Headline Homes: July 2018

411 Ellendale Ave.

Figure skater, sports hero and philanthropist Scott Hamilton and his wife Tracie bought a new home in Brentwood in July. Also, well-known home designer Edwin Keeble and prominent architectural firm Tuck-Hinton created some homes with hefty price tags that ended up on July’s list of Headline Homes.

None of this month’s homes sold for less than $2 million, which is becoming a trend in the high-dollar homes list. Is a million-dollar house even really that big of a deal anymore?
