Carlyle Park is a phenomenal intown Atlanta townhouse community. It’s less than a mile from the Edgewood Retail District and just steps from the Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA stop. The homeowner’s association fees are only $151 per month, a ridiculously low number considering that the property has its own pool, clubhouse and fitness center. It’s a solid, well managed, well located community… but all of that said, there is one special quality that makes Carlyle Park stand out from the rest of Atlanta’s townhouse communities: It smells great.
More specifically, it smells like pie.
Carlyle Park sits across the street from the Edwards pie factory. If you’re not familiar with Edwards, their factory, or this particular part of town, check out John Kessler’s 2010 AJC piece about the institution– here’s a little taste:
That aroma of freshly baked pie reaches out like a steam tendril. No, like a crooked index finger, beckoning you. And even as your eyes focus on the late-model Volvo one car length in front, you have an out-of-body experience, rising like a blissed-out cartoon character, floating through the air, to that pie on the ledge.
If you have smelled The Smell, you have asked the question and gotten the answer. There is a pie factory here, the bodacious Edwards pie factory that started as a retail bakeshop some 60 years ago and presently churns out pie after pie destined for the supermarket freezer.
If a prime intown location, low HOA fees, and the smell of pie has your interest piqued, consider the following: newer construction (2004), a two-car garage, private/fenced backyard, covered deck area and an upgraded (granite counters, stainless steel appliance) kitchen.
Seriously. For more information, check out the online flyer. Or, save yourself the time and just give me a call. I’ll tell you all about it, and if you decide to purchase it, I’ll even throw in a couple of freshly baked pies.
