Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Ashton Woods Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Interior Merchandising – Attached Model ($700,000 to $799,999) for Arrington Place. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

This cutting-edge home with a bright, neutral color palette and elements of sophistication offers a great space for entertaining family and friends. Soft lines found throughout the home in furniture pieces are paired with streamlined built-ins and other architectural details and when combined with the metallic elements, they create the perfect blend of modern elegance. Upon entering the home, the mirrored wall behind the buffet in the dining room sets the stage for the open main level that is perfect for entertaining.

Modern elegance is seen again in the kitchen which showcases Timberlake New Haven painted linen cabinetry lining the wall with the island in a superior contrast of Lausanne maple-stained espresso cabinets and Expanse Calcutta countertops. The sleek design is carried through to the family room with the Mezzo 36-inch modern fireplace surrounded by the Expanse Calcutta and flanked by two floating Timberlake maple espresso. Two sets of French doors allow the home to extend to the outdoors with wonderful views.

The master bedroom is a quiet retreat with white-trimmed walls, white bedding and metallic again throughout. The bedroom opens into a master bath that showcases a Kohler tub, large walk in shower, Timberlake New Haven cabinetry in painted stone and Emser bamboo tile carried up the wall. The bath showcases white with gray stone and metal accents. The large walk-in closet offers the perfect lit shelving to display the incredible finds from shops around Brookhaven and Buckhead. Down the hall is the perfect guest retreat with a bedroom wall of wood, neutral color palette of bedding and seating, warm wood accents and a guest bath with shower.

Take the elevator to the terrace level and there you will find a show-stopping drafting office complete with glass sliding doors. Exquisite built-ins in espresso and puck lighting add just the right amount of storage and ability to showcase treasures and artwork. With a full-height locker drop zone in the hallway leading to the garage, the ability to hide recreational equipment, coats and so much more allow clutter to be hidden and high design to stand out.
