Great P&H Build for Sale in Northwoods!

There is a great P&H home (the builders who built most houses in Northcrest) for sale in Doraville's Northwoods neighborhood.  Jeff has talked on his blog about the Northwoods neighborhood actively trying to get listed on the National Historic Preservation Registry.  Northwoods is a great neighborhood of ranch houses, one of the biggest and best examples of that type of building in the entire state, and Jeff and I lived there for a few years when we first moved to Atlanta.  Tucked in a corner of Buford Hwy. and Shallowford Rd., Northwoods is a great tree-lined neighborhood with parks and great neighbors. We loved living there, but we yearned for a more MCM style home, of which there were just a few in Northwoods.  None of those were for sale when we started actively seeking a house, and when we found Northcrest we fell in love.  It wasn't a very far move for us, only a couple of miles actually.  I still really like Northwoods, it is a great neighborhood and you can get in a good-sized, well built home for well under $200,000.

This house was actually right down the street from where we lived, and I passed it often.  Who knew we would actually end up buying an almost identical house in Northcrest?  This house has the same roof-line as ours and an extremely similar floorplan.  This one was built in 1958, right before P&H started their Northcrest project, as ours was builit in 1959 and served as a model home for a few years for that specific floorplan (which is why we have a one-car carport and no dishwasher!). 

This house is in great shape with the skylight, brick planter wall, and hood still intact!  It is such an amazing deal at $175,000!

  1. Nice! I hope a Mid-Century Modern enthusiast buys this home, because I would hate to see it fall.
