Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Harcrest Homes, LLC for winning a Gold OBIE in the Single Family Builder – Detached (Builds 1-25 Homes/ Year) -$700,000 to $799,999 category for a new home at Sterling on the Lake. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

This home was custom built for this buyer. They wanted casual living spaces with natural materials and sophisticated elegance. Throughout this home are natural timber beams, high ceilings and wooden ceilings. This family loves to cook, thus chose upgraded cabinets, appliances and finishes. The stone hearth provides a cozy feel to the family room.

This family also wanted to take advantage of the beautiful views with screened porches and a wood-burning fireplace on the deck. The owner’s bath is an oasis with a stepless shower and open entry. The tile selection completes the natural style these homebuyers love. The home studio provides a craft room with wonderful storage. Secondary bedrooms, an entertaining kitchen, wet bar and family room on the terrace level complete this two-story home.
