One of Vining’s classic homes in one of Vining’s most desirable neighborhoods is on the market for the first time in its history. This home was custom built with love and incredible attention to detail by the sellers, who are now looking to pass a bit of their family history forward.
With four sides of brick, this traditional home is timeless in more ways than one. Built to incorporate century-plus antique heart pine flooring from the seller’s parent’s home, this home is a legacy looking for its next caretaker.
The beautiful wide-plank flooring is found throughout most of the home. A traditional floorplan, the formal living spaces flank the entry hall and beautiful staircase, while the kitchen and keeping room look out over the greenery in the back yard.
Wainscotting, detailed woodwork, and functional shutters are among the lovely and well-kept details throughout the home. The rooms are beautifully proportioned with a lot of natural light in every room.
Fully renovated, the kitchen has high quality custom cabinetry, granite countertops and plenty of integrated lighting. Other amenities are a generous double sink, center island, and cabinet paneled appliances.
The kitchen and breakfast room also open onto the screened porch for 3 season indoor/outdoor living.
Adjacent to the kitchen is an enormous laundry room, with generous built-in storage, expansive granite worktops, and plenty of extra room for a freezer or beverage refrigerator.
The family room, anchored by an arched brick fireplace and hearth, opens onto the home’s expansive screened porch. The stunning heart pine flooring continues through this room as well, adding warmth and depth to the space.
Decks are great, but a screened porch in the south cannot be beat! Shaded in the summer and sheltered in cooler months, it becomes an extension of the home’s living areas with the added bonus of breeze and bird song.
While the home is at the top of a large hilly lot, the areas just off the screened porch and the walkout basement are flat and landscaped, making for a usable private space for bird watching or gardening and plenty of play area for children and pets.
With a full master suite on each floor, which include ensuite bathrooms and walk- in closets, living arrangements are flexible and future-proofed, ready for aging in place or multi-generational living.
The secondary bedrooms are also generously sized and there is room for expansion over the garage.
While the walk-out basement is finished and comfortable (with another brick fireplace to chase away any chill) there are stubbed-in utilities for another bathroom, ready for expansion. The home was custom built in 1975 and underwent extensive renovations about 15 years ago including mechanical upgrades, adding a house vac system and an automatic generator to seamlessly handle any power outages.
Set on almost an acre, the wooded lot is private and quiet. 4270 Lansdowne Drive is on a double cul de sac street in an already quiet neighborhood, meaning through traffic (and traffic noise in general) is non-existent.
Close to Cochise Club, Vinings Village, many of the areas best private schools, and in a quiet and walkable neighborhood, this home has a lot to offer, both in location and in impeccably maintained square footage. If you are interested in more details, visit the listing at my website and give me a call to set up an in-person viewing.

Welcome home to Inman Park, one of Atlanta’s classic neighborhoods! Atlanta’s original “streetcar suburb,” Inman Park is an enclave of historic homes in the center of many of the city’s most vibrant and desirable destinations for dining and recreation. Walk to the Eastside Beltline or Krog City Market, or hop onto Freedom Park trail, you can walk, cycle, or take MARTA to work or to play.
Formerly a duplex, this vintage home was reconfigured into a spacious single family by the current owners. Updated interiors and mechanicals were integrated with the charm and details of the original 1920’s construction, including bead board ceilings, a classic staircase, and generous millwork.
The first floor opens to a living room and adjoining enclosed sunroom. Hardwood floors and beautifully trimmed windows and doorways showcase the homes vintage charm.
Tucked between the the living room and kitchen is a full dining room with plenty of room for a large family table.
The kitchen has a high ceilings and a bank of windows overlooking the side yard; updated appliances, open shelving, and full laundry are crisp and convenient.
Bedrooms, bathrooms, and living spaces are divided between the first and upper floor, making for a very flexible floor plan. Work from home? There is plenty of quiet space for a home office, studio, or just a place to indulge your house plant addiction.

A generous double lot means you aren’t sacrificing outdoor greenspace for parking at this home.
Single family homes that combine the advantages of an established, tree lined neighborhood with easy access to some of Atlanta’s most dynamic restaurants and recreation are rare- finding that combination under a $1 million pricepoint is unheard of. I’d love to schedule a viewing to show you all that this property has to offer. Take a look at the listing (with a video walkthrough!) here and call me to set up an appointment today.

