Storey Custom Homes on Lake Lanier

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Storey Custom Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Single Family Builder – Detached (Builds 1-25 Homes/Year) $1.21 Million to $1.49 Million category for a custom home on Lake Lanier. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

This custom house has great visual appeal and brings back images from the past. The warmth of the natural alder wood floors, soft colors of the off-white shiplap, fireplaces and beamed ceilings makes you feel at home. One of the biggest features of this home is the family room, foyer and two-story stairway’s alabaster shiplap which sets the tone of the overall house. The white shiplap is offset by the contrast of the dark beams and floors. The kitchen counters have a nice contrast between the sleek modern white quartz countertops and timeless rough sawn espresso beams. One of the best features of this home is it feels very approachable. On the terrace level, one of the best features is the high ceilings and amazing large bar with lap pool perfect for entertaining.

Arriving at this home, guests are greeted by a handsome brick and siding facade. Although unique, the color palette and textures of the exterior make this house a charming lake retreat. While traditional on the exterior, visitors discover a more clean and timeless feel as they enter the home. Openness abounds in this functional and efficient floor plan. Comfort with an organic twist would describe this home well.
