Sophisticated urban living this is not, but that’s absolutely the point.

With A-frame architecture that speaks to its 1987 roots, this updated cabin and its bucolic grounds offer what’s being marketed as a “serene retreat” about 25 miles from Atlanta in Conyers. It’s a quiet location with enough nearby attractions to launch an “Airbnb empire” from here, as the listing puts it.

Those draws include The Georgia International Horse Park, the gorgeous Monastery of The Holy Spirit, and Arabia Mountain hiking, as Cary Blumenfeld, a Compass associate broker and the property’s listing agent, points out.

Asking $295,000, the property itself has “proven income and just a cool vibe,” Blumenfeld notes.

The deal includes about five acres of forested land, with a river suited for fishing and a mile of private trails for hiking and biking (with ramps).

Two fenced areas for Fido and friends make the grounds surrounding the home pet-friendly, and the river can be seen from the main home; a cabin-like garage with an additional, rentable apartment also comes with.

Inside, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom cabin has been modernized but retains that hand-hewn, rustic aesthetic one might expect. Square footage (1,729) won’t qualify as excessive, but a large back deck (with a patio beneath) helps to open things up.

Both the home and apartment come furnished.

Another option is to live a simplified life out here, within a reasonable driving commute of the big city.
