1109 Colquitt Avenue Duplex
Carolyn Kaplan & Jon Sanford

Shortly after moving to Inman Park, owners Jon and Carolyn purchased the house next door to theirs. After their renovation, the duplex entry parlor retains many of its original features: the front door, diamond-paned windows, brass chandelier, and leaded-glass window in a staircase that leads to a furnished second-floor flat.

The flat is used for short-term rentals, often to members of Atlanta’s film industry. Natural light fills each room from the multitude of windows. The eclectic decor features paintings by Jon’s mother. The large master suite incorporates an old sleeping porch converted to a dressing room and master bath. The first-floor apartment boasts new bathrooms, an updated kitchen, and a bright sunroom opening up to a new rear deck.

Heart pine (upstairs) and oak (downstairs) hardwood floors gleam throughout the house. Many of the original fireplace tiles have been restored, as have steam radiators which stand as proud reminders of the home’s vintage, although they are no longer needed for heat. Jon’s interest in urban farming can be seen behind the house in the beautifully designed vegetable garden, which backs up to the gymnasium of the former Bass High School, now Bass Lofts Apartments.
