About the Showhouse
Designed by Harrison Design and built by Sheehan Built Homes, the house evokes a stately English country home, situated on a private two-acre lot carved out of the wooded North Atlanta hills. The 5-bedroom, 8,800-square-foot structure integrates ordered classical design with a more modern, casual space.
With the modern family in mind, the expansive residence features a classic formal symmetry in its floorplan, breaking into a more relaxed and open living space towards the home’s rear—a perfect marriage of classical design and modern practicality. The entry foyer greets one with an intimately scaled space and leads the visitor into a dramatic rotunda with sweeping curved stair lit from the oculus above. A center gallery serves as the circulation spine of the home, bounded on either end by daylight-flooded staircases for family use.
In keeping with the grand scale of the home, 12-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows on the main level allow daylight to penetrate deep within the home, creating a light-filled interior. A wall of sliding glass doors connects the keeping room with a large covered porch. A continuous vaulted ceiling further blurs the transition from the inside to the outside creating a seamless entertaining space that overlooks the expanse of the property.
The home features custom made brick and locally sourced aged granite for its exterior.
