Fantastic location in the southern part of Buckhead, very close to Midtown. Historic home with lots of charm and unique characteristics. 1976 Northside Drive NW 30318 (at the intersection of Collier). This property is mostly rented out on a monthly basis to many actors/directors/producers that are in town to film movies.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a local couple that was raised in Atlanta. This location is perfect and was our home for 8 years. With lots of TLC and loving care, we rehabbed this house from being a 'tear down' to a TREASURE! It has been featured in several national magazines because of its unique characteristics. It it totally made of metal. That is right....metal. It is called a Lustron. This home was built in 1949 so travelers need to understand what they are renting. A forgiving person who can ignore a little draft. And as a disclaimer this is on a busy road so there can be street traffic.

Why the Owner Chose Atlanta:
I was born here, went to college here, started a thriving business here, and found true love here. But I’ve been to many other cities and countries and believe, wholeheartedly, that I live in the best city in the world. There’s just so much to do whether you love culture – museums, galleries, theater, music, nightclubs – or are drawn to more outdoor activities like hiking, biking, strolling through historic districts and/or checking out all the modern marvels. And it’s family friendly as well – zoos, children’s museums, and the Georgia Aquarium. Totally one of a kind. We hang our photo with suction cups and magnets. This property is on the National Historic Register.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On the National Register of Historic Places, this one-of-a-kind all-metal house is situated in the southern-most part of Buckhead, one of the most expensive zip codes in Atlanta; but, because it is practically in Midtown, the area’s nicknamed “Bucktown.” In addition to having the convenience of a two-car garage, the backyard is cute, and the front porch affords great privacy. A little backstory: over the course of eight wonderful years living here, we rehabbed this unique house from being a near “tear down” to a sparkling treasure that’s been featured in several national magazines. Given that it was originally built in 1949, be advised there may be the occasional draft. Also note it is on a busy street, so there can be traffic – but those are the only two downsides compared to innumerable upsides!
