This little MCM on Juniper Street in Midtown made me think about possibilities.  I’d spruce it up, have my interior design business on the main level, and add a couple of stories for a personal residence.  One can dream, right?

For more than five years, Elston Collins has been a member of the St. Mark United Methodist Church at the corner of Fifth and Peachtree streets.
