Last week my friend Rodolfo Castro let me know about the Buckhead in Bloom Home Tour, put on by the Atlanta Preservation Center. It takes place on Sunday, April 11th from Noon-5pm (the website says it was last weekend, but it just hasn't been updated). Check out Helen Young’s blog Whitehaven for more information.
You can buy tickets the day of the event at the first stop, 205 West Paces ferry Road.
This year one of our best listings is on the tour, 80 Valley Road. This graceful Southern estate is listed by Glennis Beacham. Clem Ford designed it, and it sits on more than 4 acres. Don't miss this once in a lifetime chance to tour the inside and the gardens of the home...
Check out some of the highlights:

Here is the half bath on the way to the office. Isn't this fancy!

Here is the office with fireplace.
And the fireplace detail...
The formal living room, which spans the back of the home, opens to the grand back porch.
Since it’s on the Buckhead in Bloom tour, the gardens must be fantastic, and they are!
The porch overlooks the flat manicured back yard and aviary. Can you See the aviary? It's to the right. Can you imagine a better place to spend a lazy afternoon? I can't... but there's more!
This is a fountain between the back lawn and the pool.
And the pool, of course!
There is an elevated private garden with quaint wood fence and fountain just off the main lawn.
These photos came from that private garden, but to see the secret garden yourself, you will need to go on the tour!
See you Sunday?
Thanks again to Rodolfo for spreading the word about the tour!
P.S. Right now I am in Birmingham getting "The Beacham Series" printed. I am working on a shot by shot explanation of how we get the magazine from the computer on to paper. It is very cool, so come back soon.
