St. Andrews model home by Monte Hewett Homes

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Monte Hewett Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Interior Merchandising – Attached Model $800,000 and above category for St. Andrews. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The Pineland model home is visionary and industry-leading for the Buckhead housing market and the sophisticated Buckhead buyer. It is beautifully appointed with stunning attention to detail. The designer has created a harmonious juxtaposition between traditional, transitional and contemporary styles, creating its own unique, niche style being called Vintage Contemporary Sophistication.

The house features a cool, monochromatic grey/white color pallet that creates a neutral backdrop to the stunning artwork collections, unique furnishings and dramatic architectural features throughout. Special features include the floor-to-ceiling, reclaimed barn wood wrapping the fireplace and powder bath accent wall, custom steel doors and windows on the terrace and main levels, mitered edge quartz countertops throughout, a white-washed brick accent wall in the flex space and a hand-painted accent wall in the dining/living room. Custom kitchen cabinetry is topped with quartz countertops and set off by handmade concrete backsplash tiles. The wine lounge boasts a casual and elegant entertaining/seating area with a wine bar and custom Warhol-inspired artwork, while the dining area exudes drama with its 24 pieces of custom artwork spanning floor to ceiling that greet you as you top the stairs to the main level.

Distinctive furniture in neutral linens and rich leathers, washed woods and iron are contrasted with textural layers of cowhides, gold accessories/lighting fixtures and dramatic artwork creating a casual, elegant sophistication. The master suite has a distressed brick accent wall as a backdrop to the reclaimed wood door headboard and luxurious master bath with its floor-to-ceiling marble tile shower. The same marble flows seamlessly from the bath floor into the curb-less shower in a classic herringbone pattern.
