Originally a single-story modern home built in 1959, this contemporary home was remodeled to include a second-story addition. Stone, taupe synthetic wood siding and stucco were used for the home exterior, while a deck and luxurious pool area were added to create a stunning backyard area.
After: An Atlanta home has been expanded and transformed with a new shake roof, new paint on the brick, new shutters and a more spacious front porch. To get a fresh start on the lawn, they removed some of the existing landscaping.
This home renovation included the addition of am enclosed sunroom with large glass windows that show off the home's stunning interior spaces. A small outdoor deck features a wooden table and chairs set that provides the perfect spot for casual dining.
Previously, the owners of this elegant home had a 4,000 square foot house with four bedrooms with two separate single car garages. However, when they bought the lot adjacent to their home, they wanted to expand with a complementary space that included a new, two car garage, an indoor/outdoor cabana with full kitchen and bar, a mother-in-law suite, an elevator, a wine room, an exterior fireplace, a large patio and a unique pool.
In this Tudor kitchen, designers aded aspects that would modernize the space, while make sure the new design kept true to the integrity of the historic Tudor home. The walls are painted a light yellow color that makes the space bright, while the white cabinets and black soapstone countertops help to create a unique contrast. The upper cabinets are glass paneled, creating a more modern display case, while the lower cabinets are updated and have plenty of room for storage. Wood panels cover the kitchen's major appliances to help them seamlessly blend in with the design and create a sophisticated space full of all the modern comforts with plenty of traditional charm.
The designers installed a commercial garage door, metal siding and all new exterior lighting on this modern home addition. The structure features a shed roof and sleek, narrow profile that's suited to its narrow lot.
The texture and unruliness of the twig vines growing on columns beside this patio walkway are a curious sight, yet they work almost as works of art against the austere cement and limestone structure of the home. Their addition brings a simple, natural element to the home. Design by Andrea Michaelson.
The bedroom continues the home’s minimalist, earthy aesthetic, which Amy calls, “Spa Retreat.” The emphasis in this room is on linens and sheets that add a bit of blue to the sea of neutrals that define the home. The addition of shades of blue creates a more beach-centered look in the bedroom.
If you have an unfinished underdeck you might consider this inviting and practical solution that creates a dining/relaxation area. It not only offers protection from the sun but is well lighted for evening activities.
