I am very sad to leave my beautiful home, it is by far my favorite dwelling ever and it is very hard to give it up. My jaw literally dropped the first time I walked inside, I knew instantly I was home. It would also become my office, studio, show place and sanctuary.
A former parsonage, it was painstakingly restored. They just finished the exterior, a project that took well over a year because of repairs and lead paint removal. My landlords also don't believe in doing a job half way, it is this attention to detail that makes it so special. (Photo courtesy Rick Jones)
I am also more than happy to use my skills to help my wonderful landlords find a new tenant. They have taken great care of me this past 7+ years and are another big loss for me in this transition. I also looked at a lot of places before I found this one and nothing even came close. The vintage details, the three fireplaces, the moldings, the transom windows and the light, oh the beautiful light!
Next week they will be posting it online but I wanted to give y'all the first official look. I also included in the slide show some photos I took during my first walk through. If you can't see the window above then click this link. If you're interested then please contact my landlord via email to arrange a viewing. To see the full size flyer click here.
I also adore this neighborhood; walking distance to the park and very convenient to downtown, East Atlanta, midtown and the airport. I have made lifelong friends with many of my neighbors and there is nothing so glorious as Grant Park in the spring!
Update: It has been rented!
