Property description

This property is great for family gatherings and outings to the surrounding activities at Stone Mountain and downtown Atlanta. This property is not available for parties and the owner does not allow parties.

The home has about 5,000 square feet, 3000 sq. ft. of which is available to guests. The house features several decks including a catwalk deck across the back. There are 3 large carpeted bedrooms & 1 bath on the 2nd level. The master suite & office, living room with fireplace, kitchen and dining room all with oak flooring are on the main level. A tile floor law library and a heated lap pool are on the lower level. With 2 queen beds, 2 double beds, 1 king bed, 1 twin bed & a corner couch unit that makes into 2 twin cots, the house easily accommodates 10-12 people. The house rate is fixed for 10 people, and there is a charge for additional people over 10.

House: The house is cedar and stone, built on two wooded lots bounded at the rear by South Fork Creek. The yard remains in its natural state. The property is in a culturally diverse subdivision built in the 1970s for returning Vietnam vets. Our next door neighbors have chickens and roosters, and the early morning barn-yard sounds create an experience distinct from the cars and horns of city life. The house requires constant maintenance given its wood construction and exposure to the natural elements, and is an ongoing project for the owner. Some of our guests have seen our pictures and expected something newer. The pictures are current, but it is not a new house. It is better described as an old comfortable house with some unusual and unique features. It is clean with fresh linens and plenty of towels. There is enough furniture to provide plenty of comfort and closeness for large family gatherings.

The house has cable and wireless Internet. This property does not have a hard telephone line.

Stone Mountain: The quickest way to Stone Mountain is to travel West on I-285 and take the next exit (Exit 39B East , Ga. 78) about seven miles. A slower, more scenic route is to proceed east on East Ponce into the Village of Stone Mountain and look for the entrance to the park there. In the day you can hike up the trail to the top or take the skylift. The mountain is circled by an antique railroad. There is a petting zoo and a number of historic exhibits. They have recently added a rope adventure feature for kids. In the summer there is a laser show after dark. In the winter the park hosts Snow Mountain for children's skiing pleasure. Check their website for other features.

Decatur and Downtown Atlanta: Traveling west on East Ponce de Leon Rd. toward Decatur you will pass the Dekalb Farmer’s Market on your right. On your left you will pass the Avondale Marta Station where you can catch a train to downtown Atlanta. There are many interesting shops and restaurants in Decatur. If you continue on Ponce DeLeon you will pass the Fern Bank Science Center. You will also pass some of Atlanta’s oldest large homes and eventually reach Peachtree Street near the historic Fox Theater. In Atlanta you can visit the Varsity, Georgia Tech, Centennial Park with it’s fountains, The Aquarium, The World of Coke, Phillips Arena, The Georgia Dome, the State Capital and Turner Field.

Payment: For ease of payment, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We DO NOT accept American Express.

Stone Mountain, Atlanta, Central & Southern, Georgia, USA (The Creek House Just Inside I-285 (Which Circles Atlanta)) -- Directions: If you are traveling east on I-285 across the north side of Atlanta, you will exit at Exit 40 which is East Ponce Deleon. Turn right off the exit ramp at East Ponce and take an immediate right into Creekdale Subdivision on a street named Creekdale. You will travel almost half a mile and cross a small bridge over the creek. You will then take the first left on DeLeon Drive. Pass some wooded lots on your left and turn into the first house on your left after the woods. It is on DeLeon Drive. If you are traveling I-285 north up the east side of Atlanta, you will exit at Exit 40 and turn right on Church Street which is across the railroad tracks from East Ponce. At your first legal opportunity, turn left over the tracks and turn left on East Ponce and travel back over I-285 and turn right into Creekdale Subdivision. Then follow the directions above.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I practice Family Law in the greater Atlanta area and have an office in the North Buckhead part of Atlanta. I have always preferred to stay in a home or condo instead of a hotel room. I like the use of a kitchen and I enjoy swimming laps at the Creekhouse pool, especially after court or after working for several hours. I always feel as if I am in the woods or mountains instead of in a subdivision near a major metropolitan area. Because of my work,I am sometimes not available to respond quickly to e-mails. If you would send a copy of e-mails with any questions to both email addresses listed,we can respond quicker.

Why the Owner Chose Stone Mountain:
I like the location of the Creek House because it has easy access to I-285. It is minutes away from Stone Mountain and a few miles from the Dekalb County Farmers Market, Emory University, DeKalb Medical Center, Fernbank Science Center and the DeKalb County Courthouse. It has easy access to downtown Atlanta by surface streets or interstate. Use Mapquest or google maps for 1066 DeLeon Drive, Clarkston, GA 30021-1027
