Historic Druid Hills Home and Garden Tour

THE HISTORIC DRUID HILLS Home and Garden Tour is back and better than ever! The unique neighborhood, designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, was almost erased by the construction of a highway. Instead, the community fought fiercely to preserve and protect Druid Hills. Even as it has evolved with the needs of today’s world, they are grateful that the spirit and soul of Olmsted’s original vision for their neighborhood are still thriving. This year’s Tour showcases 11 stunning examples of faithful Druid Hills stewardship through clever adaptive reuse of original estate homes, meticulous restoration, and thoughtful realization of their neighborhood’s historic preservation guidelines in new construction.

You never know what this 12,000 sq. ft. Tudor was actually built in 2003!

This Georgian style mansion is actually a duplex, and both homes are featured on the Tour this year.

Part of the Historic Adair Estate, this home is in the main mansion. It’s one of 15 residences, converted from the original estate homes and outbuildings.

This recently renovated beauty was at one time converted into 4 apartments, as many Druid Hills homes were in the 1950s – 80s.

When this 3 acre property was developed the main house became a duplex and four “cottage houses” were built behind.

This established family garden is a must-see! The owners are avid gardeners and over the years, have completed multiple phases of landscaping to create the current combination of features you’ll see.
