Here's One Method For Obtaining A Historic But Modernized Druid Hills Estate

Yesterday we took the unusual step of featuring a home already under contract because it was unique and really nice; it seemed something that would not occur again for many moons. Then we came upon this most interesting listing in the heart of Druid Hills, the only Atlanta neighborhood planned by Fredrick Law Olmsted (and indeed, one of the relatively few that was truly planned at all). Usually a listing that features zero interior shots is a big loser, but if you dig into this one, you see that it's actually pretty special. In short, it's a shell of a house for $895,000. Intrigued? Read the broker babble and you'll discover the inside of this house has been taken down to the studs, in anticipation of a deep-pocketed buyer renovating, perhaps with these guys. The address alone is probably worth a couple of hundred thousand...in an area of grand streets, Lullwater Road is among the grandest. In addition, the house overlooks the 15th and 16th holes of the Druid Hills Golf Club, as lovely and placid a track as you'll find inside the city limits. The house itself is 1927 vintage and it and the grounds are loaded with old world details crafted of brick and stone among the mature foliage. We'd guess someone is going to do something pretty spectacular with this place, perhaps we'll have a chance to see the results sometime in the future.
