Property description

Beautiful six acre estate with frontage on the Chattahoochee River and a small, private lake. The setting is gorgeous. Perfect for entertaining by the river or just enjoying the peaceful setting. The home is very nice with plenty of room for a large family to spread out and enjoy (over 4500 sf). The main level of the home has a formal living room with stone fireplace and leather sofa, loveseat and recliner, formal dining room, large eat-in kitchen with granite counters, upscale appliances, spacious family room with leather sectional sofa away from the bedrooms and a 55' LCD flat screen TV (Dish Network)and sound bar with iPod dock, XM satellite radio, master suite with vanity and walk-in closets, garden tub and shower in the master bath, two additional large bedrooms, a second full bathroom, hardwood floors throughout the house, ceiling fans in every room, palladium windows, zoned air conditioning, private deck off the living room, utility room with washer and dryer, two car garage and lots of room for more cars and an RV. There is also a handicap access ramp.

The terrace level is self contained with a large eat-in kitchen and plenty of room (two spacious bedrooms with queen beds, a twin bed and a sofa bed) making it possible for two families to stay with their own separate spaces. The terrace level floors are also hardwood (tile in the kitchen). All new appliances. There is a large walk-in shower. The terrace level has a very big activity room with a regulation pool table, two TVs (a projection TV and LCD flat screen TV with built-in DVD player) and exercise equipment. There is a stone paver patio overlooking the lake outside the double french doors in the terrace kitchen. A stone paver walkway leads from the patio to the stone paver walkway in the front.

A pergola is located at the foot of the driveway down by the river which can be used for entertaining, weddings or picnics.

Enjoy walking along the river or to historic Campbellton, jogging or biking the miles of unpaved road along the river, hiking trails along the bluff overlooking the river or just sit outside and enjoy the wildlife - deer, hawks, owls. Fish in the private lake. Bring your canoe, kayak or raft and enjoy the river. Plenty of room to practice that golf swing. Indoor swimming is about two minutes away at a public aquatic center. All of this in the shadow of Atlanta. You are literally just minutes away from the Atlanta's sites, restaurants, entertainment and sports activities (Falcons, Braves, Tech, etc.) or the airport. You will enjoy the private setting, the convenient location and your vacation at our river estate home.

Our Chattahoochee River Estate vacation home is 15 minutes from the airport, 25 to 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta, 15 minutes from Six Flags, 35 to 40 minutes from Stone Mountain Park or steps away from nature.

ALSO, please see our other VRBO listing, ESTATE 166, located one mile away with private swimming pool and tennis court on six acres. VRBO #408928.

Thanks for considering our home for your stay in Atlanta.

Enjoy the big beautiful home just a short drive from downtown Atlanta! 04/28/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:

In planning a multi-family trip to Atlanta, we were initially considering renting a couple of hotel suites in downtown Atlanta, but instead decided to check out the Chattahoochee River Estate, as it offered a ton more room and all the comforts of home, just a short drive via interstate to the downtown Atlanta area. I'm so glad we did - we had a great week! The listing information presented was clear and accurate. The home is a large multilevel property on a very large piece of land abutting the Chattahoochee River. It was especially exciting for the kids to be able to have their own space and explore outside without us parents worrying about neighbors or strangers. The property is very well-equipped: the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you'd need; there's plenty of seating in three different, large living spaces; and the pool table and air hockey table were good, fun perks that we don't have back at home. The property was clean and well-maintained. Mr. Evans was in touch prior to arrival with all of the information we'd need to stay at the property, including detailed directions, keyless lock/security/wireless codes, and information about the area and things to do. He even gave us a call on the day of our arrival to ensure that the property would be prepared in advance according to our travel schedule, and to ensure that lawn maintenance the next day would not be an inconvenience. We arrived to an abundant care package of necessities - so much so that we never felt like we needed to go to the store for supplies. I would highly recommend this property to friends or family, particularly for multifamily vacations, reunions, small retreats or teambuilding trips. It's just far enough from the city to feel completely private and peaceful, but close enough that you can spend a full day downtown and not feel like the journey home is too long at the end of the day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love water settings and acreage. We live on 9 acres about 10 minutes away from the river estate. We wanted a nice place to retire to without leaving the area since we have lived here for 35 years. When the river estate came on the market we jumped on it. We have completely renovated the entire house. We are comfortable where we live and are not ready to retire just yet to the river estate so we are offering for vacation rental. We have had such a warm reception to our home we purchased another estate on six acres with private swimming pool and tennis court just one mile away. It is available on VRBO. See VRBO listing 408928 - Estate 166.

Why the Owner Chose Cliftondale, GA, USA:
Atlanta is our home and most of our relatives live here. We wanted a vacation type home that is large enough for family to visit in a setting where grandkids and friends could enjoy. The Chattahoochee River runs through Atlanta and bluffs along the river are high enough make settings be similar to North Georgia mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
A completely private retreat from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta and yet literally minutes away from all of it. You will find it hard to believe that such a rural setting is still in Atlanta. Miles of unpaved roads, hiking trails, acres and acres of open space, wildlife, and a historical location.
