Rare opportunity to acquire the restored classic home in Lake Claire that people have been admiring for years. Believed to be designed by one of Atlanta's most renowned female architects--Leila Ross Wilburn. After attending Agnes Scott College, Leila Ross Wilburn opened her own architecture firm in 1909. Her work was sought after in affluent Atlanta neighborhoods such as Druid Hills and Candler Park. Many of her buildings are listed among the finest examples of 20th Century architecture, and this home would be no exception. Corinthian columns adorn the front entrance, beautiful brick surrounds the home, and a dramatic barrel-tile roof contributes to this luxury home's curb appeal. The inside is equally impressive with archetictural elements such as divided glass windows & french doors, archways throughout, hardwood floors, fireplace, built-in bookcases, built-in pantry, art niches, beautiful chandeliers, and thick moldings. Other modern upgrades include sophisticated alarm system, surround sound speakers for most of the home, outdoor lighting, yard sprinkler system, and home water purification system. Interior stairs lead to the basement, which is perfect for all your storage needs. The home is located on a one-of-a-kind landscaped lot in City of Atlanta, Dekalb County. The home is on the border of Druid Hills, but is actually located in Lake Claire.

The formal foyer offers a beautiful fireplace, built-in art shelving, recessed lighting, and hardwood floors. Notice the archways. A perfect place to greet and entertain guests with views into the dining room, sunroom, and guest bedroom/office.

Lake Claire 3
The front entry into the formal foyer is incredible. Divided glass door and side lights are crowned by a magnificent leaded glass arched window. The home sits high atop a hill off of Lakeshore in Lake Claire so sitting on the front porch enjoying the fabulous Atlanta weather is a real pleasure.

This is a view from the guest bedroom/office through the front of the home. Notice the continuation of archways and open floorplan. Most historic homes do not offer this open floorplan, which is a must-have for today's home buyers. Formal open rooms in the front of the home are offset by more informal open den and kitchen in the back of the home.

The dining room is a perfect size and offers a stunning chandelier, art niches, and access to the sunroom.

The arches continue in the sunroom, with three walls of arched windows.

The guest bedroom, located on the other side of the foyer, is currently being used as a casual seating area. This large beautiful corner room with closet and french doors to the foyer area could be used as a guest bedroom, office, extra den, or play room.

The large corner bedroom in the back of the home has high windows for easy furniture placement, lots of light, easy access to the full size bathroom, and a huge double closet.
