Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The Harlingen features a charming stone and siding exterior with wood details. This elegant home is ideal for families with older children who desire multiple living spaces. The study is punctuated by a paneled tray ceiling treatment, built-in shelving with lighting and French doors that lead to the cozy front porch. The entryway offers open sightlines to the first floor and is highlighted by classic judges paneling that adds sophistication and elegance. The family room includes memorable architectural elements such as a natural, stacked stone column, dramatic two-story ceiling and wall of windows. The stone fireplace adds to the architectural details, anchoring the space and instantly becoming a memory point with surrounding built in cabinetry, shelving and judges paneling. French doors provide a seamless transition to the outdoor living area. The gourmet kitchen features an eat-in island and built in buffet/wine cabinet, making it an ideal space for entertaining. The adjoining breakfast area has wraparound windows offering natural light.

The owner’s retreat, tucked away on the main floor, includes a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams that provide a focal point for the room, while a separate sitting area with transom windows includes a cozy nook to relax with a fireplace surrounded by a built-in shelving to showcase keepsakes. French doors lead to the patio with an outdoor fireplace. The luxurious owner’s bath offers a welcome retreat with separate vanities, spacious dual head shower and a soaking tub. Behind the rustic sliding barn door is a generous closet with custom-built cabinetry.
The second floor is ideal for teenagers with two bedrooms and a well-appointed retreat with half-wall windows that offer maximum furniture placement and allow light to fill the space. The bonus room is spacious, yet private, with a sliding barn door and room for multiple entertaining spaces, such as a TV room gaming area with built-in bar.

The Harlingen’s open-concept design and unique architectural details make this home a stand out. With open sightlines throughout the first floor and a dramatic two-story family room, this home is spacious enough to accommodate entertaining, yet cozy enough to enjoy quiet moments at home. Unique ceiling details, like wood beams, and features like built-in cabinetry and a buffet elevate the function of these spaces.
