Historic Glenridge Hall in Sandy Springs is under contract by Atlanta-based residential developer Ashton Woods, reports Bisnow. The Tudor Revival Mansion, constructed in 1929, comes with the remaining 76 acres of what once was a 400-acre farm, prompting speculation that the site will soon become a new neighborhood. There is no word yet on what will happen with the mansion, which according to Zillow has a whopping 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. While listed on the National Register of Historic Places, there are no protections in place to stop the home from being altered or demolished. The site's proximity to Ga. Highway 400 and Interstate 285 makes it a good candidate for dense redevelopment that is currently slated along the north-end Perimeter in Sandy Springs. That risk earned the home a spot on the Georgia Trust's 2015 "Places in Peril" list. Until more details emerge, the fate of the historic site is unknown, though it's very likely it will soon have new neighbors.
