It's the best of both worlds: the new "old" home, with the charm of a structure that has stood for centuries and the efficiency and customizability of a home built especially for its family.
Jeff and Lisa Martin's home in Atlanta's Buckhead area is such a fabulous example of the new old home, built for maximum light, comfort and, most important for a family with three sons, functionality.
That functionality paired gorgeous design makes this the kind of house that any family would be proud to call home.
Designer Beth Webb, architect Peter Block, builders Shaba Derazi and Jim Meathe of Y.M. Derazi Custom Homes and landscape architect John Howard were the dream team that helped bring the Martin family's vision to life.
The fact that all of the major rooms in the house have windows on at least two sides is one of our favorite features. The light is so lovely!
Lime-washed oak floors and plaster walls add the lived-in feel of a home that has stood the test of time.
Webb's neutral but textured palette is warm, inviting and stunning -- even in the bathrooms!
Dream closet comes to mind...
Dining al fresco has never looked so good!
Outdoor living rooms are always some of our favorite rooms. This fabulous fireplace makes it perfect for year-round use.
What a beautiful place! What would you rather have: An old house or a new "old" home?
