A teardown in Inman Park. Are you kidding?
When we dream, we talk Ansley Park, Candler Park, Peachtree Hills, Morningside, Midtown, Virginia Highland, Oakhurst, Kirkwood, Winona Park, MAK. In the end it's always: "We want to live in Inman Park." But there's isn't room for all of us.
Property records say the old house was built in 1917, 1,603 square feet on a 0.11 acre lot.
The new house was designed by Adam Stillman Residential Design, built by Cablik Enterprises, the building permit shows 2,302 square feet.
This is a stunningly small house by today's intown teardown standards. But it fits. At nearby 836 Euclid they are building 4,162 square feet on .2 acre, but it also fits.
The old house was blue and boarded up.
It was embedded in the vegetation and in the context of the street. It's the house on the left.
There wasn't a driveway. The houses seem like a mass planting, growing together. This is an "old" look.
You just can't do a new house without a driveway so the new house is narrower to accommodate it. On this hill the driveway requires these abrupt retaining walls. It's a startling effect but landscaping will soften them over the years.
I liked the old place but if it had to go...
...this is pretty darn good and better in person.
It's within sight of this infill which also had to fit.
Drawing Is Easy, Building Is Hard
