Massive Buckhead Estate by Esteemed Architect Asks $4.9M

New, 7 comments

Lewis E. Crook sounds like a shady dude you'd find palling around with the Hamburglar. In reality, he was an influential Atlanta architect who, along with his partner, designed around 40 buildings on Emory's campus, including the president's home, as well as the Druid Hills Methodist Church on Ponce de Leon Avenue, the iconic Olympia building in Five Points and homes such as the one at 220 West Andrews Drive in Buckhead. He probably never stole a hamburger in his life... at least one would hope not. While the five-bedroom, nine-bathroom estate underwent a major renovation in 2013 from T.S. Adams and John Berndsen, the bones of the 1927 home are undeniably Crook's. Similarities can be seen between the Lullwater House and this 7,379-square-foot Tudor. Last sold for $4.5 million in 2009, the estate — which includes a wine cellar, four-car garage, heated pool, two carriage houses and a guest house — is currently on the market for $4.9 million. It sits on 1.84 acres in Buckhead.
