The Lauritzen Home
Now retired, Becky Lauritzen spent much of her formative years running a design and antique shop in Villa Rica, Georgia. Her work would frequently take her to neighboring states to source items, and while she may have come to Chattanooga to find some unique furniture, she left with a new place to call home.
Upon coming across the historic 1925 Park Place School building, Becky and husband Paul immediately fell in love.
“We like old architecture, and we liked the fact that this building had been repurposed into housing,” explains Paul. But it wasn’t just the architecture that stole the couple’s hearts. The duo had been looking to downsize and was also in search of a home that was all on one level, and this property delivered.
