A True Vinings Family Home at 2727 Lansdowne Lane SE 30339


If you are looking for a home where your family can really put down roots, this elegant traditional with cedar shingle siding and stonework exterior may be the home for you. It’s a classic Atlanta family home with a gracious, luxurious open-plan interior and an incredible outdoor living area. And a recent price reduction makes it an even more attractive option!


Quality construction, luxurious finishes, and impeccable attention to detail are the hallmarks of John Willis built homes and 2727 Lansdowne Lane is no exception. It is located in a family-friendly swim/tennis community but with all the amenities the home has to offer, you may never want to leave!


The main floor living areas are open floor plan: dining, kitchen and living are light and bright with 10ft. ceilings and tall thermal-pane windows. Inlay details in the hardwood floors and ceiling molding create individual spaces without interrupting the flow. One of the home’s three gas fireplaces anchors the family room and kitchen, bringing a cosy feeling to the space.


The eat-in kitchen is stunning. Rich hardwood cabinetry with modern hardware and top-of-the-line appliances include double ovens and a large wine cooler. The large island  is the hub of the main floor, looking out at both the family room with its fireplace and the breakfast room with views of the terrace and pool  beyond.


The home has more intimate spaces too: a light-filled library or music room and a keeping room with a fireplace on the main floor offer quiet and privacy.


The spacious master suite has soaring vaulted ceilings; the suite’s private sitting area has its own gas fireplace.


The adjoining bathroom is huge with large double vanities, large walk-in shower, soaking tub, and two large walk-in closets.


All of the home’s bedrooms are generously sized, light and bright. The main floor bedroom suite makes for a flexible floor plan for visitors or as a possible master.


This home has not only a full daylight basement (future media room?), but also has a bright, light-filled fitness center. Call your trainer and get fit in the privacy of your own home!


Vaulted timber ceiling gives the poolside terrace the feel of a mountain lodge. Gather around the fireplace as the fall brings cooler evenings to watch the baseball play-offs on the outdoor entertainment center. The adjoining gas grill makes outdoor living, dining, and entertaining seamless.


The pool and spa area is beautifully landscaped; detailed stonework, an irrigation system, waterfalls for soothing ambient noise, and an automatic cover for the pool makes this a low-maintenance oasis.

A visit is always the best way to get a feel for a place and with as many details as this home offers, it’s really a must!  For more photos and details, check out the full listing on my website but I encourage you to call me to set up a time to view this wonderful home.

Timeless Southern Porches



There are few things that say “Southern charm” like a comfortable, shady porch. There is something really special about enjoying an iced tea or a glass of wine, having a relaxed weekend meal, or relaxing with a book outdoors on the porch. They say “welcome to my home” and create a timeless first impression.

Although our summers can be hot, living in Atlanta means we get at least three seasons of use out of our porches.

As a realtor, I’m seeing the screened in porch as a big draw for potential buyers as well. Not only does a porch keep some of the harsh sunlight and heat out of your home, but a screened porch adds a lot of usable indoor/outdoor living space for a fraction of the cost of a home addition.

Southern porches can be as simple as a covered patio on the front of the house to a screened room with luxurious furnishings and a fireplace, surround sound, and entertainment center.

Furnishings are usually casual with comfort in mind. Rocking chairs are always welcome and it’s hard to go wrong with a porch swing.

Adding a ceiling fan can really enhance the comfort level and screening in a porch keeps out pests and makes outdoor dining a breeze. What could be better than summer entertaining with an outdoor kitchen and dining area on a porch?


My listing at 2741 Vinings Orchard Circle has incredible porches on every level of the home

There is a style of porch for every architectural style too, from rustic to neoclassical, low country to modern. Even pool houses and walk-out basement entrances are getting the screened porch treatment.

Adding shutters is a classic touch that also creates more privacy on a porch (and is a great place for kids to camp out during sleepovers).

Architectural and style trends may come and go, but a classic southern element like a great porch is timeless.

This gorgeous Tuxedo Park home located on one of the most prestigious streets in Atlanta was a great find for one of my clients! This 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom home with luxury finishes is on a large lot with an indoor/outdoor flow perfect for entertaining.

I knew that they were in the market for a really exceptional property and when I discovered that that this home would be available for sale, I wanted to get them in to see it as soon as possible. We were thrilled to be able to see this one just before it hit the market and my client was quick enough to snag it right away.

This is a great example of why working with an experienced realtor can really make a difference;  you may be able to find your dream home even if it hasn’t hit the market yet!

The Atlanta market has really been heating up lately and I’d love to help you find exactly what you want in a home. And please let me know if you’re even thinking about buying or selling your Atlanta area home! While you hear me talking about Buckhead and Vinings real estate all the time, I have lots of experience throughout metro Atlanta including Smyrna, “Smynings”, Mableton, Sandy Springs,  Ansley Park, Midtown and now even Towne Lake!.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices April Real Estate Video Update for Vinings


Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has released its video market update for Vinings real estate in April.

What I notice most is that things that have been sitting on the market are finally moving as prices have dropped to accommodate what buyers are willing to pay.  New listings coming on the market (if priced correctly) are selling immediately. Buyers that have been sitting out there waiting for something to come on the market this spring, are finally buying.   I think you’ll see a big uptick in these numbers come May for closings.  The dramatic drops you’re seeing are due to lack of new inventory entering the market.

November Real Estate Update for Vinings and Buckhead

October real estate transaction volume is down in Vinings and Bulkhead, but not as severely as it was in September and August which was dramatically down month over month and year over year.

Vinings numbers are somewhat misleading as the transaction volume has been so low that percentages don’t seem relevant.  The most notable thing to me was that the average sales price was under $800k, which says the main things selling are pretty close to lot prices, not so much resales.

In Buckhead, sales were down 14% year over year and 8% month over month.  Buckhead is a much bigger market, so its most likely a seasonal dip in sales and a lack of inventory in the year over year sales.

April 2014 Real Estate Market Update

Here is the real estate market update for April. These stats are very general by area. Various price points are moving much faster than others. In Vinings, the over $2M price point had about a 4 year inventory in January, and while it is finally moving, it’s still at about a 2 year inventory level. Because of this, I see those prices continuing to drop, while the lower price points are holding steadier now.
