About This Old House

This condominium unit is one of six units in the original structure of Habersham Hall, which was completed in 1923 and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The building was built as the chapter house for the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. It was designed in 1921 by Pittsburgh architect Henry Hornbostel, who modeled it after the Bulloch-Habersham House (c.1819) in Savannah, Georgia, designed by William Jay. Hornbostel also designed the campus of Emory University and numerous public structures, 21 of which are also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The unit occupies one-half of the original ballroom of the chapter house, which is evidenced by a great room with a ceiling of over 20 feet and topped with an ornate chandelier. It retains many original architectural features, including the cast-iron railings detailed with the initials, “JHC” (representing the Joseph Habersham Chapter), which protect six large French doors that open out on the surrounding property and provide light on three sides of the great room and spectacular views of Midtown Atlanta. As part of the conversion of the building and subsequent renovations, a second story was inserted at the center and rear of the original structure to add a spacious master suite and dressing area and a modern kitchen and second bedroom and bath were integrated into the first floor of the original structure. Other amenities that have been added include high-end appliances, a new energy-efficient HVAC system, sound-proofing throughout, and built-in mahogany bookcases and cabinetry.

The building is adjacent to Piedmont Park, a 185-acre public park that is the center for outdoor recreation in Atlanta, and a few hundred yards from Winn Park, a neighborhood park maintained by Ansley Park Beautification Foundation. It is located in the Ansley Park

Historic District, a 337-acre, planned residential neighborhood located north of downtown Atlanta. Ansley Park is characterized by meandering streets that follow the natural topography. Completely platted by 1934, the neighborhood includes single-family houses, multi-family residential buildings, the First Church of Christ, Scientist (1913), the Ansley Park Golf Club (1912), and interconnected parks. The neighborhood has been designated a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.
