Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates David Weekley Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Single Family Builder – Detached (Builds 26-100) $800,000 to $899,999 category for The Reserve at Old Atlanta.

The Richwood is a two-story home with an unfinished basement and three-car garage. The home has a stunning exterior elevation composed of stone and brick finishes, as well as natural wood posts on the front porch that add a pop of color to the rich textures of the masonry.

Designed with young families in mind, The Richwood boasts five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one half bath as well as a three-car garage. The entry way is enveloped on either side by a bedroom and study and the latter features an abundance of natural light from large windows overlooking the front porch. By following the sight lines to the back of the home, guests are welcomed into the well-appointed kitchen, family room and dining room as part of the open layout.

The family room’s soaring ceilings and two-story windows encompass the rear of The Richwood, overlooking the wood deck through a triple sliding door that allows for a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor entertaining. The ceiling-level transom windows allow for natural light while maintaining privacy. The gourmet kitchen is ideal for large or small gatherings with the attached dining room and oversized, eat-in kitchen island. The adjacent dining room is flooded with light through two walls of windows.

Steps away from the open main area, the owner’s retreat, with its vaulted ceilings, is illuminated by wall-width and arched windows. The adjoining owner’s bath includes a freestanding, soaker tub and a walk in super shower with two windows, as well as the generous walk-in closet.

The second-floor landing opens to an expansive loft area with a recessed wall for easy furniture placement that can be used as a game room, media room or additional office space. Throughout the home, storage options and space abound, including the built-in backpack rack and oversized utility room. The spacious, unfinished basement leads out to the covered patio, and is adjacent to the tiered backyard.

Designed with young families in mind, The Richwood features a traditional brick and stone exterior with a welcoming porch. Sight lines extend through the home to the backyard offering glimpses of several rooms throughout. In the kitchen, an eat-in island anchors the open-concept design, which flows seamlessly into the dining and family rooms. The rear of the home is defined by its two-story wall of windows, offering stunning views and a flood of natural light.
