Continuing on with my post from yesterday, today we are going inside the model home at The Bellingrath. After taking a look in person, I have to tell you the town homes are quite stunning. Probably you might expect this, considering they are priced from $1,870,000 and roughly 7,000 square feet. (What will you do with all that space?) They are so large that you might forget you are living in a town home and have a neighbor close by. I’m pretty sure you can fit an entire apartment inside the main living level. But enough about the size, lets focus on quality because these buildings were constructed with the best materials and modern conveniences. Quite often, we see enormous homes constructed, but when you get right down to the nitty gritty, its all a facade. When a developer puts a slate roof on, you know he means business.
You can tell that a lot of care and consideration went into the design and construction. Speaking of which, Harrison Design Associates ® designed these beautiful town homes. I know you have heard of this firm before because they have designed a lot of gorgeous homes throughout Atlanta. They also have offices in cities like Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills and New York. So, when you are looking at the photos, take note of the millwork, the floors, the fireplace surrounds. It was all well though out and designed for perfection.
There is a lot to look at and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
In the photo above, you are standing in the breakfast room looking into the family room. The breakfast room can easily accomodate a much larger table.
Below: Finding your way around roughly 7,000 square feet on four levels. I have color coded each floor to make it easier for you to see the space. Below are the main and lower level plans. The master and fourth floor plans are down further.
