Avondale East is a quaint, craftsman-style single-family community with modern accents located just outside the city limits of historic Avondale Estates. Future residents of Avondale East will be well within range to enjoy shopping for farm fresh products every Sunday at the Avondale Estates local Famers Market, and even partake in the arts with the Avondale Arts Alliance close to home.
Shannon Wilmot, an on-site agent for Avondale East, says that the location is her favorite quality about the property.
“It’s so close to Decatur,” says Wilmot. “Everything you want to get to in Atlanta, you’re close to it, yet you’re not in the middle of it, so it’s a prime location. You’ve got space. You’ve got driveways. You’ve got yards. You know, things that you can’t find when you live in the city.”
Avondale Estates is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its charming architectural character and landscaping. The location of Avondale Estates allows its residents to experience small-town living at its finest, while also being only minutes away from downtown Decatur and downtown Atlanta. The residents of Avondale Estates get to enjoy the best of both worlds, never lacking in variety of neighborhood parks and restaurants close to home.
Wilmot says that Avondale Estates is a very distinct area.
“It’s a very historic place,” Wilmot says. “Even the signs are wrought iron with cool designs on them. Once you’re in Avondale Estates, you know you’re in Avondale Estates. The vibe changes into a historical atmosphere, yet you still have all those modern things there that you would have in an up-and-coming modern place, but with a historical feel.”
Avondale Estates also offers a rich culture and close-knit community for its residents with its various clubs, recreational activities, and events.
