Drive through Morningside and you will quickly fall in love with the old-growth tree-lined streets and eclectic mix of homes. The exclusive community dates back to the early 1900s and contains a diverse mix of upscale homes including bungalows, Tudors and ranches, such as a brick, four-bedroom, three-bath home that was recently listed for $635,000. The home has hardwood floors, a fireplace, a formal dining room, a back deck with a privacy trellis and a white kitchen with stainless steel appliances, an island and a staircase.
Jump on a bike on a Saturday morning and you can cycle over to the Morningside Farmers’ Market, which is one of Atlanta’s best-known farmers markets. It’s held year-round, dates back to 1995 and is located just outside the Rosebud restaurant and across the street from Alon’s Bakery. In addition to produce and flowers, you might find soaps from Hazelbrand Farm, bath salts and beads – as well as linguini, flat breads and pasta sauces from Zio Micu, which is an old-fashioned, certified-organic Italian farm.
An Earthcraft-certified, 2007 Southern Building Show showcase home is located in Morningside and has brick siding, two stories, a basement, a home-energy monitoring device, spray-foam insulation, hardwood flooring, a coffered ceiling, fireplaces and a tankless hot-water heater. Green-building consultant, Carl Seville, oversaw its construction and the demolition of the prior home, which was almost entirely recycled. The bricks were donated to a renovation three doors down and the windows went to a windowpane artist.
There are a myriad of artists in Atlanta who source materials from renovation projects – such as Francisco Joseph who exhibits up and down the East Coast - and local artist festivals, the Scott Antique Market in Jonesboro and the Lakewood 400 Antiques Market are good places to find them.
