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.
An elegant but unassuming Greek Revival home on West Wesley Road is perhaps the oldest house in Buckhead. Actually, it was built in Resaca, located near Calhoun in Northwest Georgia. In the 1950s, Atlanta contractor Joseph Walker and his wife drove by and fell instantly in love with the abandoned, antebellum home.
