Glenridge Hall

I have been driving by this Sandy Spring’s landmark  almost every day and thought this would make an interesting post for my readers.  Between Glenridge Drive and Glenlake Parkway sits the most romantic home in Sandy Springs – Glenridge Hall. Originally sitting on 400 acreas with stables, horse trails, gardens, and a working farm, Glenridge Hall was built in 1929 by one of Atlanta’s foremost businessman and socialite.   His name was TK Glenn and he helped found what is now known as Sun Trust Bank.  He also helped in the formation of Georgia Power.  His offspring are some of the most influential people in the Atlanta area.

This home took over a year to build with over 60 people working on it full time.  It is often said to be the most romantic home in the Atlanta area.  The home is frequently used in movies – REMEMBER THE TITANS, DRIVING MISS DAISY, and a host of lesser known films as well as TV shows.
