The home is filled with artwork and treasures from the 17th century onwards, and has a small goat farm in the back. Be sure to visit “Moose” the famous Superbowl goat!
Inman Park Tour of Homes
176 Elizabeth Street
Ron Martin & Michelle Nunn
Every aspect of this elegant 1908 American four-square offers a glimpse into Inman Park’s history. The wrap-around front porch provides a broad perspective of Elizabeth Street, affording views of the original homes planned by Inman Park founder Joel Hurt. The newly built back porch overlooks recently restored Springvale Park, designed by the Olmsted brothers and established in 1889. The large stained glass window halfway up the staircase was replaced in the 1940s when an inebriated party guest fell through the original. In 1972, former owner Ken Thompson designed the butterfly logo for Inman Park Restoration (now the Inman Park Neighborhood Association). The current owners have renovated the house extensively since they moved here in 2007. Filled with family antiques and personal political memorabilia, their home also displays beautiful folk art as well as international keepsakes from Michelle’s travels. Be sure to see the elaborate cactus woodcarving from Oaxaca, which serves as a lamp in the cozy library. The spacious rooms on three levels recall the structure’s history as a mid-century rooming house while also feeling bright and contemporary. For their new kitchen, Michelle and Ron wanted lots of light, so they had most of their storage built into drawers beneath the countertops, leaving plenty of room for windows.
