Posted by thunsicker in New Listing, Vinings on March 24, 2022
Update April 11th, 2022. This home closed this morning at $1,305,888. It had quite a few offers and several over a million while being listed at $899,900. It was a 7 day cash close and its closed. If you want to know how to get over asking for your home, give me a call. The marketing in this seller’s market is unique and your agent needs to know how best to handle the flurry of activity. If you’re on for over a few days, something is wrong. I can help. This is one I won’t forget for awhile!
Listed March 24th, offers due March 27th.
One of Vining’s classic homes in one of Vining’s most desirable neighborhoods is on the market for the first time in its history. This home was custom built with love and incredible attention to detail by the sellers, who are now looking to pass a bit of their family history forward.
With four sides of brick, this traditional home is timeless in more ways than one. Built to incorporate century-plus antique heart pine flooring from the seller’s parent’s home, this home is a legacy looking for its next caretaker.
The beautiful wide-plank flooring is found throughout most of the home. A traditional floorplan, the formal living spaces flank the entry hall and beautiful staircase, while the kitchen and keeping room look out over the greenery in the back yard.
Wainscotting, detailed woodwork, and functional shutters are among the lovely and well-kept details throughout the home. The rooms are beautifully proportioned with a lot of natural light in every room.
Fully renovated, the kitchen has high quality custom cabinetry, granite countertops and plenty of integrated lighting. Other amenities are a generous double sink, center island, and cabinet paneled appliances.
The kitchen and breakfast room also open onto the screened porch for 3 season indoor/outdoor living.
Adjacent to the kitchen is an enormous laundry room, with generous built-in storage, expansive granite worktops, and plenty of extra room for a freezer or beverage refrigerator.
The family room, anchored by an arched brick fireplace and hearth, opens onto the home’s expansive screened porch. The stunning heart pine flooring continues through this room as well, adding warmth and depth to the space.
Decks are great, but a screened porch in the south cannot be beat! Shaded in the summer and sheltered in cooler months, it becomes an extension of the home’s living areas with the added bonus of breeze and bird song.
While the home is at the top of a large hilly lot, the areas just off the screened porch and the walkout basement are flat and landscaped, making for a usable private space for bird watching or gardening and plenty of play area for children and pets.
With a full master suite on each floor, which include ensuite bathrooms and walk- in closets, living arrangements are flexible and future-proofed, ready for aging in place or multi-generational living.
The secondary bedrooms are also generously sized and there is room for expansion over the garage.
While the walk-out basement is finished and comfortable (with another brick fireplace to chase away any chill) there are stubbed-in utilities for another bathroom, ready for expansion. The home was custom built in 1975 and underwent extensive renovations about 15 years ago including mechanical upgrades, adding a house vac system and an automatic generator to seamlessly handle any power outages.
Set on almost an acre, the wooded lot is private and quiet. 4270 Lansdowne Drive is on a double cul de sac street in an already quiet neighborhood, meaning through traffic (and traffic noise in general) is non-existent.
Close to Cochise Club, Vinings Village, many of the areas best private schools, and in a quiet and walkable neighborhood, this home has a lot to offer, both in location and in impeccably maintained square footage. If you are interested in more details, visit the listing at my website and give me a call to set up an in-person viewing.

Vinings Real Estate Record!
Posted by thunsicker in Atlanta Real Estate, State of Real Estate Market, Vinings on April 20, 2021
The real estate market in Vinings has never been hotter! The spectacular home at 3753 Cochise Drive, Atlanta, GA closed just over 2 weeks ago for what I am hearing is the highest sale price ever in Vinings, somewhere just under $5 million!
And speaking of neighborhoods, this location is unbeatable: 5 acres of beautiful Chattahoochee riverfront property adjacent to the Cochise Swim and Tennis Club. And just across the river in Buckhead is Tyler Perry’s former home, another record-setting Atlanta real estate sale.
The Vinings real estate market has been consistently strong with great resale values over many years, and its always exciting to see that trend continue! I will post more details as they become available.

Buy into one of Vining’s best neighborhoods priced at lot value! Access to the amenities of the Cochise Club are available and there are sidewalks to Vining Village.
The home’s current footprint is a spacious 3,400 sq.ft, but the acre lot leaves plenty of room to expand.
A ranch style fixer on a large, quiet lot, the home will require a full remodel but the location is unbeatable! New homes on this street are priced around $2M + and a new development around the corner is selling at $1.8M and up. And finding a full acre lot in this area is really rare.
The mature trees on the lot are visible from the large sunroom; the back yard slopes away toward a creek, creating more private surroundings.
There are three bedrooms on the main floor along with the living areas and sunroom; a daylight basement included in the home’s square footage.
If you’re looking for a great lot to build your dream home, you couldn’t ask for a better spot with Vinings amenities and Cobb Co taxes! Take a look at my listing or call me to get all the details on the property survey and options for a remodel or new build. There is so much potential here!

