Sustainability, locally sourced materials, and environmental consciousness have been an increasingly important focus in our day-to-day lives and an important consideration for homeowners that opt to build a custom home. From repurposed brick to refinished antique doors, architectural salvage and the use of eco-friendly materials have become a hot trend in today’s luxury homes. Not only are buyers looking for energy-saving, eco-friendly, and ethically sourced features in their next home purchase, but they expect these elements to be blended and integrated seamlessly into the architecture and design.
To reduce the impact on the environment, locally sourced construction materials such as reclaimed lumber and repurposed stone are salvaged from deconstructed buildings and recycled to be given new life in construction and remodeling projects. As demand for these environmentally friendly products rises, they are becoming more affordable and progressively being implemented into new developments. The continuous innovation of these materials encourages luxury homeowners to seek the latest trends in sustainability and responsible consumerism.
This newly listed 7-bedroom home situated on 1.4 acres of land in Milton is a shining example of a remodeled home making use of locally sourced and reclaimed materials in an integrated, aesthetic way. Boasting beautiful designer finishes throughout, this Milton estate’s custom, white-oak hardwood floors are made entirely from locally sourced materials from a South Georgia mill, which gives it an added touch of warmth and personality.
Located just off the gourmet chef’s kitchen which features granite countertops, an oversized island, stainless steel appliances, and upgraded cabinets, the family room flaunts vaulted and beamed ceilings along with 150lb wooden shelves that are sourced from Army barracks. The great room’s coffered ceilings and bowed wall of windows invites in plenty of natural light, making for a luxurious space to entertain with its grand, floor-to-ceiling fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and elegant chandelier.
The fully finished walk out basement features an open concept living and game room, a kitchenette, and opens to the beautifully landscaped and leveled backyard that is complete with mature fruit trees and an expansive garden that is set up perfectly for homesteading.
