From major rehab to cosmetic fixes, these are the homes that need work. What you see in the photos may be worse or not as bad as shown so always hire a home inspector before buying.
Built for the founder of the Four Roses Distillery, the Rufus M. Rose House is one of only four "Victorian" mansions left along Peachtree Street and the only one left in the central business district. A splendidly intact example of late Victorian architecture, the Rose House is an extremely rare example of a nineteenth-century town house of the affluent. Its beautifully carved front steps rise directly from the busy sidewalk in the fashion of pre-automobile Atlanta, and its tiny yard, shaded by a large elm that is original to the site, are a singular survivor from Peachtree's residential heyday.
