The 52nd annual Historic Druid Hills Property & Back garden Tour from April 29 to Could 1 coincides perfectly with the Olmsted 200 celebration with a showcase of 12 of the neighborhood’s most noteworthy dwellings.
According to tour organizer Package Eisterhold, a authentic estate advisor with Engel & Volkers Atlanta, this year’s tour has some of Druid Hills’ most attractive properties, which include the “Driving Miss out on Daisy” house at 822 Lullwater Street.
Now owned by Jim and Cyndy Roberts, the Tudor-model household has been almost unchanged due to the fact it was built in 1920 and when it was employed as the household of the title character in the Academy Award-successful film starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.
Eisterhold claimed yet another tour-cease not to miss out on is the back garden at 797 Springdale. “It’s well-known in the community for acquiring tens-of-thousands of bulbs planted and Japanese maples. Golf legend Bobby Jones was married in that backyard garden.”
Famed architect Neel Reid created the French Manor house at 1348 Fairview, which Eisterhold phone calls “one of the finest in the community.” It was originally owned by an heir to Rich’s Department Store.
A different observed architect, Arthur Neil Robinson, created the Tudor at 1296 Fairview, which will come with a scandalous heritage. Eisterhold mentioned C.S. Carnes, an accountant for the Southern Baptist Conference, acquired the property with embezzled cash that in today’s pounds would volume to much more than $12 million.
Eisterhold explained the Tudor-model “estate home” at 1741 S. Ponce, which faces Olmsted Linear Park, as a “showstopper.”
