Frederick Trust: Six Homes In Historic Druid Hills Now For Sale, Including The Original Reimagined Mansion

In verdant Druid Hills, a reimagined historic mansion and new residences are now for sale in an enclave called Frederick Trust.

Frederick Trust is an exquisite property in Druid Hills that has been reimagined into a community of six residences, lined with peaceful footpaths and lush gardens.

Tucked into the canopy of Olmsted Linear Park at 1609 South Ponce de Leon Ave., Frederick Trust is named for the cherished landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted who planned the Hills Druid Hills neighborhood and adjoining linear park with his sons, in what would be one of his last commissions before his death.

“This is a rare and unique opportunity to own in historic Druid Hills.” said Pauline Miller, who is leading the sales team for Compass Development Marketing Group and has sold more than 18,000 homes totaling $4 billion in sales. “The homes at Frederick Trust are luxurious and maintenance free. And with the terraced formal and native gardens, it’s one of the most beautiful properties I’ve ever seen.”

The mansion is on the high point of the property overlooking Olmstead Linear Park. The refined residence now is two attached homes, with features such as sweeping staircases, historic millwork, stained glass windows, grand chandeliers, chef’s kitchens as well as historic and unique touches. A sweeping driveway through a portico creates the sense of arrival.

As the property flows to the back, four newly constructed detached homes were custom built by renowned local luxury builder Phillip Clark. Tall ceilings and exquisitely appointed interiors show that no detail was forgotten. The community is maintained through condominium ownership, so that all owners enjoy maintenance free exteriors and lawn care.

“Preserving the cultural and architectural history of not just this home but the historic property and neighborhood was our goal,” said Clark of Philip Clark Custom Builders, who has built more than 500 homes, in cooperation with civic associations, preservationists and neighborhood planning units.“The integrity of the mansion was maintained through an accurate and respectful restoration, ensuring its beauty, grandiosity and dignity for generations to come.”

All of the homes are for sale, starting at $1.5 million.
