ATLANTA -- Another stumbling block for the people trying to save an historic Buckhead mansion from demolition. 

The condo association will not agree to an inspection by architects and builders proposed by Buckhead Heritage, according to Wright Mitchell, president and founder.

The inspection is needed so potential owners will know how much it will cost to update the house. Buckhead Heritage is leading the way to save the house, which is  free to whomever can afford to move it for 350 thousand dollars. 

 Mitchell says several interested parties have come forward since 11 Alive first aired this story. Mitchell says attorneys for the  condo association have said the group may allow inspections after it has a demolition permit, but preservationists worry by that time, it will be too late for the house. 

11 Alive has repeatedly reached out to the condo association and its attorneys. Calls have not been returned.  

The Randolph Lucas house was built in 1924 for Thomas Jefferson's great great grandson.
