Atlanta house description

Cabin Rentals of Georgia is pleased to offer our premier Atlanta luxury property Urban Retreat for a unique and wonderful escape from the ordinary. For those who thrive on the energy of city life and enjoy discovering new shops and restaurants and the convenience of accessibility to all the activities and events that Atlanta has to offer, we invite you to experience the beauty and intrigue of our light and airy historic home in the Old Fourth Ward District of Atlanta, where North Avenue meets Glen Iris. This area of Atlanta carries an excitement that is palpable and stimulating.

We are proud of this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home built in 2003, as we were successful in capturing the beauty of architectural Southern hospitality, enhanced by a fenced yard and a massive oak tree. The house plans were held to the highest standard of function while emphasizing the spaciousness of high ceilings and large rooms, providing an atmosphere of beauty and elegance. This fully-furnished executive home features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout the entire house, large bedrooms and four-post beds with luxury linens and lovely rugs arranged throughout the home. The bedrooms are all located upstairs, and the home features two king master suites with beautiful stone bathrooms and one queen bedroom. The bathrooms are spacious and boast large jetted tubs for your relaxation at the end of the day. There is an additional office area complete with a large desk and cabinets. High-speed internet is available for your convenience as well.

The finest in leather furnishings are combined with a wonderful blend of antique and modern accessories and decor which have been selected to complete this home. A grand piano adds stately elegance as well as providing opportunity for those skilled and gifted to play. The detailed appointments take you back to a time of simplicity and an appreciation of all that is refined. Every amenity is provided in the spacious kitchen featuring a six-burner gas stove on a large island to make your meals a time of relaxation and enjoyment.

Wake in the mornings to sunlight streaming in through the many windows and french doors on both levels of this home leading out to balconies over the front yard. After enjoying breakfast on the porch, enjoy a brisk two mile walk to Piedmont Park in Midtown or .2 miles to the Park in Old 4th Ward across Glen Iris where afterwards, you have the opportunity to explore healthy and unique menu options at WholeFoods, brunch at 4th and Swift, as well as a variety of eclectic antique and specialty shops. CVS, Staples, TJ Maxx, Home Depot are in the same complex. The home is in close proximity to some of Atlanta's finest restaurants including 4th & Swift and Gekko Sushi.

With easy access to Interstate 75 and 85, Urban Retreat is convenient to Atlanta's downtown business district and the Georgia Capitol building. Add a few days to your stay to ensure time for the many diverse educational, entertainment and inspirational events happening at the Fox Theater, Woodruff Arts Center, the High Museum of Art or the expansive and awe-inspiring Georgia Aquarium. Downtown Atlanta is the home of Georgia Tech, and a fabulous array of diverse and fine restaurants from which to choose.

If your dream is to experience the wonder of living in a historic home while still enjoying all that big city life has to offer, we invite you to come stay at Urban Retreat. Whether it is a week-long business trip or a weekend to explore the ever-changing Atlanta metropolitan area, you will be in the heart of all that is exciting, beautiful and culturally relevant. Visit our day trips section to discover all the attractions that are just a short drive away from this property, or explore our mountain luxury properties located in the Blue Ridge mountains just 100 miles north.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: In 2003 we were living in Atlanta and were invited to Blue Ridge to visit a friend. That was a momentous getaway because the next weekend we were back up buying a lot so that we could build our second home and enjoy for ourselves the beauty of the mountains. At the same time, we were building Urban Retreat for our personal home. After living in Urban Retreat for 3 years we made the final move to Blue Ridge where we now reside. During those years, we established our property management and vacation rental company when we discovered how successful our second home was for vacation rental. We were never able to use it! After purchasing a couple of lots on the Toccoa River and building a home there, we began to manage other cabins in the area. What began as a lark has turned into a successful company servicing 25+ homes in our portfolio. We are dedicated to providing our guests luxury accommodations and friendly service. Our goal is to exceed our guests' expectations again and again.

                  Why the Owner Chose Atlanta:
                  We love Urban Retreat and look forward to staying there whenever we can in order to get our 'city fix', as we call it. The location could not be more ideal for all there is to do in Atlanta. Every time we stay in our home we make sure to eat dinner or brunch at 4th and Swift, walk and bike along the Beltway or play in the park with our kids. We visit the Fernbank Museum several times a year, eat at great foodie restaurants located all around our home - be sure to eat at Pure on North Highlands, Ria's Bluebird Cafe on Memorial Drive for the best breakfast in the southeast. Shopping in the area is fantastic and convenient.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Urban Retreat is located in the highly sought-after Old Fourth Ward district - within walking distance to the Park and Beltline Trails, 4th and Swift (our favorite restaurant), and WholeFoods, CVS, and TJ Maxx. We enjoy events at the Fox Theatre, which is 2 miles away. We used to bike and walk at Piedmont Park with the kids (which is a couple of miles away), who played in the extensive playground, but now we just cross Glen Iris and walk less than a mile to a GREAT playground with the most modern play equipment around, along with fountains to play in - so bring a bathing suit, kids! Shopping in Atlantic Station is nearby, as well as Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza. The State Capitol is minutes away, where we have enjoyed spending time there teaching our kids about the legislative process by paging opportunities in the House of Representatives, as well as exploring their great museums. Turner Field is conveniently close, where we have enjoyed watching the Braves. In the evenings we walk across Glen Iris to get to 4th and Swift and enjoy a great meal and afterwards, a leisurely walk home. Sit on the front porch in the porch swing and enjoy a glass of wine to top the evening off. There is so much to do in this area, we never stay long enough to enjoy all there is to enjoy!
