From 2010 to 2013, Cherokee County added just under 10,000 new residents, making it one of the fastest growing regions in the Atlanta metro area. For many residents moving to the area, they choose to make their home at the family-friendly community of BridgeMill in Canton, which offers more than 52 acres of family recreation and convenience to everything you need. This community is also the location of one of the five homes in the 17th Annual Holiday Tour of Homes, which will be presented by The Junior Service League of Woodstock on Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10.
The beautifully finished Gwinn house is complete with warm, rustic touches that have it oozing southern hospitality both inside and out.
As with any true southern home, upon entering the Gwinn house, you are greeted by the inviting, well-appointed family room which flows effortlessly into the family-style dining room. The heart of the main floor, the two-story family room, displays an impressive amount of holiday spirit with a 13-foot Christmas tree. Completing this level is the room that every good hostess knows is important, the kitchen. From the kitchen, you will also have a stunning view of the outdoor stack stone fireplace which overlooks the home’s perfect spot for outdoor entertaining, the pool and patio.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are filled with things girls love including a vintage couture inspired dressing room. Mischievous elves have also left their mark by putting up a peppermint-themed tree in the teen girl’s room. Finally, after a long day of gracious southern hospitality, the master suite is the perfect retreat with a fireside sitting area and spa-like bathroom that features a shower worthy of envy.
As you make your way to the home’s terrace level, you’ll find another perfect spot to entertain friends and family. This level of the home boasts a guest suite, library and a gentleman’s den with a billiards room, wet bar, theater room and enough TVs to keep an eye on all of your favorite teams!
The Holiday Tour of Homes veteran design team at Interiors @ Fun Finds & Designs, lead by designer Laure Gill and designer-owner Betty Anderson, transformed the Gwinn house into a holiday wonderland fit for southern-style entertaining. Interiors is the full-service home styling division of Fun Finds & Designs, a local favorite known for its upscale furniture and home decor. Their new interiors store, located next to their original location, is chock-full of beautiful, unique decor items and is the home of their design studio.
