Chris Erickson and Kristin Tench Erickson, his wife, bought their Candler Park home in 2016. After three months of renovations, they had a home closer to their taste.
The porch was also renovated before the neighborhood's fall Tour of Homes. During this renovation, Chris Erickson removed the screen and added white furniture from Hayneedle.com. The exterior is painted Benjamin Moore Newburg Green.
2. New Decatur home, historic neighborhood style
Kate and Dave Breslin built their Decatur bungalow in 2015. The bungalow, however, was designed to blend in with the other homes in the historic district. Kate said she enjoys when people ask about their "renovation."
The construction included a brick porch and white columns. The same brick is used in the path leading to the house.
3. Renovated Candler Park bungalow for a family of four
Chris and Brian Fitzgerald bought a 1920 bungalow in Candler Park in 2007. They renovated it from a triplex to a family home. They told the AJC for their Private Quarters spotlight that they loved the location in their dream neighborhood.
Their home includes a large front porch using stone. The wall has the Candler Park sign.
4. A neo-classical Victorian in Grant Park
The porches (plural) on this 135-year-old Grant Park home were so striking that owners Philippe and Amanda Pellerin said they often drove by the house and fantasized about living there.
After five months of renovations, the house and its spectacular porches were ready. Their home includes two large, column-lined side porches with seating on each.
