Description of the Atlanta vacation apartment rental
Sunny, hardwoods, high ceilings, leaded windows, huge front porch, totally private apt, totally furnished with well-stocked kitchen, in Lake Claire / Candler Park. Ground floor, 1918 quadraplex, totally safe, well-lit, good layout, off-street parking and laundry. Backyard gardens, bees, chickens and parking! WIFI.
This big house was built in 1918 by the Southern Railway as an upscale boarding house where Yankee railroad execs could bring their families and over-winter at what was then the terminus of the rail-line. So it was built as a quad, which means a few things, each apt has a good layout, not chopped up from a once-primary-residence, it's got high ceilings, leaded glass, plaster walls a foot thick, and it's across the street from the old rail yard, which is now part of the Beltline. It's a well-put-together space yet welcomes you to settle in. Plenty of walking-to destinations; walk to MARTA train (either Edgewood or Candler Park). Walk to 4 unique restaurants, coffee shops, a local market, some retail. Get a growler from Candler Park Market and pull up a chair and watch what we call "chicken TV" in backyard. The beehives are safely enclosed in the chicken run. See what's growing, pull some weeds...
My coop has been on the Urban Coop Tour lots (and lately, too).
NO Roosters live here (or nearby)!!!
Besides the apartment, the central landing, the huge front porch, the yard. Laundry room is in the basement. Please don't enter the coop or chicken run without me. You have ONE parking space in the back.

Area Information
Lake Claire has a strong sense of it's community. The bumper stickers say "30307: it's not a zip code- it's an attitude". My grandfather used to say that when the hippies in Little Five Points had kids, they'd migrate to Lake Claire, where, in the 60s they founded a, back then, revolutionary Community Garden, in the 70s a famous Co-Housing Authority, 80s charter schools, and, recently a community pool. Every year we have a Tour of Funky Homes, or a Funky Tour of Homes, depending on the mood.
