Description

Perched atop a distinctive tree-lined drive connecting Morningside to Druid Hills sits La Casa del Rey, an architecturally significant Mediterranean Revival-styled home designed by noted architect Henry H Jordan. Originally built in 1925, old-world charm meets modern amenities as this home has been fully reimagined in a masterful to-the-studs renovation. Casa del Rey's remaining period detailing was meticulously preserved while elevating the landmark property with forward-thinking elements and bespoke finishes.
Master planned by developer James Turner, Villa Drive drew its inspiration from the coastal European towns he visited. Turner envisioned this enclave of 6 Mediterranean homes, each with a different blend of Spanish and Italian influences but all perched high up on a rise with huge sweeping front lawns sloping down to the winding street and namesake Villa Park. When you drive down Villa Drive it feels different from any other street in the city and this is why!
Casa del Rey boasts an all-new terra cotta barrel tile roof reviving the home's original design. All new Pella windows and doors are complimented by a cadre of massive reclaimed mission-style cedar windows and doors hand-crafted in San Diego and shipped to Atlanta specifically for Casa del Rey. Have complete piece of mind knowing that almost everything is new.

A series of terraces have been carefully preserved and lead up to an iconic Spanish-styled arch and into an idyllic courtyard. The front facade was returned to original form adding back on a front porch and steps leading up to a massive hand-carved front door (even equipped with speakeasy windows).
Upon entry the Foyer flows into a Keeping Room directly off the formal Dining Room. Massive windows flood the Dining Room with light all day long. An idyllic dutch door continues the character of the home and leads outside to the newly constructed detached 2-car garage. New white oak hardwoods seamlessly connect the main level's living spaces.
The Kitchen is a culinary enthusiast's dream, featuring Big Chill classic appliances that combine vintage flair with modern functionality. The centerpiece is a breathtaking marble waterfall island, complemented by top-tier finishes and a walk-in pantry.
The massive Great Room affords maximum flexibility with opportunities for additional casual dining and living options. Striking exposed cedar beams and custom arched windows are a nod to the past while a new arched door with operable side lights leads to a picturesque covered lanai with outdoor wood-burning fireplace.
Back inside, the Owner's Retreat occupies the other wing of the main level and truly redefines luxury living. Greeted by a private vestibule you step down into the dramatic vaulted bedroom space graciously adorned with its original arched plastered ceiling. The authentic mantle has been carefully reclaimed and anchors the room on one side with a massive set of arched original French doors opening to a Juliet balcony on the other. Previously this was a Music Room and rumor has it that at one of many dinner parties hosted in this home Liberace played the piano here. An en-suite den offers a private sanctuary for work or relaxation. Ascend up the steps and into the dressing room that even has its own entrance from outside. The owner's bath is a spa-like oasis with a dual vanity and floor-to-ceiling marble in the shower. A double rain shower head and body jets provide a truly indulgent experience, complemented by a 2-person soaking tub.
This home is a testament to impeccable design, showcasing a seamless blend of contemporary luxury and timeless charm. There are multiple outdoor areas ideal for al fresco entertaining. Upstairs you will find 4 additional bedrooms, 3 fully renovated baths and an upstairs family room with outdoor deck and laundry room.
Embrace the opportunity to own a piece of architectural history in the heart of Morningside, close to all that intown living has to offer.
