1920 Mansion has Historic Charm, One Tremendous Porch

New, 6 comments


A historic mansion nestled among other grandiose residences in Druid Hills has moseyed onto the market, like a genteel houseguest, for $1.19 million. For the price, a buyer gets a 1920 gem with a long, low front porch, coffered ceilings, seven fire places and more than 4,600 square feet of living space. In addition to the four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms in the main house, there's a carriage house with one bedroom and one bathroom. Perched on a hill and flanked by large trees, this big nonagenarian sits comfortably on a half-acre site. Just off of Ponce de Leon Avenue, where Briarcliff Road turns into Moreland Avenue, the home is walking distance to the commercial district on Highland Avenue, Freedom Park, Candler Park, Little Five Points and the Beltline (if you've got your sneakers on). It fuses the perks of close-in living with the grandeur of Atlanta's Roaring '20s planned suburbs.
