Brightwater Homes Wins Gold OBIE for Sweet Apple Model in Milton

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Brightwater Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Interior Merchandising – Detached Model $800,000 and above category for the Sweet Apple model home in Milton. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The Sweet Apple model home is the true epitome of a modern farmhouse-inspired design with a wraparound front porch and a detached garage with a carport.  The thoughtfully designed home takes on a classic yet practical look and every room is well planned. The exterior porch is spacious enough to host its own gathering and leads to three distinct entrances into the home. The foyer is accented with a shiplap wall and hog pen stair rail, while the dining room is accented by warm ceiling beams. The all-white kitchen is well contrasted with reclaimed wood from the property’s original split-rail fencing and is filled with a wall of windows and floating shelves in lieu of upper cabinets. The island overlooks the family room with sliding doors to the rear and a simple yet elegant fireplace treatment. The dramatic vaulted ceiling of the owner’s suite defines the room and is accented by other thoughtful elements in the bath such as a zero-entry shower and open shelving for towel storage. This home is everything you loved about grandma’s house combined with the best of HGTV, and it’s all set on a site that maintains 50 percent of the original tree canopy!
