Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Jim Chapman Fine Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the $700,000 to $799,000 Single-Family Builder – Detached (Builds 50+ Homes/Year) for One River Place in Sandy Springs. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The exquisite two-story brick and shake manor home features a quaint, fenced tumbled brick entryway showcasing gas lantern columns and a poured aggregate driveway. The front stain-grade door with covered entry is a gateway into this charming master-on-the-main home that provides convenience and comfort for its aging-in-place buyer. The wainscoting-lined foyer draws you into the family room, which showcases a lovely constructed ceiling treatment. The gourmet kitchen, spacious breakfast area and owner’s retreat spill out onto the covered porch and private, tumbled brick outdoor living area featuring an outdoor spigot and gas connection for ease of watering plants and grilling with family and friends.

The eight foot solid core interior doors and wrought iron balustrades provide the quality benchmark for this well thought out plan. The owner’s retreat features a spacious frameless shower enclosure with shower seat, shampoo deck and full tile surround. The large secondary bedrooms with walk-in closets offer plenty of space for home offices and visiting children and grandchildren that can enjoy their own private retreats.