This is a repost from 2016. My son is now 17 and a Junior at the Westminster Schools. Its a very special week and I wanted to share this story and pictures again for new followers. This is what I’m most Thankful for this year and always.
This is National Adoption Day and November is National Adoption Month. For me its also a special week, Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to reflect on what we’re thankful for, but to me it means a whole lot more. Here is my story:
Adopting one child will not change the world; but for that child, the world will change.
11 years ago my mom and I made the trip to Kemerovo, Russia to bring home my son. Attached is a story that I wrote back then for my adoption agency. This week always reminds me of that journey and ALL I have to be Thankful for. I can’t believe it was that long ago!
The Journey for Chase :
My journey to adopt a child unofficially began in 2003. I made the trip to Bulgaria with my sister-in-law to bring home her two children. From then on I had the idea that I wanted to adopt a child from an Eastern European country. Finally in 2004 when I was preparing my year-end financials, I decided I would finally be able to afford the process and had a consistent enough income to support a child on my own.
I am single. So in January of 2005 I began the process with a local agency here in Atlanta thinking they could help me through the process. By April, I had all of my paperwork done and was “paper ready”, that agency sent my dossier to one Russian Region, where it sat… Week after week I heard different reasons why nothing was happening in that region and that it would pick up any day, but by the middle of July I was getting tired of the excuses and decided to network around and inquire online to find out about what agencies had people traveling and to what regions etc. A friend recommended me to Adoption ARK (now out of business due to Russia being closed to adoptions), she put me in touch with several people who were traveling within very short times from becoming “paper ready”. I contacted Elina and she was in Russia at the time and a week later she emailed me and told me they weren’t currently working in Krasnodar (that was the region I had done the paperwork for with the other agency) since nothing had been moving there in such a long time. She also told me that she expected to have some more children available next week and to contact her that Wednesday. Well by Monday evening, I had an email with a picture of this darling little boy – Dima. I asked what I had to do, she sent me a list and I was off on recreating my dossier, and getting everything ready for his different region.
I traveled within 2 weeks to meet him, a darling little boy whose name was Dima and went back for court within 7 weeks. From beginning to end the process was under 3 months! My little guy – (now called Chase) is healthy, happy and so loved by the entire extended family. We’ve been home 3 months now and he acts like he’s been here his whole life. He gained 5 pounds in 2 months and grew 2 inches. He has already outgrown the clothes I brought him home in and understands English and Spanish (his nanny is Spanish). He speaks a few words and kisses good-bye. He is the light of my life and he has the ability to cheer anyone up. Everyone keeps saying how happy he is and he really is…
The picture of Chase in his reindeer was the first night in our hotel in Kemerovo. We had given him as much formula as he wanted and he proceeded to throw up on me! The picture in the tub was at home. The other pictures were a few weeks later when he made the trip to Charleston to meet all the family.
I still remember that week and what happened daily. My Mom and I flew out on a Saturday evening arriving in Kemerovo on a Monday morning. They immediately whisked us off to my court date which took most of the morning. Later that day there was more paperwork to do and the next morning (Tuesday) we made the journey with several other families via a van to Novokuznetsk. We had issues with the Van with fuel line freeze up and we sat on the side of the road in Siberia while they sent another van to us. By the time we got to the baby home it was afternoon. No time for a tour, but I do remember seeing this beautiful baby in a light blue knit outfit and my mother and I commented on pretty he was. It had only been a month since we had seen “Dima” but that was him. No time for a tour, we got our babies and they loaded us back into our van to head back to Kemerovo for more processing. By Thursday on Thanksgiving we were in Moscow to meet with the embassy doctor and more processing. There was no turkey to be found at any of the hotels or restaurants we had contacted. So we just ate a regular meal in the Park Hyatt Hotel in Moscow. All went well and Friday we were headed home! That’s a very abbreviated version of what happened, but as you can see it makes every Thanksgiving that much more special with the memories. Hope you have a very special Thanksgiving this year as well full of your special memories!
