This gracious and elegant property is a unique short term rental and event space in the central part of downtown/Midtown Atlanta. It has been used for movie shoots, movie stars, business executives, company staff, families, and anyone desiring to stay in a beautiful home rather than a hotel.
The home has been meticulously restored with its original hardwood floors up and down, wood paneling in the foyer, stairs, and doors, stained glass windows on the stairwell, 8 fireplaces with tile surrounds (non operational), 12' ceilings, large rooms and open floor plan, and many original fixtures. It is elegantly furnished with high-end furniture; artwork; a beautiful new baby grand piano; flat screens TV's in the living room and all bedrooms; fine linens, dishes, and glassware; luxurious beds and absorbent towels; and a fully equipped kitchen.

Upstairs are three bedrooms: the master bedroom with king bed and walk-in closet, including the all marble master bathroom with jetted tub, stand alone glass shower, and double vanities; a second king bedroom with walk-in closet and hall bath; and a third queen bedroom with a full private bath. Additionally, attached to and part of the master suite is a sitting room/office with a double size sleep sofa.

There is a full bath in the upstairs hall with footed tub/shower for the middle bedroom. If guests are using the library downstairs with the Murphy bed, they would use the 1/2 bath downstairs and the hall bath upstairs. A washer and dryer are available in the upstairs hall. The main house can sleep 9-10 people based on double occupancy.

My family is proud to own this property. I am an attorney of over 40 years, having graduated from Vassar College and the University of Virginia School of Law. I have also served for 29 years as trustee and the executive director of my family's private charitable foundation giving grants to underprivileged children in the metro Atlanta area. I play competitive tennis and sing in my church choir. I also serve on many boards of charitable organizations, private schools, and Georgia State University. I love to travel and read extensively. My passion is abused, neglected, abandoned, and homeless children.
My husband Dick is retired from 32 years as an executive with Panasonic Company in their consumer electronics division. He helps with repairs and keeping the books.
Our 30-year-old son Christopher is a real estate agent in Midtown and manages the property along with me. This house is his pride and joy.
We have all traveled the world with both Panasonic and as volunteers with a nonprofit we support called the Foundation for Hospital Art. We provide setup and staffing for PaintFests held in children's hospitals where the patients, their parents, doctors, nurses, staff, families, and friends or visitors to the hospital paint on pre-drawn, color-coded canvasses that when completed are put together to make a large mural that we touch up and donate to the hospitals to make them better places for healing. We also paint murals on the walls, hallways, nurses' stations, treatment rooms, or wherever the hospital staff asks for art. In addition, we paint butterflies on ceiling tiles so patients lying on their backs can see something beautiful rather than a bare wall.
We have high ideals and strive to give our guests the best experience possible, the same experience we would expect when we travel to high-class hotels around the world. We believe the guest is always right, and we will do whatever is necessary to make their stay memorable. We respond to problems and requests promptly and aim to satisfy our guests immediately.
