Aaron) knew that we were ready for a house shortly after becoming newlyweds this year. Having rented most recently in Virginia-Highlands and being first time home buyers, homeownership was a very intimidating prospect for the both of us considering the quality of home we desired and the price levels of homes on the in-town market. Simply put, we were afraid we couldn’t have it all – in-town living, affordable price, great neighborhood, and a high-quality home as measured both in construction quality and contingent of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, and our desired “must have” features.
From the outset, working with the AtlantaBen Team has been incredibly easy, informative, and rewarding. Ben, Carrie, and the rest of team have established themselves, in our minds, as trusted advisors. These trusted advisors were extremely helpful throughout all steps of the home buying process, with particular emphasis on a well-tailored home-search and top-notch negotiating skills which helped us secure our dream home, in an incredible neighborhood, for a great price, with a closing and move in date that worked for us, and the proper due-diligence period to make sure the biggest financial decision of our lives was in fact the right one to be making.
