1215 Mt. Paren Road

Words that come to mind as you explore 1215 Mount Paran Road are elegant, glamorous, sophisticated and magnificent.  The home invokes a feeling of old Hollywood.  The estate is absolutely stunning and certainly pure luxury, but it is not overstated or showy.  It is simply dazzling.

The Georgian home is quietly chic from the outside with well-manicured lawn and hedges. The sumptuous green lawn provides a delightful contrast to the light exterior showing off the classic architecture.

Once inside, the curved wrought-iron railed staircase catches your eye in the double story foyer.  A staircase to the lower level curves in the opposite direction from the foyer, while a baby grand sits tucked into where the staircases meet in the custom painted space.

Kitchen

The gourmet kitchen created by Design Galleria is appointed for the finest chef.  Two islands, one with an Afromesia wood top, sit between walls of antiqued Downsview cabinetry.  A professional quality cooktop with custom stainless, limestone hood and limestone and steel backsplash sits at the far end.  Stainless steel double ovens flank the desk area on the right-hand side of the room.  Flanking the kitchen are the large eat in area and the large open family room with a beamed ceiling and fireplace that overlook the formal gardens, pool and covered patio areas.

Living Room

750 Wildwood Road NE

750 Wildwood Road NE

A perfect house, a perfect street and a perfect neighborhood!  What else could you ask for, maybe for it to be completely renovated and move-in ready?  Well, that has been taken care of!  The 1945 Morningside home has been renovated so well it was featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. 

The home may appear small from the outside, but you will certainly see otherwise when you step through the charming green front door.  The colors throughout are soothing and gently move you from room-to-room.  The renovation and design is a well-blended mix of classic and contemporary elements. The home can be utilized as a four bedroom home or as a three bedroom with a den.  

Formal Living Room

Formal Living Room

The main level has a large living room, kitchen with separate dining area, two bedrooms and a sunroom that makes a great home office.  The living room has enough space for plenty of seating and the baby grand that the current owners have in the space. There are two bedrooms on the main level and two on the second level.  All the bedrooms are spacious with the master bedroom being somewhat larger with a private bath. 

Kitchen

Kitchen

The kitchen is a work of art and is an Award-Winning design by Design Galleria.  Clean lines, glass front cabinetry and stainless steel appliances along side large picture windows open the space and captivate.  The kitchen has abundant storage and a built-in bar or beverage station.  There is an eat-at bar that will make cooking and visiting with guests something you will more than look forward to. 

Family Room

Family Room

Frameless showers were utilized in the bathrooms, allowing the custom tile work to take center stage without cumbersome frames to draw the eye away.  Sinks and counters follow the lead of the kitchen design and stay pure to the mixture of classic and contemporary ideals.   The master bath also has a jetted tub that sits in a private alcove.  

The backyard has a large brick patio.  Your imagination can run wild here with all the possible uses for the space.  Additionally, there is off street parking for multiple cars in back.  

What an amazing home.  It is a must see if you are looking in the Morningside area.
