Midtown home by famous female architect (one of Georgia's first) for sale

Featuring plenty of party space and two wine fridges, this old gal is ready to soiree

Leila Ross Wilburn was one of Atlanta's first female architects, designing an array of homes that are still stunners a century later. They dot the landscape of Decatur, Lake Claire, and Druid Hills, among other places.

Now, one of her creations in Midtown is for sale. The beautifully restored residence features four bedrooms and four bathrooms — the master bath complete with Carrara marble and clawfoot tub.

Chockfull of century-old details, the home's also flooded with natural light. The inviting front porch may appear genteel, but don’t be fooled; this house is ready to party, with an open layout, two wine fridges, a professional-grade kitchen, two decks, and a sprawling backyard.

Having sold just last year for $860,000, the $935,000 price tag may seem high to some. But for a piece of history, and a pad ready for partying, the home could offer a real bang for those big bucks.
