Winnona Park



We have a beautiful 4 bedroom 3 ½ bath modern farmhouse underway in the Winnona Park area of Decatur. This house is turning into a real showpiece. A stone’s throw away from Agnes Scott, it epitomizes the phrase “modern farmhouse.” With red weathered brick porch piers and highly sustainable standing seam metal roof—the exterior of the home is a sleeker interpretation of the classic farmhouse. Metal roofs like this are preferred by the US Environmental Protection Agency because they help to prevent solar heat gain thus making them “cooler.” They also provide a very unique aesthetic effect to the home’s exterior.

Inside are hardwood floors throughout, a spacious and open living space and 9’ ceilings. Shaker-style cabinets built from reclaimed wood rescued from another local historical home are a unique kitchen feature. Stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and an eat-in peninsula make the kitchen both functional and fashionable. The masterbath boasts an über-cool reclaimed clawfoot tub. Other desirable elements are a functional fireplace, oversized laundry room, generous closet spaces, mudroom, and a full basement for storage.

The home sits on a very large lot with a screened in back porch and fully fenced landscaped back yard. It’s truly an urban oasis—accessible to shopping and commercial areas yet set back generously from S. Candler Street thus preventing extraneous street noise. We are in the process of deciding between grey owl, harbor grey, campfire smoke or very light chromium for the exterior color. The choice could be yours if you’re interested in this very special property and want to arrange a pre-market preview by contacting Lewis & Redwine Realty at 404-897-1595.



When we first laid eyes on this property we thought “Great location with lots of potential.” This home was originally built in 1922 so it has all the charm of a classic American bungalow—wooden details, a generous porch, built in cabinetry—all of which needed either replacing or repairing. The location is ideal. Winnona Park is located on the cusp of Decatur, it’s a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Avondale Estates and Decatur Village. Hands down the in-town convenience and accessibility of Winnona Park is hard to beat.

Collectively my partner and I have been restoring and reviving early 20th century homes for over two decades. Much of our work has been in the historic neighborhoods of Kirkwood, Candler Park, and Oakhurst—so restoring homes of this exact nature has become our specialty. We’ve renovated our share of bungalows with limited kitchen and bedroom space which makes this particular property incredibly rare. Sitting on a double depth lot—this bungalow offers abundant breathing room inside and out with a sunny open floor plan, chef’s kitchen, oversized bedrooms and a 2-car detached garage set adroit the property’s forested green space.

We took our time with all the details—penny tiles in the bathrooms, hand-cut Cararra marble, gleaming dark wood floors, period-chandeliers, functional wooden lockers in the dressing room, bead board in unexpected places, custom farm doors for extra privacy. The list goes on. Let’s just say we’re especially proud of this quaintly elegant Winnona Park renovation and we’d love for you to see it. We are hosting an Open House for 223 South Columbia Drive on Sunday December 15th from 12-5pm. You’re invited. Or call Meghan Parham at 404-692-6875 for an immediate showing.
