From October 1-2, tour eight gorgeous homes in Ansley Park with unique stories to tell. The Ansley Park Tour of Homes is presented by One Museum Place, with the theme “History Still in Progress, ” as these eight homes exemplify Ansley Park’s inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
“Ansley Park is truly one of Atlanta’s gems! In honor of Ansley’s renewal of its spot on the National Registry of Historic Places, the 2016 Tour will showcase eight 100+ year old houses exemplifying the architectural revival styles that give Ansley Park its unique charm. It will be a treat for guests to see the beautiful interiors of these homes and to discover how livable they still are today,” says Jennifer Friese, Tour Co-Chair.The Tour includes some of Ansley Park’s oldest homes and features work by historically significant architects. While each of these homes has seen renovations that highlight the current and past owners’ personal styles, their architectural integrity has withstood the test of time.“We are thrilled to have One Museum Place as our Presenting Sponsor. The inclusion of One Museum Place Luxury Condominium on the Tour accentuates the juxtaposition of historical and contemporary architecture and styles of living that defines Ansley Park,” says Laura Palickar, Tour Co-Chair.
The Tour’s Presenting Sponsor, One Museum Place, is the soon to be completed luxury condominium located directly across from the High Museum of Art, highlighting the continuing evolution of Ansley Park.The Tour of Homes is open to the public on October 1 from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm and on October 2 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
