Historic preservation is a passion of mine, and this circa 1919 Buckhead home designed by Neel Reid, one of Atlanta’s most renowned residential architects, truly speaks to my heart. The Charles Case House, also known as Eagle House, was modeled by Reid after the Tintinhull House in England. However, throughout the 20th century, the house was subjected to a series of modifications that were not always in keeping with Reid’s original aesthetic.
The current owners brought in Atlanta interior designer Liza Bryan, architect Keith Summerour, and contractor Jim Eiland of C&E Remodeling to ensure a historically accurate restoration. The house was remodeled with materials appropriate to the time of the original construction. Plaster walls, proper hardware, and carefully researched paint colors lend historic authenticity throughout the house.

Thanks to the commitment of both the homeowners and everyone involved in the restoration, the Eagle House will remain a treasure for generations to come. To read more, please visit Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