Timeless, private, luxurious: 876 Crest Valley Drive is a home apart, with the look and feel of a Mediterranean villa, surrounded by private, level grounds, and anchored by a spectacular indoor/ outdoor stone veranda and infinity pool area.
The first impression is straight out of the south of France or Spain’s Costa del Sol, with the tile roof echoed in the deep arched doorways and windows. The elegant facade is underscored by quality concrete construction, copper gutters, and all new home systems.
As you step inside, a gorgeous staircase sweeps upward in the center hall; dining and living rooms open through arched doorways on either side of the hall and then you are drawn forward toward the oversize french doors opening out onto the veranda.
Warm stone floors run throughout most of the home’s living areas and the light plaster walls are punctuated by rich, dark wood doors and trim.
Arches and curves are a key element to the home’s aesthetic, from the staircase to the doorways and windows. You’ll find these lovely details echoed throughout the home, starting with the entrance.
The loggia runs along the rear of the house, bathed with light from its wall of windows and doors and overlooking the outdoor space, verandas, pool, and lawns.
Elegant but casual, the living room has soaring windows overlooking green space and a fountain, on one side and a grand limestone fireplace on the other.
It adjoins both the informal round breakfast room on one side and the kitchen on the other.
The open kitchen is a masterpiece: impeccable finishes and appliances, it flows seamlessly with the elegant living room adjacent to it. Separate full refrigerator and freezer and a butlers pantry provide for all of your storage needs and doorways out to the covered veranda make outdoor meals a breeze. There is a yet-to-be-used brick built pizza oven just outside as well!
With practically acres of burnished counter tops, the island works as a serving area for parties, a spot for a quick bite to eat, or a wonderful workspace for the chef to create.
Handcrafted just outside Paris, the La Cornue range with its deep enamel finish and brass accents has double ovens and a custom hood, truly a chef’s dream.
The home’s formal dining room has space to easily seat ten or more. Niches for art, chandeliers and open fireplace create the perfect ambiance for a dinner party or memorable holiday gathering.
Rich wood panelling and darker wood floors transition the bar and study from the airy elegance of the kitchen and entertaining spaces to a cozier, more intimate room.
The intricate and detailed woodwork and oversized fireplace maintain the richness of the home’s aesthetic, complimenting the airiness in the living and dining rooms.
There are six brick-built limestone fireplaces throughout the home, with beautifully carved surrounds, each unique and proportioned to its space.
The spectacular vaulted owner’s suite is on the main floor – an entire wing of the house, in fact – with direct access to the veranda. Plaster, stone, and arching windows surround you with light and space; wide plank wooden floors, natural beams, and limestone fireplace add warmth and texture.
The adjoining bath is in an atrium-like space, clad in light marble and mosaic tile finishes; deep soaking tub, separate shower, and dressing areas complete the suite.
With brushed silver accents and an abundance of natural light, the bath is subtle and serene, yet incredibly luxurious.
Upstairs in the central part of the home are four ensuite bedrooms. Connected by a hall and balcony overlooking the pool area and sweeping lawn and trees, each has private balcony access via double french doors.
The outdoor living areas are just as spectacular as the interior, with a covered portico and seating around a large fireplace, then stepping down to the veranda surrounding the infinity edge pool. With multiple seating areas and wide doorways connecting to the interior rooms, it is really a seamless entertaining space with plenty of room for outdoor lounging and dining.
Surrounded by stonework and overlooking the lawn, the pool’s waterfall and natural look finish create a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere. The pool house contains two of the home’s bedrooms and has the option to be expanded with a second floor.
Unusual in the area’s hilly terrain, the level two-acre lot is perfect for children or pets to run and play. Fully fenced and secure, the estate is your own private oasis.
With a property of this level of detail, it’s impossible to fully appreciate without seeing it in person. For more information on this unique property, you can take a look at the listing on my website and then reach out for an appointment to view. I will be showing to qualified buyers this week, so please reach out for more information.

