Thanks for stopping by. The Hacienda is many things at once. An organic farmette. An apothecary and herbal laboratory. A haven for lost dogs. A rustic and out of the ordinary Event Space. A mid mod family home updated into a funky homestead. Artist Retreat. Created, rehabbed and tended by former Atlanta/Decatur chef & restaurateur turned farmer and host, Michele. That's me.
I bought this groovy mid century estate (built in 1959) in 2005, with a swimmin' pool and tennis courts and a lot of little tiny rooms and mint green Formica in a little farm town an hour from Atlanta. Over the years I've transformed this grand dame estate into an open breezy contemporary home and event space with a big open kitchen at the heart with 6 acres of organic gardens and flowing pasture.
The Formica is gone and the pool is filled in (growing wild herbs and tree saplings now). It's a mid century modern... farmhouse. An eco friendly home with garage apartment with 5 years running on Airbnb. There are tons of old growth trees, lush grounds and a little hen house and covered run for pastured hens.
WE ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR EVENTS AND AIRBNB RENTERS but will only book 3 months out to accommodate a buyer's schedule thanks for understanding.
