An atypical example of modern residential architecture in Home Park is getting high marks from staycationing honeymooners, out-of-state visitors to Georgia Tech, and other adventurous short-term renters in Atlanta.
The “urban glass treehouse,” as it’s marketed via online rental marketplace Vrbo, is hidden in plain sight—at least in summer—across the street from the original Antico Pizza Napoletana location. That’s about two blocks north of Georgia Tech’s campus, just south of Atlantic Station.
Recently renovated, the 1,300-square-foot dwelling typically rents for about $247 per night.
The property's average Vrbo rating since first posting last year is a “wonderful” 4.9 of 5 stars, although the student-generated noise from nearby houses has been a sore spot for some reviewers.
With its pie-shaped lot and pointed façade, the idiosyncratic two-bedroom (more people can sleep in the living room, for a total of seven guests) was designed by Tardio Architecture.
That’s the boundary-pushing firm behind Ormewood Park’s well-known glass house overlooking the BeltLine’s Southside Trail corridor and several others dotted around Atlanta in a similar vein, like Lake Claire’s Harper House that features its own stone-and-steel bridge.
The glass-and-steel Vrbo rental comes stocked with a curated vinyl record collection of “classic albums” and a fresh supply of Bilt Coffee, plus Miele appliances for the discerning short-term renter.
