Stone Mountain house 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 current owner, acquired the property in 1995 from the original owner who built the house. 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, where neighborhood families spend time walking their pets. 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 in addition to 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 and exit right at the sign for Stone Mountain Park. A slower, more scenic route is to proceed east on East Ponce back over I-285 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 lazar show after dark. Check their website for other features.

If you turn right as you exit Creekdale, you can travel west on East Ponce into the center of Decatur. On your way 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 west on Ponce DeLeon you will pass an entrance to Fern Bank Science Center on your right. You will also pass some of Atlanta’s oldest large homes and eventually reach Peachtree Street near the historic Fox Theater to your right. Straight ahead is the Varsity, the world's largest drive-in restaurant, and Georgia Tech. Turning to your left on Peachtree Street will take you near Centennial Park with it’s fountains, The Aquarium, The World of Coke, Phillips Arena, The Georgia Dome, the State Capital and Turner Field.

Turn right off the exit ramp at East Ponce and take an immediate right into Creekdale Subdivision on a street named Creekdale.

                          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
