Sandy Springs Estate Renovation

Neighborhood: Sandy Springs
Scope: Expansion and whole house renovation
New/Impacted Space: 11000 sf


This estate home on the Chattahoochee River in Sandy Springs was fully renovated. The project consisted of tearing down and rebuilding one wing of the house, and completely gutting and renovating the remaining space. The new wing now contains a master suite upstairs, and the family's beautiful kitchen and keeping room downstairs. Highlights of this space are the large center island with double-marble countertops, custom cherry cabinets and mouldings, and a limestone vent hood.

The entry foyer features a striking double staircase with custom fabricated iron stair rails by Andrew Crawford Ironworks. The wide plank black walnut flooring installed throughout the house was used in this room with marble tiles in a diagonal grid pattern. Three of the home's four interior fireplaces were retrofitted with marble surrounds imported from France.

Outside, the rear of the home also underwent a complete transformation. The new pool and integrated spa are surrounded by limestone decking and flanked by an elevated terrace and covered loggia, both with their own masonry fireplaces.

This home was featured in the May 2010 Kitchen Trends magazine.
