Single family home, in Decatur, a very family friendly neighborhood in metropolitan Atlanta,
Our house is a single storey craftsman's bungalow, hardwood floors throughout, with a large private back garden with a deck. There are two bedrooms and the study has a sofa bed. The house has a pleasant front porch for your mint julips and a fine dining room, and breakfast nook. We have a minivan and a sedan car for your use.
Cable TV, DVD, video, HVAC, fireplace, garden grill, internet.
Our house is situated in a leafy, safe and very attractive neighborhood, with walking access to shops, pubs, restaurants, MARTA (the underground), parks, outdoor swimming very close. You will be in golf heaven here - the home city of Bobby Jones - hundreds of courses within 100 miles. Clubs in the garden shed. This is the city of Martin Luther King Jr., Coca Cola, the Georgia Aquarium - newly built and spectacular, the 1996 Olympics, the Braves Baseball team, the Hawks Basketball team and the Thrashers Ice Hockey team. Stone Mountain is nearby - check it out on Google Earth.
The city is superb for shopping and dining. But you have the Atlantic and Gulf coasts within hours' driving, and the north Georgia mountains only a couple of hours.
We are both teachers, high school and university, with two young children, 5 and 2. Our families are from UK and Ireland so we are looking to houseswap in the Dublin area in the summer.
