Hallelujah, I'm Home! That's what you'll say when you see the new custom KitchenSmith kitchen and adjoining 28X13 family room. This Johnson Estates home in the Morningside area was specially built in 1931 for Jess Walton, a famed gamesman and photographer. The Walton family enjoyed this custom home for many years and hosted several neighborhood events, which were sometimes fondly described in the local newspaper. The current owners (probably only the 3rd owners of the home) tastefully renovated the home while maintaining much of its original character and warmth. So this is a rare opportunity for you to own a real gem on one of Johnson Estates most sought after streets.

Multiple archways, tongue & groove ceiling, and classic square tile floor enhance the charm of this very large, private porch. Generally the porch tiles on classic homes are cracked and missing. But not on this incredibly solid home with granite foundation; the tiles are beautiful! And what better street to sit on your porch than Noble Drive--one of the quietest, most sought after streets in Morningside.

Johnson Estates 3
Entertain friends or enjoy a quiet evening by the real wood burning fireplace in this nice size living room with tall ceilings, hardwoods, wall sconces, and two-sides windows.

Johnson Estates 4
The home has a very natural flow, with expansive doorways leading from one room to the other.

Johnson Estates 5
The dining room seats 8 comfortably, and more during the holidays. The crystal chandelier is beautiful, and believed to be original to the home. Two walls of oversized divided-glass windows, hardwood floors, and hunky molding make this room especially pleasant.

Wow! Now this is a kitchen. Custom designed by KitchenSmith and it shows. Enjoy all the professional, most efficient appliances including Bosch dishwasher, Bosch double oven with convection, Bosch 5-eye stove with downdraft, Kitchenaid side-by-side refrigerator with filtered water & ice in the door, Kitchenaid Stainless built in microwave, and country farm sink.

Johnson Estates 7
Even Emeril would be envious of this kitchen. The kitchen is centrally located, and flows logically into the dining room, adjoining office, or family room. Like the rest of the house, it has hardwood floors and tall ceilings.

Johnson Estates 8
A custom designed office space adjoins the kitchen. With space for a computer, lateral files, desktop, and storage so you can easily stay organized.

A 28X13 family room spans the entire back of the house. Your options are limitless with such hard to find open space in an historic home. Spend relaxing time with family and friends enjoying 3 sides of windows with plenty of sunlight, closets, and hardwoods as well. A full bedroom with windows, and a full bathroom adjoin the family room. A full size staircase to the upstairs also adjoins this room.

Johnson Estates 10
A central hallway leads you to three bedrooms, a bonus room, a full bathroom, storage closets, and laundry room. Upon entering the upstairs, you'll notice the very rare and unusual "Pecky" Cypress. "Pecky" Cypress is commonly referred to as the wood that will "wear out eternity" because of its durability. It can withstand almost any climatic condition. Used commonly for furniture and accents, the original owner Jess Walton is said to have insisted on its extensive use upstairs.

Johnson Estates 11
The master bedroom is quite large and able to accommodate a king bed and other accompanying furniture. With 3 windows overlooking the quiet backyard, and two huge closets, this makes the perfect retreat to relax at the end of a long day. Like the other bedrooms, the master has hardwood floors.

Johnson Estates 12
The 2nd bedroom is also large, with plenty of natural daylight, closet space, and hardwood floors.

Johnson Estates 13
The 3rd bedroom offers built in storage, naturral sunlight, hardwood floors, and an adjoing bonus room.

Johnson Estates 14
This large bonus room has a cozy gas fireplace and can be used as a nursery, playroom, guest room, art studio, exercise room, media room, library, office, or anything else you need another room for.

Johnson Estates 15
What!? A full upstairs laundry room in an historic home? This is too good to be true! Lots of additional storage space as well.

Johnson Estates 16
Complaints from buyers searching for an historic home include lack of closet space, no garage, small rooms, outdated kitchen, and laundry in the basement. This home has more closet and storage space than a new home in Alpharetta, an upstairs laundry area, big functional rooms that flow well, a kitchen that could be featured in a designer magazine, AND A GARAGE! Honey, get the keys and the check book we need to go buy this home.

Johnson Estates 17
A play area is located behind the garage.

Johnson Estates 18
An additional work and storage area is located behind the garage.

Johnson Estates 19
Flat backyard is low maintenance and has enough space for entertaining, play area, gardening, or relaxing.

Johnson Estates 20
This home is located only 2 doors down from Noble Park--one of Atlanta's best parks. The perfect place to pass frisbee, have a picnic, play with your dog, watch your kids enjoy the playground, or just do nothing and relax.

Johnson Estates 21
Now that's curb appeal. Notice the granite foundation, brick on all 4 sides, shutter accents, decorative lamps, winding sidewalk, elevated porch, and architectural shingle roof. Other features include tall basement for storage, fenced backyard, and yard sprinkler system. This home has been very well maintained and tastefully renovated. The 3 words that best describe this home are: Solid, Spacious, and Comfortable. Call or e-mail me anytime to see this home for yourself.
