Salt Water Pool??

I have always wanted a pool. I don’t know why, because I can’t swim. Maybe being land locked in Atlanta is getting to me. I’m a New Yorker- I went to the beach EVERY summer, it was effortless. I went to Coney Island once a week to eat at Nathans and walk in the sand.  Now, I have to PLAN trips which as caused me not to go as often.

Imagine my excitement when I obtained my first listing with a pool! I honestly wish I could buy his home myself. -THAT’S HOW EXCITED I AM, when my husband tried to burst my bubble by asking “how will you maintain it”.

He is such a kill joy at times, but it did cause me to do some online research. Here is a site on Youtube that has tons of information on how to care for a pool. It’s easier than you may think if you inherit one that has already been well maintained.

Historic West End and it’s neighboring community Westview, were deemed one of Atlanta’s “Hidden Gems”.  The Historic West End is a community quickly rebounding in popularity due to affordable 1920 Craftsman Bungalows very similar to those found in Grant Park and Virgina Highlands.