Don’t sleep on this one! This beautifully maintained Vinings townhome looks brand new and has all the comforts of home. The James Creek neighborhood is always in demand so this home won’t last.
Because this townhome is extra wide, it has the feel of a stand-alone house. The main floor has an open feel but with distinct living and formal dining as well as a large, light-filled kitchen.
The eat-in kitchen is huge! Finished with granite and warm wood cabinetry, it has abundant counter space, high quality appliances, a kitchen island, and it still has room for a full sized breakfast table.
A fireplace and built-ins are the focal point of the living area; upgraded trims and panelling and hardwood floors give the room an elegant feel; and adjacent full sized formal dining space is on one side and access to the large deck is on the other.
The home’s bedrooms are just upstairs. The master has tray ceilings and generous proportions; light, bright paint and carpet in the bedroom makes the room feel even larger.
Dual vanities and a soaker tup and separate shower in the master bath just off the bedroom mean no more sharing when getting ready in the morning.
Two additional large bedrooms and a full bath and a laundry room complete the third floor.
The large deck off the living room overlooks a wooded area so you get visual ownership of a green space and privacy without the maintenance!
The home’s terrace level, adjacent to the garage, is fully finished and ready to be a rec room, home office, or gym.
Take a look at the listing here for all the details and give me a call to set up a viewing- I would love to help get you into this great Vinings townhome!

Posted by thunsicker in New Listing, Vinings on September 5, 2018
If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a French chateau, here is your chance, no passport required!
Located in Vinings in the prestigious Paces Lake community, this home is refined and elegant with all of the touches and finishes one would expect in a true custom home. With 4-inch thick European stucco, copper gutters and awnings, and a Vermont slate roof, the home’s exterior draws you in for a closer look. A cobblestone drive leads to the grand double door entrance and in to the foyer with a sweeping curved staircase and limestone floor.
The rest of the main floor is a perfect balance of rustic and refined with antique rough-planed pinewood floors or pale textured flagstones, rough hewn antique beamed and plastered ceilings in the keeping room and kitchen and wide plank pine ceilings in the more intimate living areas. Four brick-built fireplaces, including an outdoor fireplace on the bluestone terrace on the rear of the house, each with unique custom mantels, warm the airy living spaces.
All of the home’s main living areas open off the bluestone terrace through curving French doors; the keeping room with a limestone fireplace and arching beamed ceilings flows into the breakfast room and kitchen with beautiful Provenćal finishes and top quality Viking appliances.
A formal dining room and two more intimate living rooms, all with the tall curved French doors are full of detail and beautiful custom finishes.
The master suite is also on the main floor, again with doors opening to the terrace. Generous windows and French doors bring the outdoors inside.
Step into the master bath; you’ll find dual sinks, a deep soaker tub with a mosaic tile surround and separate spa shower, finished in a modern, serene palette, and a large custom walk-in closet.
Upstairs are three family bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and substantial closet space. Every bedroom is unique, one with a Juliet balcony, another with an alcove for study or yoga; but all are in keeping with the southern French style of the home, with generous windows, crown molding, and custom lighting.
Outside, the cobblestone drive leads through a port cochere with doors leading to the kitchen, and continues beyond to the rear of the house where there is a detached carriage house with a finished office on the second floor.
The terrace overlooks the flat, professionally landscaped lot with the perfect site for a pool. There is a partially finished daylight basement with exterior access, ready to be completed as a wine cellar, home gym or theatre.
Paces Lake is one of Atlanta’s premier luxury communities right in the heart of Vinings. just steps from the shopping and dining of Vinings and a short drive to Atlanta’s most distinguished private schools, Paces Lake feels like a world apart.
I will have the home open for your viewing pleasure on Tuesday, September 18th from 11-230 if you can stop by! Alternatively, Call me to set up a time to view this spectacular property in person. It truly must be seen to be appreciated. I’d love to answer any questions you may have!

CALLING ALL BUILDERS!
Cute ranch home on a 125 ft wide perfect lot in Vinings.
Solid, spacious, ranch style home is in great shape and shows beautifully with fresh paint and hardwoods in most of the house. With a deck and sunroom for the warmer months and a fireplace for the winter, it could be updated to be a really attractive, comfortable family home.
Four bedrooms mean there is space for the whole family and the unfinished full basement could almost double the square footage.
While this house has a lot of potential as a fixer or investment property, let me tell you, the real value is in the lot! This is exactly what everyone is looking for but is so hard to find in Atlanta these days: large, gently sloping, without obstructions or backing up to utility lines, busy roads, or railroad tracks. It’s private and in a neighborhood with mature trees, with a mixture of older homes and high end new homes.
This location is unbeatable and the site would make the perfect setting for your custom dream home. The property is priced at the lot’s value.
I just closed on another property on this street which you can look at for comps.
Call me to set up a viewing (and bring your builder!) or to get more details on this property with so much potential. I’d love to help you dream BIG at this exceptional location in Vinings.

