When we think of architecture, we tend to associate homes with specific styles rather than a design style that incorporates different stylistic elements. Design styles like Craftsman, Mediterranean, and Victorian all have distinct identifiers that were defined by both the areas and times that they rose to popularity. As has always been the case in architecture, the styles and characteristics of these homes were developed using local materials readily available and specifically planned to fit the needs of homebuyers in their time period.
With a variety of home materials more readily accessible and homebuyers becoming increasingly cognizant of the sync between home design and their lifestyles, we’re continuously seeing the beginning of innovative new home designs that blend characteristics from various eras and architectural styles.
One such style that began in the mid-1900s and has progressively transformed since is what is referred to as “transitional style” architecture, defined as homes combining multiple styles which create a cohesive feeling that facilitates modern living.
Transitional style homes serve as a mid-point between traditional and modern, bridging the gap between the two to create a more comfortable, warm aesthetic. Rather than one single look, this design style begins with historical elements and regional aesthetics, but veers toward sleeker expressions defined by today’s homebuyers’ modern lifestyles.
With homebuyer desires constantly evolving to fit the needs of their lifestyle, Atlanta has seen a massive rise in the popularity of transitional style homes. Nestled on a quiet street in the Northland Hills neighborhood of Sandy Springs, this 4-sided brick, custom-built home is an incredibly rare find in the area that embodies all the fundamental characteristics of a transitional style home.
The 6-bed, 6-bath home overlooks no detail with it’s open-concept floor plan and beautiful finishes which invite the outdoors in. Beyond its meticulously maintained landscaping, the home’s backyard consists of an expansive terrace area with a luxurious pool and spa, a built-in grill and firepit, and plenty of spacious seating areas and space for dining al fresco.
The interior of the home is equally extravagant, flaunting hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout. Outfitted with an oversized island, stone countertops, Wolf double wall ovens, a 48” Wolf cooktop and SubZero refrigerator, the completely remodeled kitchen is a chef’s dream. Additionally, the kitchen area opens to a charming keeping room with a captivating fireplace and vaulted cove ceiling and separate breakfast area, making it ideal for casual entertaining.
The stunning Owner’s Suite has its own office space, an expansive bath with a spa and dual vanities, and a massive walk-in closet with a wardrobe island. Upstairs you’ll also find 4 additional en-suite bedrooms each with their own walk-in closets and bathrooms.
