Featured Neighborhood: Northcrest
Atlanta has traditionally been known for its brick bungalows, English Tudors and antebellum-style homes. Here in the “City of Trees” a California contemporary style home is a rare find. However a couple of miles up I-85 and off Northcrest Road there is a little architectural secret full of mid-century modern homes. Northcrest is a sprawling, multi-phase swim/tennis community with gently swaying pines, fluorescent azaleas and vintage cars parked under shady carports.
Inspired by futuristic designs of Joseph Eichler and Frank Lloyd Wright, each home was built specifically for the over-sized lot it sits on.
