Crook Residences in Atlanta

Lewis "Buck" Crook, my grandfather, and his partner Ernest "Ed" Ivey, designed close to 100 homes in and around the city of Atlanta, Georgia between 1923 and 1967.

What follows is an attempt at a virtual tour of those homes. Most of the images contained within these pages are clickable: a larger version of the picture should appear. Except for Crook's own residence, all of the homes are referenced by an Ivey & Crook job number.

This icon For Sale denotes a Crook-designed home that is currently for sale.

Since there are so many Crook-designed homes throughout northwest Atlanta, I've divided Buckhead into three geographic sections:
  • South This includes Brookwood Hills, Peachtree Heights and Haynes Manor.
  • Central The heart of Buckhead, from West Wesley on up to West Paces Ferry.
  • North Tuxedo Park, Brookhaven, and further.
This includes the neighborhoods around Piedmont Park: Ansley Park, Virginia Highland, Lenox Park, and Morningside.
