This Dutch Colonial in Atlanta, Georgia has a lot going for it: it was renovated from the ground up in 2001, decorated by interior designer Mandy Culpepper, and sits on several beautifully landscaped acres in the heart of Chastain Park.
The house was featured in an issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and is on the market for $1.85 million.
Take a look!

This one is awesome.
I love the environment in and around it. I always get Ideas for our apartment from here since I’m a new bride and currently looking for nice and cute ideas for our apartment so every thing’s gonna look great when I’m done with it. so I come here often to see whats new?!
Thanks for the great work Julia.
Keep posting awesome photos 🙂
Yes, 65, the house has good bones for sure and the yard space is lovely.
Nice house for daydreaming on today as I listen to a gentle rain outside our window after two months of heat and no rain.
So many good conversational areas. I hope that house has lots of company to share its comfortable spaces!
The home is nice, I would do it differently, but that’s the fun of looking at houses! I LOVE the property. What an awesome and peaceful retreat it is! I checked out the listing and the taxes are so low, I couldn’t believe it for that size of property. It says 3 acres and the taxes were way less than I pay for 1/4 acre in nj!!!!!
thanks for sharing – I really look forward to these kinds of sneak peaks!
The bones of the house and the setting are wonderful. I love a number of the individual elements in the house, but they just do not seem to hang together for me. The round table and sideboard in the formal dining room, the color on the walls, the art above the fireplace and the rug in the living room, the floors in the entry and kitchen, the ottoman in the seating area, the storage/shelving in the great room and the orange benches are all great. I like that the house looks lived in and the pieces acquired over time so it doesn’t come across as over decorated. However, that animal print stair runner and all the casual rugs (sisal, berber, some of both?) just do not work with the rest of the decor.

Ooooh! I LOVE this house! Loving the cheetah stair runner! The only thing I’m not crazy about is the kitchen – it doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the house. 😉
Good bones and beautiful land, for sure, but something about the interior decorating just makes me skittish! If it were decorated differently, it would be a dream home!

I’m the same…love the house and surrounds but the decor is kind of insipid. The sudden splashes of colour and chunkier furniture in one or two room shows the potential if only the decorator had been a bit bolder…the house could take it !!

Hi, Julia ! I love the pallete of smooth colours spread trough this house… I wish I could live in Atlanta and have morning walks with my children in its garden! Thank you for posting this.

Loved those orange benches outside as well! I thought the leopard print carpet on the stairs is unexpected and brings a lot of interest into the foyer. Not every room was my cup of tea but really enjoyed the rustic, modern and traditional combo.

This property is indeed charming and beautiful although, overall it is not to my taste. However, there are some inspiring pieces I have seen. The orange benches were indeed a fine touch and I find the detached garage with the room above very much to my liking.
Finally a home with some color in it. I was beginning to think there was only one way to get into a magazine or blog. Paint everything white, use all white furniture, and put two punchy trendy color pillows on something.

Chastain Park is such a wonderful area! They have such a wonderful summer concert in the park series each year. Love the house itself, and I am sure they would take all their furnishings…perhaps they would like that carpet too? ha ha. I like the detached garage too! One day I want an outdoor fireplace, but I think all the burn bans we have here in Georgia would affect when you could use it.
Thanks for sharing!
