In 1961, the writer, Eugenia Price, visited St. Simons Island, Georgia during a book signing tour and fell in love with the island. By 1965, she had moved to St. Simons.
Her home was a plantation style home with an upper and lower porch, and it sat on several acres of land overlooking salt creeks and marshes. The entrance to the property features a farm gate.
The front yard for the home still features a mossy live oak in the front yard, and it features an expansive veranda out back, which is perfect for entertaining.
We transformed this one-story home on Iverson Street into a wider two-story home with a front and back porch and a proper, paved driveway.
In addition to structural changes to the home, we updated the landscaping and added small brick walls along the edges of the yard to help define the borders of the property.
The home now features 4 bedrooms and two new bathrooms, and the flooring was updated. The kitchen has also been completely remodeled with new cabinetry, lighting, and countertops.
This beautiful and historic Victorian Style home located in Atlanta, GA has been restored after being burned down by the previous owner.
When we began the process, there wasn't much left of the home, and it was on the verge of collapsing. Amazingly, the wooden floors were able to be saved, although much of the plaster walls, ceiling and lath wood had to be replaced.
