Summer Escape: Inside three beautiful Southern lake houses

Three families, three locations, and three beautiful lakeside summer homes. Take a tour inside.

House Envy: This modern masterpiece was designed by Georgia architect Robert Green, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last apprentices

If you’re a fan of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, then this midcentury-modern home in Buckhead may be the closest thing to his work you’ll find in Atlanta.
Retro Kirkwood house

Everything about this Kirkwood Craftsman has a retro-modern, 1950s feel

In 2006, Stephanie Nase began her search for a charming bungalow in Virginia-Highland before moving on to Inman Park and Candler Park. One day, she happened to drive across DeKalb Avenue from Candler Park into Kirkwood. The very next day, she snagged an early 1900s Craftsman bungalow. After living there for nine years and focusing on outdoor projects, Stephanie decided to lighten up the interiors next.
High contrast

Touches of drama and hits of black: This Buckhead abode has a high-contrast edge

Ten years ago, no one would have expected a fusion of modern and industrial looks to thrive in a traditional house in Buckhead—particularly with the color black as a dominant theme. But the house that Anna Wooten Loggins (formerly with Amy Morris Interiors) designed for the Harrison family does just that.
Midcentury Madness

Midcentury-modern houses are in demand in Atlanta—and at a higher premium

It’s no secret that midcentury-modern furniture is back in vogue. But now, the era’s ranch-style and split-level homes are selling better than ever, according to Vanessa Reilly of Atlanta boutique real estate firm DOMO Realty. Although midcentury modern homes can be found throughout Atlanta, she notes that the majority are close to I-285, with the highest concentrations in the neighborhoods of Amberwood, Collier Heights, Northcrest, and Northwoods.
Lustron

Life in a Lustron: My futuristic steel prefab in Decatur is not for sale

Investors must view our property as the perfect tear-down. After all, it’s a strange, dated home on a large, attractive lot near Decatur Square. But this is a historical Lustron, a modular kit designed completely in steel—from interior walls to roof shingles—during the housing shortages following World War II, in an era when metal was reserved for commercial buildings and instruments of war.

House Envy: Former residence of legendary Georgia Tech football coach Bobby Dodd is up for sale

Built in 1904, the 3,763-square foot house, once owned by famed Georgia Tech football coach Bobby Dodd, not only has an abundance of curb appeal, but also features well-proportioned rooms, architectural details, and lush landscaping. Moreover, it boasts a prime location within steps of Piedmont Park, the Atlanta BeltLine, and the Ansley Golf Club.
Buckhead Tuxedo Park house

Natural Wonder: Step inside a creekside, glass-walled abode in Buckhead’s Tuxedo Park

New homeowners of the heavily wooded 2.5 acres in Buckhead’s tony Tuxedo Park razed the 1971 residence to its original foundation. Harrison Design Modern Studio Director Robert Tretsch conceptualized a new house on the same footprint, which gently meanders toward the creek. An anomaly for the 21st century, this rambling layout has the effect of making the residence appear much more humble than its nearly 14,000 square feet—at least when viewed from the street.
Von Hoene home

A fashion industry couple gave their midcentury Decatur cottage a glamorous touch

As quick as the click of a Canon’s shutter, fashion photographer Liz Von Hoene decided to buy her 1952 house in Decatur’s Parkwood neighborhood. Liz and her partner, Rebecca Weinberg, are no strangers to style. Liz shoots for high-end clients like Neiman Marcus, and Rebecca is an Emmy-winning wardrobe stylist best known for outfitting Carrie and company on the HBO series Sex and the City.

Set on a half-acre lot that was previously home to an apartment building, the house was designed by the cutting-edge architecture team Cara Cummins and Jose Tavel of TaC Studios.
