Fun Update on this House of the Week

We love it when our readers comment and especially when the owners of the houses of the week let us know more about their houses. The owner of this wonderful house emailed to let us know that the house was built in the 1930's and it's a Shutze!!

I'm posting his comment below - thank you Pete for updating us and we would love a tour of the house if you ever feel so inclined.

Actually our home was built in the early 1930's. We bought it in 1992. Philip Shutze indeed was the architect, he built it for his niece who lived in it until 1990. Not your typical Shutze mansion...even better. There are 6 original fireplaces and we added a 7th in our kitchen/family room renovation. Shutze designed all his homes without gutters and there is a hidden french drain and brick foundation that directs the water away from the house.

Interestingly enough we have furnished our home with French antiques. We have flowers and plants that compliment our furnishings. My wife who has the ultimate "green thumb" lovingly takes care of those and our wonderful cottage garden in the back.

Your pictures of our home are beautiful but now that the azaleas are blooming and spring has sprung it comes even more alive. It is a fun house to dress up for the Christmas holidays especially with snow on the ground.

Thank you for loving our home for we sure do!

Incidentally, this blog is read around the world. Our neighbor's adult daughter who lives in London happened upon this website just yesterday and knew it was our home, told her mother who informed us. Truly the internet has made the world a much smaller place.

Have a great weekend everyone! Don't forget about Buckhead In Bloom tonight and on Sunday.
