A magnificent work of art situated on one of the Historic Landmark District’s most prestigious corridors, this historic home, c1852 marries modernity and antiquity. An extensive four-year restoration began in 2005 resulting in a brilliant masterpiece that was the recipient of The American Institute of Architects AIA Honor Award. One of the home’s most appealing features is the thoughtful attention to incorporating natural light throughout.
On the Parlor level, the union of old and new as well as the light, airy sense of space provide a well-designed living and dining space. A luxury, gourmet kitchen features all stainless built-in appliances and custom cabinetry. Designed with entertaining in mind, the kitchen is spacious with three ovens and two sinks and vast counters.
The master suite, located on the third level, is a veritable sanctuary that includes a sitting area with views of the urban landscape. An exquisitely designed Italian marble bath opens to a private balcony overlooking the courtyard.
The lower level garden guest suite features original wrought-iron covered windows and a full bath opening to a balcony with views of famed Forsyth Park. A full size luxury kitchen and a media room provide supreme space for entertaining. The brick floors and fireplace speak to the home’s past perfectly uniting the old and new.
The home’s courtyard features pierced brick, three-quarter walls and chain metal curtains around the garage. A carriage house suite provides an inviting, light-filled respite for guests. Featured in Metropolitan Home Magazine, this home is a remarkable example of uniting a storied past with modern-day luxury.
