House Envy: Own a piece of Roswell history with this antebellum farmhouse

The antebellum home—which now sits on a half-acre lot—retains many of its original features. The two front rooms are drenched with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling triple-hung windows, which once provided access to the deep front porch. Most of the original, wide-plank heart pine floors are intact throughout the 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom main house, which also boasts 4 fireplaces.

It’s going to take more than $45 million* to help Vine City

When it comes to building stuff, Atlanta’s got a great history of public-private partnership. Civic leaders come up with an idea, City Hall irons out the political wrinkles, and then Coke, Delta, the Home Depot, and other hometown companies contribute funding.

When Rick Baggenstoss spied the Craftsman-style bungalow on Holderness Street in Atlanta’s historic West End, he claims it was love at first sight.

House Envy: This one-of-a-kind home in Lake Claire is surrounded by nature

Cherie Restler says one of her favorite comments that she’s heard about her unique Lake Claire house was from a delivery man who said he felt like he was in Game of Thrones. After all, it’s not every day you approach a house via iron-spike-lined footbridge and knock on a windowless steel door.
Ponce City Market

Atlanta’s micro apartments are in high demand

Atlantans love big houses, so wouldn’t the thought of living in 600 square feet (or less) induce claustrophobia? Hardly, say the managers of upscale new apartment communities from Buckhead to Inman Park, where micro rentals are in high demand at premium prices.

Vacation Home Community Snapshot: Kiawah Island

Home to 300 species of birds, Kiawah is committed to both nature and luxury. Despite an environmental study that approved 12,000 residential units, the master plan allows for fewer than half of them to be built.
