This charming 2/2 Bungalow with professionally landscaped front yard, is in Oakhurst, a neighborhood in the southern tip of Decatur, GA. It's just blocks away from the East Lake golf course and Oakhurst Village (local restaurants, coffee shop, and bars) and is walking distance to downtown Decatur and MARTA's E-W rail line (providing easy access to ATL's major sports venues, Midtown, and Downtown Atlanta).
This bright, quaint, renovated home is the perfect for long-term rentals while in town for working (film/TV producers and crew welcome), visiting family in town (stay close by without intruding), or as an alternative to a hotel while a loved one is receiving excellent care at Emory University Hosipital.
The master bedroom has a private, full bathroom with great lighting and plenty of room for toiletries. It also has a closet equipped with ELFA shelving, antique dresser and vanity with plenty of drawers. The 2nd bedroom is bright and fitted with twin bunk beds. Two lighted, ELFA closets are equipped with shelving for plenty of storage. The full-sized pull-out couch is located in the living room. The second full bathroom has plenty of natural light and space for personal items.
The bright, small office area is perfect for working (WiFi included) or planning your day. The breakfast nook is surrounded by windows for a view of trees (and plenty of squirrels) and is located off the kitchen. The small deck with table and umbrella overlooks a very large, private fenced-in yard gives children and pets room to roam, but not too far.
Off-street parking is available in the driveway and the backyard parking pad. Street parking is also allowed.
The home is equipped with central air and heat, has an alarm, Flat Screen LCD TV, HD over-the-air antenna, High Speed Cable WiFi, Netflix, Hulu, AirPlay speakers, and basic cable TV channels. Movies and games are available for your enjoyment. Pets may be allowed, please call for details. Extra pet fee will apply. A local dog park is a short walk away and Oakhurst is a very dog-friendly neighborhood (we even have a doggie bakery).
While here you can walk to our local parks and public swimming pool, walk to the Wylde Gardens or the East Lake Community Garden. Our neighborhood boasts a butcher/market, dry cleaner, running shop, bakery, coffee shop, restaurants, bars, and more! Downtown Decatur and Agnes Scott are only a 25 minute stroll away. Saturday morning take a five minute walk to the East Lake Farmer's Market, or twelve minutes to the East Lake YMCA.
The kitchen is fully stocked with anything a cook would need, including a new gas stove (12/12). Condiments are available in the home and the Oakhurst Market is just a walk away to pick up anything you need (including prepared meal items) for a lovely dinner in watching the sunset from the kitchenette or back deck. A gas grill is available for grilling out.
A new HVAC system was installed in April, 2013 so you will remain cool during Hotlanta's summer months and warm during our short winters.
This is a cozy home, children should run outside in the large, fenced-in back yard or at one of our local parks. Medlock Park has a playground, skate park, baseball park, and swimming pool. Oakhurst park has basketball, softball field, playground, and tennis courts. ...moreless

Oakhurst is a historic neighborhood in Decatur, Georgia. It was built in the early 20th Century and is located just six miles east of Atlanta and slightly southwest of the Decatur Square. It's a charming neighborhood with the active, central “Oakhurst Village” where you will find butcher/market, dry cleaner, running shop, bakery, coffee shop, restaurants, bars, and more. The area is accessible by the East Lake MARTA Station on the E-W rail line (providing easy access to ATL's major sports venues, Downtown Decatur, Midtown, and Downtown Atlanta).
Oakhurst Village is also home to the former Old Scottish Rite Hospital which is listed on the National Register of Historic places. This historic building currently houses an art gallery, a wine bar, and the Solarium, a community center and event facility, where local neighborhood groups meet.
The Oakhurst neighborhood is home to several festivals, BBQ, Blues & Bluegrass Festival, Earth Day, Jazz Nights, and the Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival.
Three public parks are within walking distance including Harmony Park (in the Village), McCoy Park (playground, swimming pool, and baseball field), and Oakhurst Park (playground, tennis, and softball field).
The Wylde Center, a local green space and community garden, is a short walk past The Village. Downtown Decatur and Agnes Scott College are only a 30 minute walk away (1.9 mi). Once in Decatur, enjoy walking the tree-lined streets to shops, eateries, art galleries, library, recreation center, and businesses. Pedestrian and bicycle access is a top priority for our economic development program. Six different walking tours are available.
Saturday morning (9-1) take a five minute stroll to the East Lake Community Learning Garden and buy fresh fare. East Lake Golf Club is just a fifteen minute walk away (1 mile) and is the home course of legendary golfer Bobby Jones and is the oldest golf course in the city of Atlanta.
Oakhurst is just 5.4 miles (11 minutes) from Downtown Atlanta, 14 miles (22 minutes) from Lenox Mall in Buckhead, 10 miles (25 minute drive) west of Stone Mountain Theme Park. Six Flags is 16 miles (25 minute drive) southwest of Oakhurst.

About the owner: Hi there! My name is Susan and I am in my mid 40's. I'm mom to one tween girl and one teen girl. I grew up in Roanoke, VA but have called Metro Atlanta my home for 20+ years. I'm a self-employed Parent Coach, Public Speaker, and Educator. I enjoy travel, a good up of coffee (Kavarna uses Dancing Goats roasted beans), eating and shopping locally, and playing tennis (my home teams play out of Decatur courts, of course). I am working on my yet-to-be-titled parenting book while trying to juggle home and career demands. Even though I don't have a ton of time to spare, I love hanging out with friends (a phone call while walking around my wonderful neighborhood often suffices) and trying new restaurants (there are so many in Decatur I usually don't have to fight traffic to check out the best fare). I'm absolutely in love with my life and a big part of that is living here in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Decatur. Great schools, cool neighbors, great friends, walk ability, and my adorable house :) I hope you enjoy your stay with me and please know I'm committed to helping you do just that!
