Atlanta Magazine has written an excellent piece on one of the oldest homes in Ansley Park, which just so happens to be listed by Dorsey Alston Realtor Jason Cook.
“One of Ansley Park’s most charming houses is also home to one of Atlanta’s most influential couples, Veronica and Franklin Biggins. Veronica, who worked at the White House as director of presidential personnel under former President Bill Clinton, is now the managing partner of the Atlanta office of Diversified Search, the world’s largest female-owned executive search firm. Franklin is an attorney and former Fulton County judge. The couple have lived in the house at 138 Peachtree Circle for nearly 25 years, raising two daughters and hosting some of the city’s most prominent citizens.
Built in 1905, the Biggins’ home is one of the oldest in Ansley Park, which has been designated a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The first Atlanta suburban neighborhood designed for automobiles, Ansley Park is known for its wide streets, extensive landscaping, and variety of classic home styles, including Colonial, Italian Renaissance, and Tudor. The popular neighborhood is also known for its prime Midtown location, within walking distance of the Atlanta BeltLine, MARTA, the High Museum of Art, and Piedmont Park.”
