On the National Register of Historic Places and known as the Thomas P. Arnold House, this is indeed a very special place. Built in 1905 and renovated over the years, this home is in well-loved condition. Wood floors throughout (mostly original) except for laundry and one bathroom. Kitchen updated with modern amenities. Eight fireplaces. High ceilings. Expansive Southern porch across front. Screened porch on back for al fresco dining. Backyard is an oasis with barns, sheds, a playhouse, firepit and even a stage (deck) in the back corner for outdoor concerts/events under the massive tree canopy. It's also the perfect spot for talking to the moon! Built-in china cabinet in dining room. Built-in bookcases in two rooms. One of the original four upper level bedrooms converted to a large bathroom with separate shower, clawfoot tub, fireplace and antiqued wood vanity. Huge floored attic. Great location close to I-85 and only 20 minutes from the airport. A picturesque short drive takes you to Serenbe for dining and cultural offerings. Lot is just over one acre, but feels larger. In addition to the four total bedrooms, there are other rooms for multiple uses: large office upstairs, sunroom/2nd office (off the living room) and parlor with adjoining a full bathroom downstairs. Large operational pocket doors between the parlor/dining room and parlor/foyer. This is a private residence; qualified buyers, please make an appointment with owner/agent or buyer's agent before visiting the property. Thank you.

What Locals Say about Palmetto

  • Trulia User
    "I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 8 years. Not much traffic, but is definitely becoming more busy. "
  • Trulia User
    "Dogs are walked by owners and don’t run around loose. I’ve never heard of anyone getting bit by a loose or stray dog. I do notice that the owner don’t pickup the dog poop, but that would be my only complaint."
  • Trulia User
    "Quiet, country living, just the sound of dogs barking and crickets chirping. Your neighbors look out for you, your home, and any suspicious activity. Just like a neighborhood family. "
  • Trulia User
    "Perfect alternative to the higher taxed Chattahoochee Hills area and only 2 miles from Serenbe. Quiet neighborhood with very little trouble."
  • Trulia User
    "Palmetto is conveniently located south of Atlanta, GA away from the crime and traffic of major cities. It is easily accessible off Interstate 85 which runs North and South through Atlanta. It is also very close to 285 which is the loop around Atlanta. Property is a lot cheaper and you get bigger homes and yards. The city bus do run right through the city from College Park, Fairburn, and Union City. Palmetto is also close to Newnan and Peachtree City. You will never encounter traffic, but police will pull you over for speeding so watch out! "
