Property description

Located at 917 Piedmont Avenue, 30309, on the most beautiful street in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, our home sits above the street on the corner of Piedmont and 8th Street with sweeping views of the Midtown skyline. It is a meticulously restored and elegantly furnished Victorian with 4 Bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths, plus a sitting room with a double size sleep sofa that is adjacent to and a part of the master suite. This is not a private room since it doesn't have doors; it's separated from the master bedroom by a short hallway, and it shares the master bath next door. It is very comfortable for one adult or two children. There are 8 original fireplaces throughout the home, all restored

The main house has a large relaxing front porch with a comfortable furniture grouping, The first floor contains a welcoming central foyer with grand chandelier, a living room with baby grand piano and 60' flat screen TV, a full-size dining room that seats 10 with another gorgeous chandelier and fireplace, a full library in which we are installing a Murphy bed that allows this room to be turned into another bedroom on the main level for those who need easy access, a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including a side-by-side double refrigerator with ice and water in the door; a professional 4-burner gas stove; a heavy duty dishwasher and a Keurig coffeemaker with supplies provided for your use during your stay, a 1/2 bath/ powder room with exposed brick wall, and a mudroom for shoes/boots, coats when entering the home as well as extra storage.

The second floor has a central hall with a striking chandelier, three large bedrooms, two with king beds and one with a queen bed, a sitting room with double-size sleep sofa, and three full 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 9 adults( based on double occupancy of the 4 bedrooms and a single adult on the sleep sofa) or 10 with children (including at least 2 children on the double sleep sofa).

On the main level, double glass doors open to a private porch and large back yard that is completely fence for privacy and professionally landscaped around a 3-tier marble fountain. This area is perfect for weddings, parties, charitable events, etc. and, weather permitting, becomes an extension of the main house when the glass doors are opened up.

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. The main house and carriage house may be rented together or separately.

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 perfect for events such as weddings, luncheons, showers, charitable fundraisers, club meetings, parties, business meetings, retreats, etc. Many guests have hosted functions there while staying in the home, including rehearsal dinners, receptions, open houses, dinner parties, cocktail parties, birthday parties, family dinners, club meetings, company Christmas parties, book clubs, retreats, etc. Several movie studios have also filmed scenes inside our home, a big business in Atlanta.

We also offer several wedding packages. We have a number of lovely areas for you to hold your ceremony, including the spacious downstairs foyer that opens into the living room, dining room, and kitchen areas for guests to observe, as well as the private enclosed back yard, weather permitting, which is a gorgeous location with the lush landscaping and fountain. It's also possible to set up tables and chairs or a small tent in the yard if you choose. We do not provide any additional supplies, only our home. You would be responsible for hiring caterers, bartenders, or other service staff or renting tables, chairs, linens, china, glassware, etc. We can help with recommending vendors who have used our home and are familiar with it for spacing and setup. Please feel free to contact us for further information and pricing.

There is a event fee of $2,500/weekend day ($2,000 weekdays) for full use of the property without any additional night's stays. If you are staying in the home for at least two nights, the event fee is reduced to 1/2 or less depending upon the number of people for your event and the type of and plans for the event.

The maximum number of people the house can accommodate is 40-45 inside and around 80 if the weather permits you to use the porches and yard as well. However, these numbers would fluctuate depending on your plans - seated dinner, buffet, passed drinks and hors d'oeuvres, bar, band, dancing, etc. We are happy to discuss these arrangements with you to determine if we can accommodate you.

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

Why the Owner Chose Midtown, Atlanta, GA, USA:
This is one of the most gorgeous and unique properties in one of the most desirable parts of Atlanta. There are no other properties like it for rent in Midtown Atlanta, the hub of Atlanta attractions and nightlife, as well as walking access to Piedmont Park that is Atlanta's version of Central Park and that hosts events every weekend in the summers. The newly renovated Atlanta Botanical Gardens are next door. Our home has been meticulously restored and carefully maintained. It sits majestically up above the sidewalk on the corner of Piedmont Avenue and 8th Streets in the heart of Midtown. Lounging on the front porch, you don't even feel you're in the city because of the large trees, lush plants, birds, and cicadas chirping, yet through the trees you see the lights of the high rise hotels and office towers of central Midtown. It's a magical scene!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
