Welcome to the Hickory House! Enjoy this home away from home while visiting beautiful Decatur and the myriad of experiences greater Atlanta has to offer. The heart of Downtown Decatur is just over 1 mile away where you’ll find many award winning restaurants, shops, pubs, and if your timing is right any number of festivals hosted throughout the year in Downtown Decatur square.
Nest thermostat controlled heat and air conditioning, Wi-Fi, Roku TV with Direct satellite TV, no stairs.
Tucked in a quiet, safe walking neighborhood in Decatur, our unit was recently renovated and completed in August. The space is located in the downstairs unit of a duplex property with its own separate keyed entry and does NOT share any walls. It is extremely clean with ALL NEW FURNISHINGS, modeled in a contemporary styling.
Upon arrival drop your bags off in either of the 2 bedrooms, adjust the Nest thermostat to your comfort and kick back on the new chaise sofa where you can check your email over the free Wi-Fi, review the TV listings to see what’s available on Direct TV, or if you have your own Netflix account switch over to Roku TV to log in and watch your favorite programs. There’s also a high-top table available to open your laptop, read the paper or maybe deal out a deck of cards. The chaise sofa also pulls out into a sleeping arrangement.
The remodeled kitchen is bright and open with entirely new stainless steel appliances at your disposal. Whip up your favorite gourmet meal with fresh goodies from the nearby Dekalb Farmer’s Market or simply re-heat the delicious meal you were unable to polish off the night before from one of Decatur’s many fabulous culinary offerings. Take your meal at the new contemporary dining table in the kitchen, the high top table in the living room, or perhaps your freshly brewed morning coffee at the bistro table overlooking the backyard. Keeping the kitchen clean is a snap with a large farmhouse sink and new dishwasher.
The unit features two bedrooms. When it’s time for siesta pull the shades in the well lit master bedroom with queen size bed, or the slightly smaller second bedroom with full size bed. Both bedrooms feature new memory foam mattresses so whether settling in for a catnap before hitting the town or recharging after a long day of taking in the sights expect to be cradled in comfort. An iron and ironing board are also available in the master closet.
The single bathroom, also completely renovated in contemporary styling, offers all the amenities you might expect including tiled shower with bench, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Fluffy towels, hair dryer, great lighting and large mirror help ensure your look is spot on before hitting the town.
