Savvy Atlanta homeowners want to know if a remodel of their existing home makes financial sense. That’s one reason we encourage potential clients to download the free 2019 Home Remodeling Cost Report.

Not only does this report give you an idea of what you can expect to spend on a project, but it also provides you with figures about what you can expect to recoup your investment. It's not just the project, however, that impacts your investment. Where you live makes a big difference as well. So what are the best Atlanta neighborhoods to invest in a remodel?

The Atlanta area has quite a number of charming neighborhoods with great existing homes that exude character. As design/build remodelers with a passion for remodeling and restoring older homes, we pay a lot of attention to strong, traditional design elements. We have a particular affinity for Craftsman and Victorian-era styles and have since had the pleasure of renovating several houses in Atlanta's historic neighborhoods. Frankly, part of our reason for existence is that we believe old houses are worth saving!

The good news is that there is an abundance of old homes in the greater Atlanta area that are in need of saving. That’s why we are actively involved in the following Atlanta neighborhoods.

Ansley Park Lake Claire
Atlanta Morningside
Avondale Estates North Druid Hills
Brookhaven Oakhurst
Buckhead Paces Ferry
Candler Park Sandy Springs
Chastain Park Smyrna
Decatur Tucker
Druid Hills Vinings
Dunwoody Virginia Highlands
Garden Hills
Winnona Park

Rather than just tell you where we work, we thought it might be helpful to see some specific examples of some of the work we’ve done in these neighborhoods.


Here’s a whole home remodeling project we completed in Decatur.

This was a true “inside-and-out” project. And although it was a major project that encompassed the whole house, you’ll be able to see the attention to detail in everything from windows to flooring to trim work that captures the character and spirit of this fine old home.

Lake Claire is another great neighborhood we’ve enjoyed working in. This award-winning remodeling project brought new life to a home with classic beauty. And while it’s all-new on the inside, the design respects and reflects the existing character of the house. Click here for a closer look at the details.


The update on this Virginia Highlands home is a perfect example of how we marry fresh new design with classic style. You can catch a glimpse of how the sleek, modern kitchen blends into the rest of the home (not the arched doorway from the kitchen to the dining room).

This beautiful Arts & Crafts home in Morningside gives you a whole different feel.

We helped the owner take advantage of a lot of the natural wood features in existence throughout the house.

The home retains its classic "lived-in" appeal while feeling fresh, updated, comfortable, and convenient.

Whether you currently own a home in one of these great Atlanta neighborhoods or are considering a property with plenty of potential—we can help you turn a good home with "great bones" into your dream home.
