Home: Spacious Renovation in Brookwood Hills (Ransom Team)

August 26, 2010
324 Camden Road

324 Camden Road

Standing on the sidewalk in front of this charming Brookwood Hills home you will think you are about to step foot into the perfect little cottage.  324 Camden Road is perfect, but it is certainly not little.  Spacious and diligently renovated you will be speechless when you discover all the wonders of the 1964 home.

Step through the red front door and you will immediately realize the home is much bigger than it appeared.  To your left is a formal dining room and to your right a front living room with built-in bookshelves and a fireplace.  The room has two floor-to-ceiling windows on each end.  You can enjoy the openness the windows create as the natural light falls into the room.

Family Room

Family Room

A back room that was most likely originally paneled in dark wood has been painted white with charming contrasting trim.  The room has built-in shelving and a new custom built wet bar.  The addition of the bar will make having an impromptu party a breeze.  Everything you need is right here in one place.  The current owners also use this space as a place to relax and watch TV. 

Kitchen

Kitchen

It is also easy to tell the person that remodeled this house likes to cook and entertain.  The kitchen is not only highly functional, it is extremely appealing.  Dark stained cabinets, granite countertops, tumbled tile up the walls and a lead glass window will tantalize your senses.  Viking appliances, including a double range with double ovens, might make you think you are in a top chef’s kitchen.  A separate beverage refrigerator will help make ample room for all of your masterpieces in your Sub-Zero refrigerator. This room may make a chef out of even the most challenged cook!

The master suite will accommodate a king size bed, dressers/chest of drawers and a sitting area.  The walk-in closet is tucked neatly into a corner on the way to the bath.  Separate sinks are encased in antiqued cabinetry with multiple drawers and cabinets.  There is a separate shower with frameless glass doors and a whirlpool tub.

Backyard

The first floor provides easy access to a bluestone tile patio covered by a trellis.  A built-in gas grill and cooking station make outdoor entertaining just as easy as indoor entertaining.  Access to the remaining yard can be reached by a few stairs connected to the grilling and dining area.

It is truly remarkable what has been done with this property.  So much has been added without taking away from the beauty of the original structure.

St. Regis obtains new financing

July 29, 2010

From Atlanta Business Chronicle

 The developers of the St. Regis Atlanta have obtained new financing from blue chip investment bank Morgan Stanley, a rare sign of confidence in Atlanta’s commercial real estate market.

 The deal replaces $176.5 million in financing from Morgan Stanley Mortgage Capital Holdings. The loan was originated in October 2006 to develop the St. Regis Atlanta, the 16th hotel for the historic chain, which was founded by John Jacob Astor in New York City.

The debt that financed the construction of the St. Regis Atlanta would have come due in October, according to Databank Inc., a firm that tracks real estate transactions in Atlanta.

 The development team behind the St. Regis declined to discuss the Morgan Stanley deal, but partner Kent Levenson said the original debt secured by the 26-story building involved “extremely complex financial structures.”

 The new financing involves an undisclosed investment of new equity into the St. Regis, which includes 53 high-end homes and 151 hotel rooms overlooking West Paces Ferry Road, near the intersection with Peachtree Road.

 The deal was struck despite deep problems facing the country’s luxury residential and hotel sectors amid a slow recovery from the Great Recession.

 Developers have seen real estate prices collapse since the peak, putting their buildings under water. At the same time, much of that financing is coming due amid a much stricter lending climate, forcing borrowers to put significant equity into their projects to refinance, or risk seeing those properties go back to the banks.

Sovereign Featured in Lonny Magazine!

June 15, 2010
 When the Sovereign Buckhead decided it was time to revamp their model home they knew just who to call: designer Lee Kleinhelter.  As the owner of Atlanta’s home-goods store Pieces, as well as a resident owner at the Sovereign, she was eager to put her clever direction into making the condo model radiate  with clean lines and “not too modern and not too traditional” touches. 
 
Kleinhelter breathed new life into the condo by ripping out the dull-blue carpet and centered her attention on creating depth through textures, accentuating the walls, and energizing the space with a flavorful shade of orange inspired by Hermes.  Each Sovereign condo features strong angles and uniquel nooks and she was successful in making it look anything but an average staged model.  She created a home that fuses the modern and the vintage and together permeates the warmth that every buyer craves.  “I want this home to make you feel great, chic, and super happy” she says, and it seems by the response Sovereign is receiving, she has done just that.

Staging a house to sell isn’t always easy, but Kleinhelter gives these two bits of advice:

  • The first step in preparing to sell is to move everything out.  Once the house is clutter-free, paint everything the same color to visually expand the space. 
  • Lastly, when moving the furniture back, carefully edit and leave only the essentials.  Less is more.  Leave personal mementos in storage, otherwise potential buyers may feel like they are intruding on someone else’s space.

Sunday Sneak Peek: Best neighborhood farmer’s market

June 14, 2010

Welcome to our new weekly blog feature: Sunday Sneak Peek!   Each Sunday we will feature a “Best of Atlanta”-where will explore some well-known and lesser known gems that make our home in Atlanta such a fine city to live in!

When surveying the Atlanta Fine Homes team on the best neighborhood farmer’s market,   Margaret Rodbell, Mike Bugg, Sandra Carey and Jenny Pruitt all raved about the:

Peachtree Road Farmers Market at Cathedral of St. Phillips
2744 Peachtree Road, NW
Atlanta, Georgia 30305
April 10, 2010- December 18, 2010
April – August: 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Sept. – December: 9 am to 12:30 pm

With a vendor list eight pages long, you are sure to find something sweet, something organic, something fresh and something even for your furry friend here!  Plenty of parking!

Peggy Hibbert , a native Atlantean and agent in the Buckhead office,  had no problem identifying her favorite: “The farmer’s market in Virginia Highland/Morningside is FABULOUS!  It’s been going for a long time, so there are a lot of participants with great quality and diversity of choice.  Of course, the produce is amazing; there is also organic meat, flowers, handmade items, i.e., soap and bath salts, cooking classes, etc.  The restaurant adjacent to the market, Rosebud uses the produce in their menu and when you’re finished browsing the market, you can cross the street to Alon’s, the best French bakery in town and get a cinnamon twist and great coffee.   Just one more reason why people love living in VaHighland/Morningside.”

Adrian Smith loves to shop locally and enjoys the many options that Atlanta offers to buy organically.    She  highly recommends The Piedmont Park Green Market. “They always have live music playing, a wide variety of veggies, cheeses, meats, some dairy products and even doggie treats! There are tons of dogs around (all on leashes of course). They also have handmade jewelry and other custom crafts, all being local! There are even live cooking demonstrations, as well as coffee and delicious morning treats like danishes and such to munch on while you’re shopping. The farmer’s have mostly been the same ones selling there for years. It’s nice to feel like you have a relationship with the people who are growing your food. Then, you can take a walk through Piedmont Park once you’re done shopping. Who doesn’t love that? I don’t think you have to be certified organic to sell food at this market, which is nice because there are so many wonderful farmers that don’t have the money to go through the certification process, but practice growing everything naturally and most of them would be glad for you to come out to the farm and see for yourself.”
