Feature Friday: Update on the Atlanta House Rebuilt

I shared several weeks ago about the home of Lynn and her family, which had burned to the ground over a year ago.  They have made great progress on the house, so Lynn asked  me to come back if I wanted to take some updates.  It has come a long way in those weeks and they are almost ready to move back in.  She still doesn’t have a lot of furniture and accessories yet, but all of that will come.

The home is beautiful, stately and gorgeous.  Come on along for a tour.

Here’s a reminder of the beautiful exterior of Lynn and family’s newly rebuilt home.  Gorgeous!


Love the double front door, with the lantern light fixture.  A mix of stone, shingles and brick is on the outside of the house.


They have a great contractor who has not spared the details on this home.


Stone stairs coming up to the front door.


Shutters on the porch area.


Coming in the front door, the stairs have been stained a deep brown to match the floors.


Front door and lantern in the foyer.


Upstairs is her boys’ rooms with a spot for relaxing for them at the top of the stairs.


Bathroom tile.


Downstairs, the dining room has beautiful woodwork and details on the ceiling.


I thought you’d love a look at all the millwork detail around the door, as well as the pretty chandelier.


Library with dark paneling.


This hidden door goes through to the master bedroom, a fun little feature.


Going into the kitchen is a butler’s pantry.


Kitchen cabinets are in with farmhouse sink and granite.


The whole kitchen.  Love the custom island, range hood and the backsplash.


Closeup of the island.


Island looking towards the greatroom.

Greatroom with fireplace.  It’s a big open space and I can’t wait to see it furnished.


Lynn saw my post about Rustick’s in Cashiers, NC, saw this light fixture and went up there and bought it when they put it on sale.  It’s gorgeous!


The spacious laundryroom.


Master bedroom.


Master bath.


Pretty pendants


Spacious double vanities in the master.


Sink with countertop.  Not sure what material this is, but I’m guessing marble.


Check out the fab soaking tub.


Details on the tilework.


The master shower.


Lynn’s office space is over the garage.


Powder room vanity and sink.


Downstairs will be a wine cellar and theater room.


Theater area.

So, that is the update on Lynn’s beautiful Atlanta home.  Even though most of us will never live in a home this large and stately, I love looking at all the details in upscale homes and what is being used in building today, don’t you?  I can appreciate all the beautiful details and love looking at floorplans no matter the price range.

Hope you enjoyed the update on Lynn’s home!

  1. What a huge,gorgeous home! In all that glory,my two favorite things are the beadboard on the porch ceiling (reminds me of home growing up) and the built-ins in the landing at the top of the stairs (maybe I could corral all my paperwork if I had such a space). Happy for them to be able to rebuild-such a traumatic experience they had to go through. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Such a beautiful home. So sorry that they had to go through losing their previous home but this is very beautiful. I’m happy for them. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to see all those beautiful rooms all “done up”.

  3. WOW! That is one lovely home. I hope she and her family have many years of enjoyment there.

  4. Wow! She has made some beautiful selections. It will be a show-stopper when it is furnished.

    After the tragedy of losing a home to a fire, I wish Lynn and her family the best life has to offer … starting with their new home! WOW! It is gorgeous.
    Your Friend,

  11. Oh that’s a beautiful house!! Love everything about it except…….too many steps. Is there a way for a handicapped person to access it? Other than that, just gorgeous!

  12. Andrea @ Big Creek Cottage says:

    What a lovely home. So happy for this family. If she is reading comments……I hope that she will comment on her kitchen faucet. I have been searching high and low for a new bridge faucet and LOVE hers…..would love to know her source or the brand.

  13. Her house is beautiful. My favorite part is the library with the secret foo! I love seeing other people’s houses to stimulate my creativity. I hope you do another post once it is finished.

  14. beautiful home, but what is with the wine cellar? I swear this country has more alcoholics…
