Built in 1896
Stonehurst has sat atop its stately perch in Midtown's famed Garden District since 1896, maintaining its place as one of the most architecturally significant and well-preserved homes in Atlanta. Originally built by the beloved Hinman family, Stonehurst stayed in their possession for 100 years. In 2007, visionary new owners lovingly embarked upon a dramatic 17-month renovation in partnership with some of the most renowned experts in design and preservation. Fully reimagined with forward-thinking elements and bespoke finishes, Stonehurst's period detailing was meticulously preserved while elevating the landmark property to the highest level of design standards both technologically and ecologically.
Encompassing an awe-inspiring .64 acres (Midtown's largest residential plot) Stonehurst's three detached buildings are seamlessly connected by impeccably manicured lawns and highly curated specimen gardens. Trained in England as an interior and garden designer, the owner's distinctive aesthetic is evident from the outside in. Steeped in history and rich in detailing, original features abound including hard-carved millwork, original heart-of-pine floors, ornate fireplaces among an impressive cadre of other fine finishes. The dichotomy of old and new is ever-present as eco-sensitive design elements abound from the greywater system recycling water to use for subterranean irrigation to 10 inconspicuous solar panels on the roof (the largest installation of its kind in 2017, and visible only from a side street).
You are greeted by gracious flagstone steps and meandering pathways and are warmly welcomed home by the massive front rocking porch overlooking one of the most spectacular skyline views Midtown has to offer. Upon entering you are drawn inside by the rich detailing of the Grand Foyer, anchored by an original fireplace with some of the finest brick masonry known. Just off the Foyer the Music Room serves as the heart of the home with its massive original, restored leaded glass windows overlooking Midtown and the Corinthian-capped columns framing a hand-carved inglenook fireplace. Across the Grand Foyer is the Formal Dining Room replete with its own original glazed-tile fireplace, built-in buffet flanked by original china cabinetry and a hand-blown glass chandelier. Stonehurst affords plenty of places to retreat and relax whether it is sitting outside with a cup of coffee on the idyllic rear screened porch overlooking the event lawn or upstairs with your favorite book in the Sleeping Porch.
Stonehurst boasts eight elegantly appointed en-suite bedrooms ranging from the massive 760-square-foot Owners Suite upstairs with private office and sitting area to the dramatic two-story Fowler Suite in the Carriage House, epitomizing grandeur with an impressive upstairs bath that leaves little to be desired. Luxury is truly in the details as each en-suite has its own impeccably renovated bathroom adorned with the finest finishes including heated Carrara marble floors, stone slab showers, designer lighting and thoughtful details like heated towel racks. Three of the baths have jetted soaking tubs for the ultimate R&R. The home provides a multitude of options with 3 bedrooms downstairs and 3 upstairs, with another 2 bedrooms in the Carriage House. An additional guest cottage onsite with its own kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room rounds out the accommodations.
What makes Stonehurst truly special is its unparalleled location just one-block from Piedmont Park. Cultural attractions like the High Museum of Art, Atlanta Botanical Garden and Fox Theater are all a leisurely stroll away. For more exciting adventures you have easy access to the all-new Colony Square and Atlanta BeltLine. The home is currently operated as an award-winning Bed & Breakfast, with business assets available to purchase separately if so desired.
The legend of Stonehurst will soon live on with its next owners. Be a part of Atlanta history!
