    Dig the house and the furniture. Minus the flat screen. They just don’t seem to fit in. Oh well… What can we do?

      By the way, there are many more houses like this in the Crestview neighborhood just north east(?) of atlanta.

          Sorry about the name. I said Crestview, but it’s Northcrest as Amanda had mentioned. On the Northcrestmodern.com site, it shows other houses for sale in the neighborhood.

          This neighborhood is really unique for Georgia. As far as I’ve seen, there aren’t any full neighborhoods that offered a California modern styled plan. While there are other houses in Georgia that are Mid-Century California Modern inspired, they are really fairly rare. I know there are some in Macon, and in Savannah. However, I’ve not seen to many of them in all the years I lived there or my visits back.

      No clue, Beth! But I hope they find just as great of a home for all that fantastic furniture!

    This house is in Atlanta’s Northcrest neighborhood – built in the late 50s and 60s. There are a lot of really neat split levels in that area. I live in a neighborhood called Northwoods on the other side of the freeway that was built by one of the same developers. We don’t have as many of the split levels (most houses in my neighborhood are ranches), but there are some that are pretty clearly early prototypes of the one Ruth posted above.

      Do you live in a ranch, Joseph? Just curious. 🙂

        Ruth: I sure do! You can see a couple of pictures of it in the website link I included in this message. Built in 1953!

        Got a Zillow update about homes for sale in the Northwoods Neighborhood today, and there is one listed that has a lot of similarities to the one in Northwoods. It’s not staged as well, though. Check it out: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/14571689_zpid

    A house in my neighborhood, Northcrest (http://www.northcrestmodern.com/). There are several houses with this floor plan for sale right now. This house is quite spectacular though.

    This is a wonderful area in Atlanta with a large concentration of mid-cen homes. Here’s a website on the neighborhood.

    Go to Ourmodernmess.blogspot for a very similar house that is about a young couple renovating their house.

    Love the teak lamps and the ones that are shades within a shade – lovely. I’d love to find one of those, seen them before online and in George Burns and Gracie Allens living room on their tv show:)

    I love how the owners of this home kept everything in such good condition and didn’t remodel to the inth degree. We need more people like this in our world.
