A nice Bungalow Bed and Breakfast in Atlanta Georgia for sale has an interesting history. A fire in 1995 did extensive damage to this 1920s Craftsman Bungalow, but the homeowner, Adele Northrup, turned the tragedy into a dream come true for herself by remodeling her house into a Bed and Breakfast.
Having a son who is an architect teacher came in handy along the way for help planning the cottage garden, fence, and the house renovation as a Bed and Breakfast. –Virginia Highland
The Bungalow opened as a Bed and Breakfast in 1996 shortly before the Summer Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia. Now, the Bungalow has housed a legendary list of Olympians and families from all around the world. The homeowner turned Bed and Breakfast owner, Adele, was formerly an interior landscaping business owner and known as the “Plant Lady.” Naturally, the landscaping and flowers growing around the Bungalow Bed and Breakfast show off the Plant Lady’s skill. –Virginia Highland
Welcome to Virginia Highland Bed and Breakfast at 630 Orme Circle Atlanta, Georgia. Although currently a working Bed and Breakfast, the Bungalow is offered to new owners as a private residence, as an Investment, or to continue on as a Bed & Breakfast.
Outside includes a deck, front porch, patio, gardens, professional landscaping, and the property is an unusual Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary along with having a classic Labyrinth. Next is a look at the gate….
Love the circular opening gate beckoning one to enter.
Wonderful trellis overflowing with flowers is just one of the outdoor sanctuaries to enjoy.
An introductory view into the Audubon Wildlife area.
Close up of dining room reveals wonderful period furniture pieces that fit beautifully with this restored 1920’s Bungalow.
Bed and Breakfast guest kitchen with hardwood floors. It doesn’t say, but by the looks of it, the sink is an original.
The Bungalow is actually also a duplex. Here is another kitchen.
One of the bedrooms. I think operating a bed and breakfast would be a lot of work. Every nook and cranny has to be sparkling clean all the time, everyday, year after year. So, I have admire Bed and Breakfast owners and their dedication.
The classic Labyrinth reported to be part of the property is kind of like a maze, but less confusing. There is one route to the center and back and not difficult to navigate.
The porch looks like a line of homemade tulips line the windows.
Opening the Bed and Breakfast allowed Adele to retire early from her Interior Landscaping career and do something she previously only dreamed of doing someday.
So for this Bungalow and this homeowner….dreams do come true.
