Real estate is a reoccurring theme throughout my blog posts..... I've written previously about preserving period homes, published homes listed for sale and highlighting terrific before & after projects. Well today, it's my turn to talk about our home in the Druid Hills neighborhood of town hitting the market.
We have decided to sell our home within the Emory Grove hamlet after 11 years of ownership. Emory Grove is an absolutely charming neighborhood, consisting of 2 private/hidden parks -- one with a playground & pavilion area and one with a tennis court, playing field & our Community Garden. It's within walking distance to Emory University and the CDC, and part of the highly desirable Fernbank School district.
We purchased the home in 2005 and completely redesigned the interior to reflect a more current style. The spaces have been thoughtfully reworked to accommodate the 2 bedroom and 1 bath floor plan, even adding a separate water closet within the bathroom. There is a detached 2 car garage and additional artists studio space beyond.
*Couple of design details to note..... Mr. Ferguson designed & built the media cabinet in the Living Room (to the right of the fireplace), he built me the chunky bookshelves (due to my book obsession) and he designed & built the floating bathroom vanity. Also, many of the trees and plants around the exterior are from the Trees Atlanta annual tree/plant sale..... And the large River Birch Tree (which when planted was much smaller) by the back deck was given to me 10 years ago by my mentor, a noted American antiques dealer.
