I just got an email from Donna who is the owner of this wonderful historic home near downtown Atlanta, Georgia where she converted the separated garage structure into a little house.
She has rented it for many years now and even lived in it for 6 months while she was having her main home renovated. It started out as a one level one bedroom one bathroom apartment over the garage.
Last year, since one of the garage spaces was never really being used, she decided to turn it into a second bedroom with a bathroom to better meet the needs of her renters. Take a look below and if you’d like to you can even consider renting it below.
The suite is named in memory of the owner’s Russian Wolfhound, Princess Cathryn Natasha. I hope you enjoy the tour as much as I did!

The property is secured with a six foot iron fence and ADT security. Please enjoy the full tour below:
It’s an electric gate with battery backup and renters get an automatic opener 🙂
The property has lots of mature trees and plants all around it as you’ll see. The main house to the left was built in 1905 by Atlanta’s Willis Denny.
That’s China Doll enjoying the yard on a snowy day 🙂
The entry to the guest cottage is on the lower level and all doors are wired with ADT security.
You can actually drive your car right up to the main door too so it’s very convenient.
The staircase leads you to the upper level and the door on the right takes you to a private deck that faces west.
The view above is from the top level looking down to the door that leads out to the deck which I’ll show you below.
There are three large skylights providing lots of natural light during the day.
Above is a view of the eat in bar covered with ceramic tile.
The door on the left is the laundry room which I’ll show you later on below. The door to the right is the upstairs bathroom.
These are pocket doors that lead to the bedroom upstairs. These doors help separate the space between the living room and the bedroom.
More skylights in the room too! 🙂
Large walk in closet in the upstairs bedroom.
Classic victorian style bathroom upstairs.
And the laundry room I talked about below..
Above is the ‘garage space’ that was recently converted into a second bedroom (and bathroom) with plenty of storage space.
Another unique space saving sliding door to the bathroom below (this is so cool).
