Home Perfection for a Family or Empty Nesters

Peachtree Battle is such a lovely area. At one end of this beautiful tree-lined street is all the shopping you will ever need. On the other end, a park and places of worship. If you are looking for walkability, this area may be for you. The houses on this avenue sit among beautiful trees and delightful landscaping.  Here you will find an inspired Williamsburg home. Thanks to Rebie Benedict at Harry Norman in Buckhead, I had the pleasure of touring this home recently and wanted to share it’s appeal.

The symmetry of the house is reflected in the meticulous landscaping, the semi-circular drive, and the entryway, not to mention the home itself.  It sits on the highest point in order to give pleasant views in every direction.  I love the front entryway with the double set of steps inviting you to enter.
Inside you will find sunlight filtering into well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings. I love the balance of this foyer, the wainscoting, and that elegant front door.
To the right of the foyer is a cozy sitting room. The built-in cabinets on either side of that eyecatching fireplace make a wonderful focal point. This house has many windows, and I was charmed to see that every prospect was pleasing.

Across from the sitting room is a large dining room. The windows give this serene room wonderful light and beautiful views.  The house faces north, which is perfect for this floor plan. As the sun rises, the kitchen and dining room get morning sunlight, while the sitting room and master suite get evening light.

Behind the dining room is a very graceful living room. These three rooms flow easily into the kitchen and family room, making entertaining a dream.  

Speaking of entertaining, behind the living room is a beautifully landscaped garden to lend to the homes amazing views from every room. 
 
I love how the kitchen and family room combine to make a spacious casual area to relax and catch up with family at the end of the day. The family room has the third fireplace that you have seen, making for delightful gathering areas and focal points.
Still on the ground floor, the Master suite is extensive and serene with multiple closets and a well appointed bath.
Upstairs there are three more bedrooms with a bonus room on the top floor that is also en suite and could make a fifth bedroom.
This home, to me, makes for a very happy way to enjoy family life. The main floor has great gathering areas and the master suite. Upstairs is plenty of room for the children, either while they are growing up, or come home to visit with families of their own.
As I was leaving, I was struck again with the wonderful landscaping and lovely views all around this meticulously detailed home – from the front grounds to the upstairs view of the back garden.
