About 857 Oakdale, courtesy of tour organizers:

The Tudor facade of this Neel Reid house looks exactly as it did in 1918, when it was newly built for Druid Hills real estate executive Forrest Adair.

The interior of the home, however, has undergone two renovations, including one following a terrible fire in 2009.

A 25-month complete reconstruction by owners Evan Lindsay and Dr. Nancy Cox, who bought the home in 1989, has melded the best of the original design with many contemporary refinements, including a home theater and walk-in closets.

Memluk and Hereke rugs from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul lie on the custom-milled oak floors, a 1917 Steinway piano graces the living room, and a garden scultpure, pond, courtyard and fountain are visible from two tiers of balconies.

If you go: Druid Hills Tour of Homes; Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, April 22, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets for the tour can be purchased on the Druid Hills Tour of Homes website.
