Meadowbrook Acres in Decatur Home Sales
January-June 2017. By Kevin Polite, Solid Source Realty, Inc.
Meadowbrook Acres is a small neighborhood tucked into the northeast corner of zip code 30032 in Decatur. It’s become quite a hotspot of activity for remodeled homes in the $200,000+ price range. The main streets that run through Meadowbrook Acres are Beech Drive, Betty Circle, Bobbie Lane, Convair Lane, Celia Way, Tacoma Way and Bonway Drive.
This neighborhood is full of Mid-Century ranch homes that have either been renovated or are waiting to be renovated. Just in the last month several homes have sold over $200,000 and none were on the market more than 7 days. I think that’s shows there is interest in this area, however, there just weren’t any renovated homes until recently that were available for sale. Rents for remodeled homes are above $1,200/month.
Meadowbrook Acres is next to Belvedere Park, however, the draw has been it’s proximity to downtown Decatur, however, you avoid the taxes of City of Decatur which can be 40-50% more, and that’s if you can even afford anything over there now.
Downtown Decatur has become a foodie destination and the fact that you hop right on and of the Decatur Marta station makes it even more accessible. In Meadowbrook Acres you are a short Uber/Lyft ride away or a 10-minute drive.
Kirkwood isn’t far away either and you can be near the new restaurants at 2nd and Hosea or the restaurants in downtown Avondale Estates.
If you work at DeKalb Hospital, DeKalb County, Emory, CDC or Children’s Healthcare Hospital you will be a short drive away from work.
