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 Atlanta

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.

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.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Charming old home in the heart of Atlanta. We were there for 8 days and after full days of sightseeing and miles of walking, it was nice to know our home base was just a short 5-10 minute drive away. The amenities are wonderful including nice towels, a complete spice pantry, and fully stocked kitchen. We cooked every night and it made our lives so much easier and comforting. We look forward to coming back again. A new stove and oven would be on my wishlist for this delightful home. :)

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in town for my nieces wedding. We had four families that were able to stay together and enjoy each others company since we are from different parts of the country,(St. Louis, Colorado, and North Caroline). The house was very spacious and we enjoyed eating scones and drinking coffee together on the front porch, sitting in the very large backyard, and walking through the historic neighborhood. The house was close to the wedding venue and everything that we wanted to do. The character of the house was amazing, but enjoyed the updated kitchen. We brought 2 small dogs which loved the big back yard. Our only regrets were that we could not spend more time in this historic home. My nephew that stayed with us was from Atlanta and use to live in this neighborhood, so he knew all the hot spots to visit. My daughter's family went to the Altanta Aquairum and other local attractions. David even let us check in a little early since some were flying in early on Thursday. We totally enjoyed our visit and would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in the Atlanta area.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay while attending woodworking show at GWCC. Beds were comfortable, we felt at home as we live in an old house also! Neighborhood was quiet. Great new Kroger store a few blocks away.
