I Can’t Wait for the Peachtree Garden Club’s Christmas Home Tour!

Okay, I’ve admitted that I was raised on tours of homes. I remember one in Central Georgia that my mother took me to at about 12. It was an old antebellum home that was decorated for Christmas. I was overwhelmed by the charm of the old home and the wonderful decorations that complemented the architecture.

This is why I am so excited about the Peachtree Garden Club’s Christmas Home Tour! What a delightful way to get in the Christmas spirit!!

They will have four homes on the tour, with the first one at 1 Cherokee Road, being a beautiful Neel Reid built in 1921!! Joy!! The Garden Club’s website says that this home was one of the first constructed in the area.

The second home at 25 Cherokee Road has a four story spiral staircase! I can’t wait to see her lovely antiques and staircase that took eight months to build!

The home at 3671 Tuxedo Road was saved from the wrecking ball and has been renovated, updated, and expanded. I just love it when people invest in the past and preserve for the future!

3241 Rilman Lake Court is a newer home designed jointly by Spitzmiller and Norris and Suzanne Kasler. I am sure this will be a lovely, soothing decor and can’t wait to see it in Christmas splendor!

Visit the Garden Club’s website to order your tickets or learn how to get them at the door. I’ll see you there!


7 Cherokee Road – One of Atlanta’s truly Spectacular Homes

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to see a truly remarkable home in Atlanta.  Neel Reid is my favorite architect of all time. He designed this home in 1922 and it has truly become one of Atlanta’s grand dames of homes! 
Notice the symmetry of the house as you enter the property…
Doesn’t the Palladian look like a scene from Pride and Prejudice?
And so does this dining room! Amazing!
There is no picture of this on the agent’s website, but there is a ladies’ sitting room with an amazing fireplace just behind the dining room where I can just imagine the ladies could gossip over sherry, tea, or cocktails! 
The living room is a soothing, light, spa blue. It is even more dramatic in person. Just lovely! 
There are more pictures on the agent’s website. I live for Beacham Realty’s lovely catalog to make it’s way to my house! I think I’ll make tea and browse her website for a while! What a delight!
