About David Walens

My wife and I have been long time residents of Atlanta both moving to Atlanta in 1977.

David Walens purchased this house in 1987

Why David Walens chose Grant Park

This property has been in our family since 1987. We have rennovated the property and want to share this historical house.

What makes this house unique

The house is in Historic Grant Park in downtown Atlanta across the street from Zoo Atlanta. The house is a bungalow and was built in 1908. It has been renovated but keeps the charm of period with 9' ceilings, 3 original fireplaces and an active wood burning stove. The front porch is extends across the front of the house while the back yard is fenced with a stone patio and fire pit for relaxing evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Historic 648 is a fantastic house. Our 10 people live in this house for 3 days and 2 nights. We have a good time in it. Everything in the house are tidy and very good. The long history of the house also brings some fantastic feeling. If we come to Atlanta again, we will still choose Historic 648.

Very nice, comfortable home. Owner is very responsive to questions and requests.Second stay for us.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice at this property. It is clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. We use Uber or Lyft to get around. Approximately $7.00 ride to downtown Atlanta. CVS 24 hour drugstore within walking distance. It is our first choice when we are in Atlanta. We consider it our best kept secret for Atlanta.

Great location, very nice for a group gathering

  • 4 of 5

This house provides a blend of historic charm and modern updates. It is a great location, just minutes from downtown Atlanta. The house is spacious and served our family gathering so much better than hotels would have. The large dining table was great for games and family time. Wifi and TV allowed people to do whatever interested them. The washer/dryer were nice so that we could start the next phase of the vacation with clean clothes. =)

We did make some recommendations to David (after leaving the house), but will say that he was very prompt in meeting the need for more dishes. Before we were home from a day of sight-seeing, he had delivered new dishes and silverware. He is accessible by phone or text.
