Main home & cottage on private large lot in heart of the City

Please be aware, this is 2 homes. While this listing is for both the main house and cottage, you may book the cottage (listing #1284666), and/or main house (listing # 1284520) separate of one another for a different rate. In your search, enter the listing # instead of the city. Rates are based on # in party, so when you make an inquiry, ensure you have the correct # of guests. Equally, if your desired date reflects that this listing is booked, reach out to me as the cottage may be booked, but the main house may be open. While there is a VRBO listing "Bungalow Estate Main House" for main house only, or "Bungalow Estate Cottage" for the cottage only, these homes are listed on another site and the calendar may not reflect correct booked dates. About the homes: Originally built in 1920's, while it was renovated, detail to it's original era of millwork was maintained. It features the main home with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, (2 refrigerators, wine cooler), and is attached (via a large enclosed breezeway) to the cottage, which features a 2nd full kitchen, bath, living Area, 1 bedroom/1 bath/private bedroom with queen bed. There are 2 driveways with separate entries into each home. The expansive garden features a canopy of 10 Oak trees, each @ 200 years old with a very mature and well maintained landscape. By design, each room is spacious and private. This home is about relaxing and enjoying your home, away from home. Whether you take joy in quiet time on the front porch or on one of the 3 slate outdoor patios, or a short walk over to Starbucks, or one of the many restaurants and shopping in short walking distance, you will find your stay in this home and location a blend of access to some of the best in the city, yet tucked into a garden haven in an exquisite home setting.

Your access will be a full 3200 square feet of space, featuring 2 independent, yet connected homes. There is close to an acre of land tucked under mater Oak trees in a lush, private landscape, and all gated. Within a mile radius are several very well noted restaurants: Bacchanalia (5 star), Star Provisions, The Optimist, and many more. The grounds of this large lot was one of the battlegrounds (high point) during the Civil War, of which relics were found during my 25 year ownership of this home. I look forward to hosting you!

About Linda Alcott

Over the years I have acted as a General Contractor, Investor, sold IT in the travel industry, practiced as an NMT, among many other interests. I maintain a Real Estate license. This home was originally only 900 SF. It has been renovated several times, expanding it to a total of 3200, including the main home and the cottage. I did a lot of the work, and also did all of the landscape. The layout is ideal for Bnb, which was a vision 25 years ago. I greatly enjoy hosting those guests who appreciate and respect one's home. I love staying in a well maintained home when I travel. I am passionate about what I do as it is my wish to make your stay a special memory of a place that felt like "home".

Linda Alcott purchased this Estate in 1993

Why Linda Alcott chose Westside

The city of Atlanta offers a taste of something different in every nook. This location is very central to everything "intown". You can walk to many restaurants and shopping. Lyft's central office is 2 blocks away. The Marta bus stop is across the street. The lush landscaped canopy, private patios and expansive interior of this home has been highly desired by those here for business or please. This home is featured on another site, with the cottage and main home also being separate listings. The reviews are excellent on that site.

What makes this Estate unique

4 of the 5 bedrooms offer their own private porch access to the beautifully landscaped surroundings on this large property. Because these rooms are very spacious, a twin bed accompanies 4 of the 5 bedrooms should you need your little one to sleep in your room. You will feel like you are in the mountains, not in the very heart of the City of Atlanta. The unique character of this home has been well received and enjoyed by all guests. It functions well for business travelers who wish to have lots of space (& desk in every bedroom), yet communal areas to share time, as well as for multiple families traveling together to Atlanta. It is very close to many of the best restaurants in the City and conveniently sandwiched between intown/midtown/downtown/Buckhead.
