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.

July 25, 2010

It is just plain ole’ hot outside.  To chill out in this heat we asked Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International agents where they like to snack to cool off.

Leslie Ransom gave us the coolest response:    Yoforia–which offers frozen yogurt that is anything but ordinary; in fact, it is actually healthy, made from organic milk and nonfat organic yogurt.  A sampling of flavors include: Green Tea,Pomegranate, Blueberry, Dark Chocolate, Mango, Taro, Ferrero Rocher, Cookies and Cream and of course, Vanilla Bean.   With only 25 calories and 5 grams of sugar per 1 oz. serving, you are on for a treat that is not only satisfies the sweet tooth, and cools you off, but also is actually healthy!  Check out one of five metro Atlanta’s locations with Brookhaven being the latest Yoforia shop to open!

Atlanta dropped from No. 1 but remains a top 10 destination city, according to U-Haul International Inc.’s annual migration trend report for 2009.

The Big Peach ranked seventh after being ranked the top destination the year prior.

 
The No. 1 destination for relocating Americans is now Houston, followed by Las Vegas; Chicago; San Antonio, Texas; Orlando, Fla.; and Austin, Texas. After Atlanta are Sacramento, Calif.; Kansas City, Mo.; and Denver.

The moving company said its rankings show destinations for movers traveling more than 50 miles and includes every city regardless of size. However, the data is not stated as a percentage of population and is not reflective of overall growth, U-Haul said.

The report was compiled from more than 1 million U-Haul truck transactions last year.

Featured Home: Six Acre Estate overlooking the Chattahoochee

December 28, 2009

6690 Riverside Drive

6690 Riverside Drive is a sprawling home on six acres overlooking the Chattahoochee River. Built in 1967 and nicely renovated it is more than move-in ready.

Great room

All the rooms in this five bedroom, four and a half bath home are oversized. So much space and natural light to take advantage of here you will have room to grow. You will always welcome guests with this much space. Hardwood floors run throughout the majority of the house. The family room, breakfast area and kitchen are open and allow for easy conversation and wonderful outdoor views.

Master bedroom

The master suite is on main floor and has so much to offer the owner. A large bedroom with fireplace lends itself to a spacious seating area. There are his and her baths with features such as Jacuzzi tub and frameless glass shower. It doesn’t end there though, there are extensive built-ins within the suite and a spacious office with built-in cabinetry. It may be possible to never leave your suite.

Back Porch

The remaining bedrooms are upstairs and many are large enough to double as bonus, play rooms or a spectacular guest suite. With all this space the options are only limited by what you can dream up.
Situated on such an awe-inspiring piece of land, outside living is almost as important here as inside living. There is a front patio that allows a great view down the drive, but the gem here is found on the back of the home. A large stone patio under a vaulted roofline looks down towards the river overlook. The stone chimney from the inside fireplace easily divides the space. There is ample room for a conversation and dining area. The space lends itself to outdoor entertaining.
