Atlanta, GA - Butterfly Homes

Anyone know the story behind Atlanta's mid-century butterfly homes? There's at least six of them (2 in Margaret Mitchell, 2 in Briarcliff Woods, 1 off Roswell Road, 1 in Toco Hills). They have 16" Georgia granite bricks and butterfly-and-half roofs. All have rear-entry carports, except one that (I guess) was remodeled for a front-entry garage.

Two are currently for sale, and another was sold this summer (we snagged the original sputnik lamp pre-estate sale...woot!).

$595,000
I actually saw this one during remodel a couple of years ago...was driving by and invited myself in...owner not home but the contractor showed me around.

$399,000
Very big home (5/3), limited yard. Basement damaged by flood last year. Main floor needs complete redo. Short sale under contract, but pending lender approval.

Rainier Falls - sold. List price was originally $699,000, but that was way above market for a home that needed extensive remodeling.

I know of at least 4 others - the home I live in was built by P&H Homes in 1964 (Northcrest). There's one in Embry Hills in white brick. One on Lavista Road outside the perimeter. One on Stonington Rd in Dunwoody - I'm sure there are many others.
