A sprawling Ansley Park property—the combination of two early 1900s homes on Park Lane near the Atlanta Botanical Garden—will soon be replaced by four residences.
Last weekend, a sale was held to clear the house’s three kitchens, five bathrooms, and 11 bedrooms of their contents before the pending demolition.
Plans call for the construction of four residences—two detached homes and two townhomes—on the half-acre property.
The renderings by local firm Pritchett+Dixon show two white homes fusing modern and classical elements at the front of the property, with the two townhomes accessed by a driveway between the standalone houses.
According to the architect’s Facebook page, the townhouses will feature rooftop terraces providing views of the city. While the current owner intends to keep one of the houses and one of the townhomes, the other two are expected to list in the “early fall.”
The homes will boast enviable proximity to the Botanical Garden and easy access to the future Beltline.
The residence the development is replacing first listed for nearly $2.4 million last year and was billed as a great opportunity to “live in as is, or separate back into two homes.”
However, it didn’t foresee the demolition route that the new owner—who apparently paid $2.1 million for the property—is taking.
Look for demolition next week, with the new homes rising soon after.
