The colonial style home is located in a historic suburb of Atlanta on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. In an effort for the new home to fit into a neighborhood full of older homes, the house was conceptualized in phases. The symmetrical main body is comprised of painted brick with a formal front porch, a welcoming front door, and triple hung windows. The secondary wings give an appearance of additions to the house with slightly asymmetrical lines, lap siding and double hung windows. The three car garage is obscured from the street and tucked behind the main house. The foyer provides a grand staircase reminiscent of colonial homes and leads to the living areas. The formal dining room, office and butler’s pantry face the front of the home, while the more casual day to day living spaces face the back of the home. A large rear porch gives way to a pool and family friendly back yard while a path leads you to the bank of the river. The home fits the historic surrounding environs, yet provides a modern day lifestyle for a large family.