The real estate market in Vinings has never been hotter! The spectacular home at 3753 Cochise Drive, Atlanta, GA closed just over 2 weeks ago for what I am hearing is the highest sale price ever in Vinings, somewhere just under $5 million!
And speaking of neighborhoods, this location is unbeatable: 5 acres of beautiful Chattahoochee riverfront property adjacent to the Cochise Swim and Tennis Club. And just across the river in Buckhead is Tyler Perry’s former home, another record-setting Atlanta real estate sale.
The Vinings real estate market has been consistently strong with great resale values over many years, and its always exciting to see that trend continue! I will post more details as they become available.
Coming to the market in mid-March, here is a sneak preview of my latest listing, a spacious 5 bedroom / 5 bathroom home on a quiet cul-de-sac. You won’t want to miss it!
This brick traditional with updated kitchen and bathrooms has a large, private yard, complete with a landscaped fire pit area and plenty of room for a pool.
On almost .75 acres, the home will be offered at $995,000.
Gracious living space and a study on the main floor, family bedrooms on the second floor, with a play room or home gym in the partially finished walk-out basement make this a versatile, livable floor plan.
This home is currently rented until the end of July.
I’ll be posting many more details soon so keep an eye out for more information, or feel free to give me a call with any questions about this great property!

Traditional design with a modern feel, this spacious home feels better than brand new!
With a soothing color palette and site-finished hardwoods, the main floor is seamless, with an open family-friendly floor plan. Off the center entrance hall with high arched ceilings is the dining room and a sitting room, with the kitchen and family room to the rear of the house.
A stack stone fireplace and coffered ceilings frame the family room, which has a bank of windows overlooking the wooded back yard. Ebony finished built-ins add subtle drama to the room without detracting from the cohesive color palette.
The formal dining room has great details – high wainscoting, coffered ceiling and again, those gorgeous hardwoods. A butler’s pantry between the dining and kitchen keeps wine bottles handy for dinner parties.
This kitchen is really a show-stopper! The center island is huge, lit from above with designer pendants, with deep soft-close draws below for great storage options. It’s all about subtle details, with tonal cabinetry, stainless accents and a herringbone subway tile backsplash for a clean but luxe space.
A six burner Wolf range, deep stainless farmhouse double sink, and double ovens mean you’re ready for entertaining (or for Saturday morning pancakes!)
There is also a guest suite on the main floor for privacy and stair-free accommodations.
The landing at the top of the staircase is the hub of the second floor with four bedrooms and laundry room spoking off the hallway. Built-ins flank a step up playroom, carpeted for more comfortable playtime.
This bedroom with arched ceilings is being used as a sweet nursery currently, and would make a wonderful child’s room, just a few steps from the master and playroom.
Almost a full wing of the floor, the master suite has hardwoods, coffered ceilings and space for a seating area.
Take a look at this phenomenal bath! The walk-in shower with rain shower head flanks a deep soaker tub, and has a wood-look tile floor and surround.
Generous counter space and a double sinks with an abundance of cabinets keep everything stashed out of sight.
More of a dressing room than a walk-in closet, the built-ins keep your shoe and bag collection organized and displayed.
Head down to the lower level for full floor of entertaining, hobby, and relaxing space.
By “better than brand new,” I mean this basement build out: a full bar, media room, game room, home gym, and office have all been completed recently. A more casual feel than the main floor but with the same high spec finishes as the rest of the home, this daylight basement offers a lot of flexibility and space.
A large portion of the backyard is fully fenced, a secure space for children and pets. More recent upgrades to the home are landscaping and a flat play area with a cedar play structure.
Tucked away on a quiet side street, you have the benefits of a serene neighborhood but with easy access to I-85 for your commute.
This home checks all the boxes for space, luxury finishes, great floor plan, and great location. Take a look at the listing here for more details and, as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or to arrange a an in-person visit.

Walking into this home has the feel of entering the great hall of an old estate, with soaring beamed ceilings, wormy chestnut panelling, and a stone hearth at its heart! But this custom home creates a sense of place without sacrificing any modern amenities or location.
The timber framing is graceful, supporting a soaring vaulted ceiling across the entire main living space. A recent interior remodel was designed by award-winning residential designers Spitzmiller and Norris .
This room is dramatic from every angle, with a tall stone fire place anchoring a living area at one end, sweeping views over the lake on one side, and a handsome chef’s kitchen on the other.
Tucked into the side of the great hall, the kitchen has a large marble island, double chef’s range and dishwashers. The lowered ceiling brings a cosiness to the space while a bank of windows keeps the room full of light.
The dining room has the feel of a solarium, with floor to ceiling windows on three sides overlooking the lake. A pass through bar and fire place on one wall create a cosy enclosure without interfering with the flow to the living room just beyond.
This recent addition features dramatic vaulted beams which continue in the living room with another wall of glass overlooking the serene lake on one side and the lush plantings in the front of the home on the other.
The master suite is an entire wing of the house with a large bedroom, and beyond it, a private sitting room with the same vaulted ceilings and walls of windows as the solarium-like dining room. Warm chestnut panelling in the room reminds me of the grand old lake lodges in the Adirondacks, effortless but luxurious.
A deep, free-standing bath invites long soaks; two vanities and a walk-in shower, as well as custom built-ins in the large dressing room / closet are thoughtful amenities that bring luxury to the everyday.
Downstairs, past the wine cellar and office with fireplace, is a large suite with bedroom, lounge, and full bath; currently a home gym, it could be a private guest suite, with plenty of light and views of the lake.
Sheltered under the upper balcony is a rocking chair porch and a large dining area. Step down to two more patio areas with seating and room for a fire pit or outdoor yoga space.
Sloping down to the lake and dock, the home has a sunny upper deck, several large flagstone patios and a lawn at lakeside. Wander the path on down to the lake through mature trees and landscaping and enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail out on the dock. Looks like the good life to me!
This is a one of a kind home in an exceptional location. Private and peaceful, but you can also walk sidewalks to Vinings Village. It’s really a little slice of heaven! Take a look at the listing online for dozens of photos of this home and give me a call any time to arrange a viewing.

The elegant master suite has room for a king bed, coffered ceilings, and a seating nook for lounging.
Rich cabinetry, dual sinks, and an extra large shower in the master bath and huge walk-in closet complete the master suite.
