In the heart of Atlanta's prestigious Druid Hills, the former home of the woman who inspired Driving Miss Daisy seeks $2.7 million.

Built in 1915, this French Provincial "masterpiece" was originally the property of Alfred and Clementine Montag. According to the property's listing, Driving Miss Daisy playwright Alfred Uhry has said the home once belonged to his beloved Aunt "Clemmie" and served as the play's inspiration and setting in his mind.

This 6,064-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom beauty boasts updated amenities without sacrificing any of its vintage charm. Set on 1.2 manicured acres, it has a carriage house as well as numerous outdoor spaces for entertaining.

The listing calls the main level "a master class in symmetry," and we struggle to disagree. The home's high ceilings, moldings, and abundance of light are all things that architect Neel Reid was famous for.
