This Week’s Over-The-Top Property: Inman Park Icon
In this weekly feature on Clicks & Mortar, we bring you the most notable or interesting property we can find in the Atlanta metro area. This week’s featured over-the-top property is…
Built in the 1890s by British-turned-Atlantan ice magnate John M. Beath for his Bostonian bride-to-be (who ended up never marrying the poor guy), this imposing three-story Queen Anne Victorian home is known as Beath-Dickey House. The whimsical red and white mansion with its rounded, cupola-topped turret has always been a Euclid Street icon, but its latest claim to fame emerged in 1969 when it became the first Inman Park home to be restored to its original glory. This rejuvenation sparked a restoration trend that grew in popularity in the 1970s and 1980s, and by the 1990s picturesque Inman Park had become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in intown Atlanta. This home is where it all started.
Aside from all of the fantastic historic details one might expect from a property with this much history, recent updates completed over the past decade include spa-worthy bathrooms, a four-car garage, and a backyard complete with swimming pool and fountain-bedecked koi pond. Its spectacular chef’s kitchen remodel was featured in the November 2003 issue of HOME magazine. You can also read more about it in Elle Decor.
I wonder if the pipe organ is included.
