Another Neel Reid Druid Hills house. This one is across the street from last week's house of the week. It was built in 1917 for the Louis Regenstein family and is Italianate in style.
From J. Neel Reid Architect , by William R. Mitchell : "Characteristic of Reid's work was the concentration of a few boldly scaled ornamental elements at focal points on otherwise comparatively plain facades. There is often a hipped roof, villa-like rectangular horizontality, a central block with side porches, sometimes wings, placed in landscape garden settings reached through french doors, very much in the manner of 'casual classicism' of Charles Platt. ...nearly always with the Italian Renaissance villa set in the back of his mind." (pg 74).
The house was for sale recently, here are interior photos from that listing.
