2016 Bungalow Home Tour

Thanks to the wisdom and foresight of our famous developers, William and Michael Hogg, and the Stude family led by Henry Stude, Norhill has benefited from green parks and esplanades, conveniently located schools and churches, and more than 90 years of protective deed restrictions.  The result is a rare and well preserved collection of bungalow style homes not found elsewhere.

Six outstanding examples of bungalow home architecture will be on display during the third biennial Norhill Bungalow Home Tour – Saturday, October 15 from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Scroll down the page to preview the homes and learn more about how to reserve your ticket today!

– Featured Homes –

The Tucker Home, 1132 W. Temple Street

– The Tucker Home –

1132 W. Temple Street

Built in 1929, this pretty red brick bungalow has been lovingly renovated several times over the years. While adding a spacious master suite in 2010, striking new floors of reclaimed tiger oak were laid. This home has curb appeal.

The White Home, 713 W. Temple Street

– The White Home –

713 W. Temple Street

With its original slate roof, nearly 90 years old, the White house’s inviting porch is framed by two brick columns and a decorative gable. Interior remodeling has created efficient storage, and new backyard landscaping includes a fountain, raised deck and organic vegetable garden.


– The Boatner Home –

1040 Key Street

Originally a parsonage for Berean Baptist Church in the 1940’s, this Key Street property was recently extensively remodeled to create a charming family home, complete with garage workshop. The new master bathroom and walk-in closet are an enviable add.


– The Olmsted Home –

828 W. Cottage Street

With an original sales tag of $880, in 1929, this compact American Craftsman-style bungalow, is worth considerably more these days, set in the heart of the Norhill neighborhood. Enhancing outdoor living, is the professionally designed backyard deck and landscape.

The Waller Home. 4027 Oak Ridge Street

– The Waller Home –

4027 Oak Ridge Street

This home is full of style. The exposed shiplap in the living room and bathroom add character and interest, and the original 1930’s wallpaper, claw foot tub and chandelier create a vintage flair. The fireplace mantle came all the way from an old home in Braselton, GA.


– The Prescott Home –

9015 W. Cottage Street

Framed by oak trees and lush landscaping, this tidy bungalow, built in 1928, is a house with good bones. Neatly adapted for twenty-first century living, the property’s new utilities, air conditioner and logical floorplan provide the framework for minimal maintenance and maximum living.
