This 1920’s home located in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood was divided as a duplex when the homeowners purchased it. They loved the house, neighborhood and its proximity to the Beltline Trail. The couple wanted to convert it back to a single family home with modern amenities while still maintaining its historic charm.
Like many homes built in this time period, the kitchen and family room were separated, which created two cramped, dark spaces. Walls were removed and space was taken from a back porch to create an open layout filled with natural light. The kitchen’s design includes lighting original to the home, custom inset cabinetry, aged bronze hardware, restoration of floors, and unique molding and trim details. A large island includes a farmhouse sink, dishwasher, additional storage space and plenty of room for eating and entertaining. The kitchen also features a butler’s pantry with additional prep area and a walk-in pantry.
On the 2nd floor, a dormer was added to the rear of the home to create a spacious master suite. The light-filled master bathroom features a tub inside the shower, which takes up less room than designing separate tub and showering areas. The shower features a combination of marble and ceramic subway tile and multiple shower heads and body jets. The furniture style custom vanity with double inset sinks and a quartz countertop provides ample storage.
