Upon pulling up the long driveway to this English cottage, you may second guess the neighborhood. This home is as if an English cottage materialized in Atlanta. The house still stands on its original 81-year-old structure and is just over 4,000 square feet.
The 5 bed/4.5 bath property features original oak woodwork, such as the oak beams, and an artisan blue slate fireplace in the living room. An adjoining sunroom brings Santa Fe vibes to the décor with an adobe style fireplace and French doors leading to a balcony. All four of the original fireplaces are still working. The terrace level has its own living room with fireplace, kitchenette, bedroom, office space, private bath, and patio—ideal for guests, in-laws, or older children.
The home’s exterior is just as inviting as the interior. Sitting on 1.3 acres, the estate features parklike grounds, with mature azalea bushes, oak trees, and a Japanese maple. The cobblestone walkway and slate front steps are still intact from the original landscape and further lend to the home’s English style. An antique brick path wraps through the shaded backyard, made with bricks from the mid-19th century.
The 4,181 square foot home is listed through Nancy Etheredge with Harry Norman, REALTORS® and is located at 1155 Peachtree Battle Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30327.
