That New Old House in Atlanta
Doesn't look it, does it?
The proportions are just right on this new house.
I thought it was old when I first came upon the listing.
The outside certainly looks vintage.
The only giveaway is that the garage is down and under.
I love the mix of brick and white columns on the porch.
The backside with several levels of decks going down to a sloping yard.
I'm going to be honest here. I HAD to go out of my region to get a nice house to show today.
I, first try to stay in my city, Oklahoma City when I show houses on Sundays but sometimes
I go to Tulsa or Dallas.
But let me tell you...it's hard to find houses locally with nicely decorated interiors.
So many are early country & western / tuscan, here.
They have big gloomy overly ornate furniture in browns and dark reds and greens.
Of course that is not my aesthetic and I don't like showing that here.
I searched and searched for a nice house to show and finally threw up my hands and said....
"I must go to Atlanta. Atlanta always has nice houses". Within minutes I'd found several good ones.
So today's house is from the Morningside neighborhood in Atlanta.
When you think of Morningside you usually think of historic homes but this one's new.
But it looks historic and though it has an open floor plan inside, it does have a vintage vibe.
Such as the coffer ceiling above and the pretty traditional fireplace.
Very nice kitchen with a vintage feel. Of course I like the countertops.
I don't know if they are marble or a quartz but they are very pretty.
Love that narrow fridge. Who says I fridge has to be the size of a Uhaul truck?
I think the size of that one would do most nicely.
It would do me!
Here we see how the kitchen is open to the living room.
Interesting dark subway tile. That is a very different look but it's still classic.
Love those light fixtures!
I like the Butler's Pantry even more!
Nice wainscoting in here. I'm not crazy about the brown paint....but that's an easy fix. The perfect porch complete with fireplace.
I'd want to be out here all the time.
Isn't this a fun room? I'm crazy for the group of three lights here.
Love the built ins with lights above the shelves too.
Very pretty bath. Love the gray cabinets and those mirrors.
Totally digging the vintage look vanity lights.
Big tub and shower
Restful bedroom done up in gray.
Another nice bath...this one smaller.
Oh...I'm all about that wallpaper and the mirror!
Another pretty bedroom.
and another....this house has great windows.
Looks old doesn't it? I could live in a new house if it was like this one.
