Free Historic Buckhead Mansion

The Randolph Lucas House on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, GA has had a lot of attention in the past months.  The historic residence was built in 1924 for Thomas Jefferson’s great great grandson, and it’s remained empty for the last 25 years.  It was moved to its current spot 14 years ago when the condominiums were built and the developer agreed to save it.  The home is now being offered for free to anybody willing to move it to a new location.  Wright Mitchell, the president of Buckhead Heritage spoke to NBC11Alive, “Thanks to 11 Alive the interest has been overwhelming,” he said. “We’ve been contacted by realtors who have clients with vacant lots who are interested in moving the house. We’ve been contacted by developers who are interested in moving the house and rehabilitating it.”  NBC11Alive notes that many interested people are wanting to see inside, they want to know how much it will cost to fix & upgrade it.  The condo association has denied requests to get in.  Hercules House Movers has estimated the cost of moving the house to somewhere else in Atlanta, at $350,000.
