Property description

Located at 917 Piedmont Avenue, 30309, on the most beautiful street in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, our home is a meticulously restored and elegantly furnished Victorian with 3 Bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths plus a sitting room with a double size sleep sofa. Across the back courtyard is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath carriage house and a 2-car garage for off-street parking. The house sits above the street on the corner of Piedmont and 8th Street with sweeping views of the Midtown skyline. The main house and carriage house may be rented together or separately.

The main house has a large relaxing front porch with a comfortable furniture grouping, original wood floors throughout, 14' ceilings, stained glass windows, original wood paneling, and large windows that overlook the stunning Midtown skyline. The first floor contains a welcoming central foyer, living room with baby grand piano and 60' flat screen TV, dining room with a gorgeous chandelier and fireplace, library, fully equipped kitchen, 1/2 bath/ powder room, and a mudroom. Double glass doors open to a private porch and large back yard that is completely fenced. The second floor has three large bedrooms, two with king beds and one with a queen bed, a sitting room with double-size sleep sofa, and two baths. The master bath is marble throughout with double sinks, a glass stand alone shower, and jetted tub. There are 50" flat screen TVs in every bedroom. WiFi is provided as are premium TV channels. The house can accommodate 7-8 adults( based on double occupancy of the 3 bedrooms and a single adult on the sleep sofa) or 8 with children (including at least 2 children on the double sleep sofa).

The carriage house was built three years ago and is a one-bedroom studio with kitchen, dining area, and king bed plus a separate full bath. It can accommodate 2 adults based on double occupancy. It is open and bright and has a more contemporary decor. It rents for $250/night if rented alone or $200/night in conjunction with the main house.

Under the carriage house is a two-car garage, a valuable commodity in this area of town where parking is scarce and towing strictly enforced. One or both spaces in the garage are included with either the main house or the carriage house rental.

This home is also perfect for events such as weddings, luncheons, showers, club meetings, parties, business meetings, retreats, etc. Many guests have hosted functions there. A number of our guests have held open houses, dinners, and cocktail parties. Several movie studios have filmed scenes inside our home.

There is a event fee of $2,000/ day for full use of the property. If you are staying in the home for at least two nights, the event fee is reduced to $200 - $1,500 depending upon the number of people and the type of event. The maximum number of people the house can accommodate is 50. The property will accommodate more if the porches and back yard can be utilized.

We also offer several wedding packages. We have a number of lovely areas for you to hold your wedding, including the spacious and open downstairs common area as well as the private enclosed back yard, weather permitting. Contact us for further information.

We can provide other services for a fee. Among those are daily maid service, chef, meal service, catering, concierge, shopper, and driver. Please let us know what you need.
