I can't believe it is already May! May is one of my favorite months in Atlanta, and one of the highlights of the month is the the Peachtree Battle Friends House & Garden Tour, which always takes place on the first Tuesday in May. Some of the most beautiful houses I have seen through the years have been on this wonderful tour - I highly recommend it. This year's tour is Tuesday, May 4 from 10 am - 2 pm, and proceeds benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
The Peachtree Battle area of Atlanta is truly one of the most beautiful residential areas in the city. The area encompasses three historic Buckhead neighborhoods, and many of the homes were designed in the 1920s-1940s. The Peachtree Battle area is known for its gracious but well scaled lots, and beautiful architecture that represents a wide range of classic but eclectic styles that sit at ease in the neighborhood because of their well thought out scale, proportion, and design. This area of Atlanta is one of my favorite places to walk my dog, as the architecture and landscaping provide great inspiration for me.
Four homes are on the tour this year.

Come back and check this post later, I am going to try to update it with exterior pictures of the other homes. In the meantime, if you are in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend this tour of homes. It is an amazing tour, and benefits such an outstanding cause.
