The Randolph Lucas House on Oct. 22.

The historic Randolph-Lucas House in Buckhead is expected to move to its new home in Ansley Park in the next two weeks, according to Buckhead Heritage Executive Director Erica Danylchak.
The mansion had a date with a demolition crew, but NewTown Partners’ founders, Christopher Jones and Roger Smith stepped in to save the day. The two agreed to move the home from its Peachtree Road address to the Ansley Park neighborhood by the end of the summer.
“The house mover is coordinating with GDOT and City of Atlanta on that,” Danylchak said in an email.
The 1924 home is currently located at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Lindbergh Drive, just north of Peachtree Battle Shopping Center. Noted Atlanta architect P. Thornton Marye designed the Georgian-Revival style home for Hollins Randolph, a great-great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson, based on Randolph’s ancestral home near Charlottesville, Va. Margaret Lucas owned the house until her death in 1987.
