Beautiful hardcoat and limestone facade of this 1960's James Means recasting of a 1912 Neel Reid design once located on Peachtree Road.

The stone driveway entrance to the home is one of Atlanta's prettiest.

The home is surrounded by mature trees offering shade with sunny spaces for the pool and tennis court on its 4.6 three-parcel property.

The stone motor court offers easy front door access and numerable parking spaces.

The work of three prominent architects are recognized for this architectural gem. Neel Reid designed a home on Peachtree Road near the Brookwood train station, and when it was torn down in the late 60's, James Means salvaged the parts to build the home as it looks today. In the late 1980's Norman Askins seamlessly designed a primary bedroom/bath addition and a drive-under garage.

The entry hall's marble floor, high ceilings, and curved staircase is immediately impressive.

The entry hall has beautifully carved french doors leading to the formal dining room on the left and to the living room on the right.

The decorative wood-carved doors were most likely salvaged from the original 1912 Neel Reid designed home.

Classic details at every turn with this view from the entry hall staircase.

The living room is designed to resemble a French salon with wood paneling, parquet floors, and a custom marble mantle.

Hidden paneled doors in the living room lead to the family room where there is a wet bar. The floor to ceiling French doors in the living room, found in every room on the first level, allow plenty of light.

An elegant dining room with wood parquet floors and classically detailed paneling seats twelve.

When the doors are open to the built-in living room cabinet, a panel between the dining room and kitchen can be open and used as a pass-through or buffet.
