This stately Georgian-style house with the red door often attracts the eye of architecture fans—even if they don’t realize it was designed by historic architect Neel Reid. But this Druid Hills house also gets high praise from homeowner Donna Heilman for livability.
It was on nightly walk around their Druid Hills neighborhood in 2003 when David and Michele Wilson noticed a ‘for sale’ sign at 850 Oakdale Road. They had long admired the stately home, which was designed by revered Atlanta architect Neel Reid and built in 1915.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this gem was respectfully updated by noted architect Norman Askins.
Like many longtime Atlantans, Dan Belman and Randy Korando, owners of Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts, admire the work of iconic architect Neel Reid. A partner in the storied firm of Hentz, Reid & Adler, Reid died of a brain tumor at age 41 in 1926—but not before inspiring a generation of architects known as the Georgia Classicists.
This c. 1840 estate has been passed down through six generations of the Hansell familiy, though it was also once owned by noted architect Neel Reid, who lived here at the end of his life.
It’s not surprising that this Georgian beauty by famed Atlanta architect Neel Reid would be a favorite for designer Patricia McLean, a Shutze Award winner (which recognizes the region’s best in classic design). But this Buckhead home also has sentimental appeal for her.
Iconic Georgia architect Neil Reed created this mansion on 405 acres off West Paces Ferry. Some of the property later became home to the Governor's Mansion.