Chicken Salad Chick Vinings Grand Opening – Worth the Wait!
Posted by thunsicker in Vinings on March 7, 2018
Well, this morning I waited in line for an hour in our freezing weather to be one of the 1st 100 customers of Chicken Salad Chick in The Station at Vinings shopping center, and boy was it worth the wait!
Chicken Salad Chick is located at 2810 Paces Ferry Road #310 next to Meehan’s and behind the QT. Its a large, homey space and they are ready to roll! I feel like I should be saying “y’all” as I describe this as it’s a Southerner’s dream come true with 12 varieties of Chicken Salad and Pimento Cheese and 7 types of salads, soups and more.
I was first introduced to Chicken Salad Chick at a Lacrosse tournament about a year ago when they were opening their Buckhead location on Roswell Rd. The store’s owner Lauren told me they’d been working since then to get this location open but they were going into a space that had never been a restaurant before, so it took quite a while to get it ready. There were many people from their corporate office on site today to greet the crowds and get the restaurant up and rolling.
They have lots of drawings today for Grand Opening and even more drawings thru the rest of this week; you can get the details on their Facebook Event Page. They are open Monday-Saturday, 10:30am-7pm. Stop by and check it out!
And as always, if you’d love to live in our wonderful walking village give me a call. There is actually one great deal right now that I’d love to tell you about that is SO close!
New in Vinings: The Front Porch Market and Project Studio
Posted by thunsicker in Vinings on March 6, 2018
We had a double Grand Opening this weekend in Vinings Village with The Front Porch of Vinings opening its new Market space; and Project Studio, an art class and workshop space in the market.
The new Market is located just below the home goods and women’s apparel portion of the shop and features local prepared food, cheeses, gifts, and fresh flowers.
If you miss “The Shoppe of Vinings” that we use to have in the Village, this is a great replacement. With cards, gifts, sweet and savory pies, cheeses from Georgia’s Sweetgrass Dairy, pickles and jams, it’s a real Southern experience. Owner Lisa Rieves told me she is trying to create a beautiful “General Store” vibe, carefully curated to serve the Vinings community. The Market will build specially designed gift baskets for you, or you can swing by and pick up a meal for a friend that just needs a night off from cooking. The Front Porch and the Market are a great one-stop shop for all kinds of gifts.
Also, sharing space in the Market is Project Studio where you can bring out your artsy side with a variety of art and home decor projects at all skill levels. Have a girls night out, baby shower, or date night! This is their second location (the first is in west Cobb) and they offer classes, creative art projects and seasonal decor in a beautiful space. Their classes are led by the owners or a staff of artists to guide you through the process.
Located just across Mountain Street from the Old Vinings Inn and just in front of the Paces Ferry Vet, both shops have great, easy parking. If you’re a long time resident, you’ll find a refreshing combination of the shop that was Stacy’s Kitchen combined with a splash of Lucy’s Market. And with the classes offered at Project Studio there is always something going on in the store.
Their Grand opening was this past weekend March 2nd and 3rd and they are open now on Tuesday – Saturday from 10-5. Project Studio also offers evening classes.
My son and I just picked up a pie, some local cheeses and a card for a party that he was going to on Saturday night. Swing by and check it out on your weekend walk around the Village!
We love living here and love to see more local-oriented shops coming into Vinings Village. Come check them out- there is really something here for everyone! And if you love our walking Village as much as I do, let me help you find your next home right here in our wonderful Village: Tina Hunsicker, realtor at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices April Real Estate Video Update for Vinings
Posted by thunsicker in Vinings on April 12, 2016
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has released its video market update for Vinings real estate in April.
What I notice most is that things that have been sitting on the market are finally moving as prices have dropped to accommodate what buyers are willing to pay. New listings coming on the market (if priced correctly) are selling immediately. Buyers that have been sitting out there waiting for something to come on the market this spring, are finally buying. I think you’ll see a big uptick in these numbers come May for closings. The dramatic drops you’re seeing are due to lack of new inventory entering the market.
Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays – It’s what’s for dinner!
Posted by thunsicker in Living, Vinings on July 29, 2014
After the scorching days we’ve had recently, today is the perfect day to head over to Smyrna’s Taylor-Brawner Park, enjoy the sunshine and have dinner. Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays is exactly what is sounds like – a delicious variety of food trucks parked at Taylor-Brawner every Tuesday between May 7 and September 24. They are open from 5-9pm but it isn’t a bad idea to get there a little early, beat the traffic, and get some playground time in or snag a shady spot for your blanket before you eat. There is even live music!
The band playing this week is The Stoplight Roses, and the food trucks will be:
Freckled & Blue
Pressed For Time
Yum Yum Cupcake
King of Pops
Visit the Smyrna City page for weekly updates and for more information about getting there and parking. The address is 3180 Atlanta Road, Smyrna, GA 30082. If you live in the area, don’t be surprised to see your neighbors walking or biking over. It’s a great way to get outside, let the kids run on the playground or in the grass, and let someone else cook dinner.
