Glenridge Hall

The last home on the Garden Tour that I'll post about is Glenridge Hall.
This 45 acre estate is in Sandy Springs.
The website is  Take a look it's wonderful.  I never knew it was there.

The estate is so big I have to focus this post on small details.

There's a "dog" theme that runs through the grounds.  The owner's dogs also run through the grounds even during the garden tour.  They got plenty of loving attention from the "tour-ists."

Chinese "Foo Dogs" guard one of the many entrances to the home.

Leaded glass doors and windows are used exclusively.
I was admiring the doors in the side veranda, paying no attention to the two men sitting in the wicker when one commented that the leading is cast with a vine design.  It's incredible.
That man was the owner/occupant.
This picture doesn't capture the detail.

Steve and I were looking for ideas for a terrace.  Boy did we get plenty!
Here's a small side terrace.  Small for this estate that is.  It would be just about right for me.

Notice the leaded glass doors and windows.
I loved this wrought iron set.

The last feature I'll leave you is the porch.
This ceiling is the very best!
I think this could be copied.

Do go to the website and read about the history of this Atlanta Mansion.
