Atlanta house description

30319 is one of the safest zip codes in Atlanta, do the online research!

This is a 1,440 square foot house with a 12 x 20 living room, a 12 x 12 family room and two 13 x`13 bedrooms and one 10 x 10 bedroom. There is plenty of space for privacy. The house sits on a 1/3 acre slice of green urban oasis.

This house is 1/2 mile to Buckhead, one Marta train stop, or a thirty minute walk to Phipps Plaza. The financial district is two miles away. Fannie Mae offices are one train stop away.

No Security Deposit required.

Included for use in the home is everything you could want while visiting an urban area and are not interested in the 'hotel lifestyle'. There are upscale features like silk drapes and real oriental carpets. The dishes are vintage collectibles and there are high end pots and pans, including two sizes of flan pans. There is a food processor and ice cream machine. Most small appliances are Cuisinart. Heavy flatware. Salt, pepper and some spices are provided.

Fluffy Egyptian cotton towels are in good supply with cotton quilts, cotton blankets and extra down pillows provided for all the beds. There are soft extra blankets in the closet in case they are needed. The sheets are also very good quality cotton.

Cleanliness: we clean every glass and smooth surface. Rugs are regularly shampooed after doggies are guests.

In short, the place is the way you like to live.

The neighborhood is perfect for running or jogging. Plenty of street lights. The home comes with a treadmill in case of bad weather (treadmill will be locked if your group has children under the age of 16.)

The little things are furnished such as laundry soap and fabric softener for the full sized newer front loading high efficiency laundry appliances.

There are two living spaces, one of which can be closed off if needed.

Well inside the perimeter, the subdivision is on the Ridgedale Park side of Peachtree Road, across Peachtree Road from the area known as Old Brookhaven.

What you will love about this urban oasis is that the neighborhood is established with large trees and mature landscaping. Your strolls through the neighborhood will be enjoyable in any season of the year.

The location is excellent. Locals know that Brookhaven is a great neighborhood. Not as congested as the Buckhead garden subdivisions, yet very convenient. The number one complaint common to the Atlanta area is traffic. Well, travelers, just walk two and one half blocks to the Marta Station and you can ride to Stone Mountain Amusement Park, America's Mart, downtown, Airport, Midtown, Buckhead or pretty much anywhere in the Atlanta metro area. While on the train you may see folks stuck on 400 from your train window.

Emory and the CDC are six miles away. Just one right hand turn out of the subdivision and three more turns.

Turner Field is eleven and a half miles away, America's Mart is nine miles away and Piedmont Hospital is five miles from the home. The W in Midtown is a seven mile drive.

You can board the commuter train in the airport and be at the Brookhaven Marta train station in 23 minutes, roll your suitcase to the house in a few more minutes (Or take a taxi for six dollars! Taxis are always in front of the Brookhaven station). Return home by the reverse route.

The Georgia World Congress Center is 9.4 miles away.

There are Atlanta cultural attractions including opera and ballet. The Georgia Shakespeare Company's productions at Oglethorpe University are less th 2 miles away.
Garden Hills public pool in Buckhead is 3.7 miles away.
For shopping, if you are fit you can walk to the Buckhead Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza at 1.5 miles. If you love antiques and thrift stores, Antiques Row in Chamblee is a train stop and short .5 mile bus ride away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sarah and her mother, Marcia have been in the rental business for many years. Bryan has a background in the hospitality industry. Grandma Marselle financed the operation and sometimes lends a hand with cleaning and decorating. Our family's idea was to create a space for visitors where things are pretty, towels and sheets are of good quality and the flatware and kitchen implements are nice, as well. You won't see personal pictures and knick knacks are at a minimum. Our place is for you to enjoy. We planned it as if our guests were people we knew personally and cared about.

Why the Owner Chose Atlanta:
This location is so laid back and yet undiscovered other than by locals. You can walk to what you need, one of the few Atlanta communities where you don't need a car. Krogers, dry cleaners, banks, Chinese food, hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream, Dry Cleaners and Starbucks less than .2 miles away. Ten restaurants and bars within a one half mile walk.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The neighbors. They are out walking with their families and their dogs. It is a friendly community.
