Touring Glennwood Estates

September 5, 2014


Glennwood Estates Georgia, Atlanta, Fairhope Supply Co.

Here we are in lovely Glennwood Estates, an old established neighborhood in Decatur, Georgia. It was a beautiful summer day for a stroll, so I grabbed my camera to capture some of the charming homes along the way.

Glennwood Estates, Atlanta, GA



The first building I noticed was a beautiful apartment. With screened porches, awnings, arched windows, this was a true beauty.




Here’s another view of the apartments from the side. I’m guessing they had awesome wood floors.

  • Thanks for the tour Leslie Anne. I’ve never been here and it is a beautiful neighborhood. I love the house with the roof decoration, looks like it belongs in a fairytale book! I also love the ivy house, a dream too. When we visit my sister in Atlanta we sometimes drive to Decatur for shopping and the restaurants. A charming area.

  • Leslie Anne… what a beautiful, charming neighborhood! We have moved around a lot and Georgia has always been on my wish list. I just love windowboxes! The English Tudor looks like the house I grew up in. Have a great weekend!

      I think you’ve landed in a good spot now, except for maybe all the snow! Every time you show photos of your area, I just fall in love with New England all over again!
