The 52nd once-a-year Historic Druid Hills Household & Yard Tour from April 29 to Could 1 coincides beautifully with the Olmsted 200 celebration with a showcase of 12 of the neighborhood’s most notable dwellings.
In accordance to tour organizer Package Eisterhold, a genuine estate advisor with Engel & Volkers Atlanta, this year’s tour has some of Druid Hills’ most gorgeous residences, which include the “Driving Overlook Daisy” home at 822 Lullwater Street.
Now owned by Jim and Cyndy Roberts, the Tudor-type home has been virtually unchanged given that it was crafted in 1920 and when it was made use of as the house of the title character in the Academy Award-winning movie starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.
Eisterhold stated one more tour-halt not to skip is the back garden at 797 Springdale. “It’s famous in the community for getting tens-of-thousands of bulbs planted and Japanese maples. Golf legend Bobby Jones was married in that back garden.”
Famed architect Neel Reid intended the French Manor house at 1348 Fairview, which Eisterhold calls “one of the very best in the community.” It was originally owned by an heir to Rich’s Section Retail store.
A further pointed out architect, Arthur Neil Robinson, designed the Tudor at 1296 Fairview, which arrives with a scandalous history. Eisterhold explained C.S. Carnes, an accountant for the Southern Baptist Conference, acquired the dwelling with embezzled funds that in today’s bucks would total to additional than $12 million.
Eisterhold explained the Tudor-design “estate home” at 1741 S. Ponce, which faces Olmsted Linear Park, as a “showstopper.”
