I love how the house keeps revealing its little secrets: some of the closets have a panel of glass brick, to let in abundant natural light but still provide privacy. Both hallways have this feature, too. It was wonderful to relax on the patio in the evening. Light from inside would spill out through the glass block, and the sounds of the waterfall in the pond made for a peaceful getaway from a hectic life.

  

I love how the archways and ceiling decorations draw my eye upward. The ceilings are tall, but not enormous: I don't have to pay to heat and cool a cathedral ceiling space!

The wood floors gleam. Having them refinished when we moved was wonderful: I wish we had done it earlier, because they turned out so beautifully.

     

I love being able to walk to Alons and Food 101.  The Morningside Farmer's Market is just a few blocks away! Sometimes we'd walk a little farther to the post office, and the San Francisco Roasting Company and all the other shops, restaurants, like Murphy’s, and galleries in Virginia Highland.

       

The property has more than 40 azaleas. We didn't shear them into gumdrop shapes, but let them form lovely drifts of color. Perennials are our friends! There are daffodils and iris and dayliles and lamb's ears and ajuga and more.

      

I love how the house is right in the city, yet far removed from traffic and hub-bub. It's a short walk to catch a city bus, but they don't come barreling down the street in front of the house. The back yard is private and peaceful: a calming retreat with hardwoods.

      

I love the amount of storage space: a garage, an attic, a basement and big closets! Even a large pantry closet in the kitchen!

I love how Morningside Elementary, one of the best schools in the entire city, is within walking distance. It's close enough to walk the kids to school easily but far enough away not to have the noise and bustle that a grammar school can generate.

     

I love Lenox-Wildwood Park across the street with its creek and tennis courts. It buffered the noise, helped keep the air fresh, and made the immediate neighborhood seem more secluded. It was great for walking the dogs and meeting the neighbors.

       

The house is conveniently located to much of the city. Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead are only minutes away. Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza shopping are close as are the movie theaters there and in Midtown. Emory University, Emory Village, the CDC, Fernbank, and Little Five Points are not much further.

     

My husband had an easy ride to his downtown office and I enjoyed a reverse commute up 400 to the Perimeter Mall area. As an alternate route, I could always slip onto I-85 and the Perimeter. Again, there were wonderful restaurants and shopping in that area too!

     

My husband especially appreciated that the house was all brick construction with a tile roof. That meant relatively low maintenance. The U-shape of the house made a portion of the back yard very private and gave the whole house a grand flow and feel.
