One more post on Places People Live: I couldn’t pass up a chance to blog my favorite Atlanta homes tour — the Castleberry Hill Loft Tour.
It comes in October, and this year I timed two fall trips with a week at home between them just so I’d be here for the tour.
As we were leaving, we saw this group in the Gulch. We thought it might be a movie-site walking tour, or maybe a Walking Dead location tour. Lots of filming gets done in Atlanta these days.
We appreciate the Castleberry Hill tour because it’s different, more ‘personal’ than some of the other local homes tours, which lately have featured places staged for sale, or even newly built homes that have never been occupied and are open for viewing anyway (are you listening, Modern Atlanta Tour?).
Castleberry Hill is a little quirky, and fun; the neighborhood seems welcoming, with residents always willing to talk about the advantages of inclusivity. Plus, all residences are within walking distance, so we get a good feel for the area.
— For me, it encourages that vision of my “fantasy future loft” — what’s your fantasy future home?

Always a treat! Thank you for an amazing tour.
Thanks Joan – and, speaking of tours, I’m going to email you about more London possibilities
I love seeing how others live!
Me too – that’s why I like this tour so much, it’s real, not just places decorated for sale. It’s inspiring!
I remember loving your write-up about this last year! I love doing house tours, and this one seems just different enough to ratchet up the interest level even more. (I have to say the T-rex planter is a little weird for me … the plants growing out of his back … 🙂 )
I think it’s the bohemian factor of the loft tour that makes it attractive, don’t you? On the T-Rex planter, it must be something going around. The Botanical Garden here has huge topiary-like sculptures (mosaicultures?) — mermaid, phoenix, dragon, earth goddess, and more, all covered in tiny plants that make up the design, so they’re all like big planters. No Dinos though.
