MARIETTA, Ga. - Nov. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- The pair searched at-length for a historic house in need of restoration for over two years with the help of Harry Norman, REALTOR® Carolyn Calloway, and eventually found the Randolph-Lucas house, designed by famed architect Thornton Marye. Upon discovering the Randolph-Lucas mansion, the team worked for a year alongside the owners of the Condo’s at 2500 Peachtree, the City of Atlanta, and the Buckhead Heritage Society to organize, plan, and obtain the numerous permits required before the historic landmark structure was able to begin its move down Atlanta’s most renowned boulevard – Peachtree Road. Despite the challenges throughout that year, the team never gave up on their dream of saving this Georgian Revival mansion and relocating it to Ansley Park, a neighborhood home to other Marye-designed structures
And in spite of the chilly temperatures, a few hundred curious and enthusiastic Atlantans lined Peachtree, watching the mansion tediously make its way towards its new home. The structure had been meticulously split into two halves between floors, with the pieces reaching their final home of 78 Peachtree Circle at 7:35 a.m. Saturday morning.
Even though the Randolph–Lucas mansion has reached its final destination, the project is four-to-six months away from completion for Jones and Smith. Jones, who holds a BFA in Historic Preservation from the Savannah College of Art & Design, and Smith are determined to restore the home back to its original 1924 appearance. The home was originally designed for Hollins Nicholas Randolph, a prominent Atlanta attorney, by the celebrated Marye, the architect for such Atlanta landmarks as the Fox Theatre, the demolished Beaux-Arts-influenced Atlanta Train Terminal, and religious institutions such as St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
“The Randolph-Lucas house captures a period of time when mansions lined Peachtree Street,” stated Jones. “It is our hope that by preserving this piece of Atlanta’s architectural and cultural history, that this project will be an inspiration to others interested in preserving significant pieces of Atlanta culture.”
The Randolph-Lucas house was designated a local landmark by the City of Atlanta and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
