“The first time I walked into this space, I knew right away,” Brazee recalls with a faraway look in his eyes. “The layout, all the things we could do. When you walk into a house, you know whether it’s your house or not. When I walked in here, I just knew.”
Brazee and Huff are partners in life and in business, running a successful real estate agency. So when the couple started exploring the old Kirkwood Library in east Atlanta, they saw past the commercial aspects of the 1942 building and the 1976 addition added to the back. They ignored the men’s and women’s restrooms, the exit signs, the 12-car parking lot.
Instead, they saw the bones of what would become their showcase house.
