Vincent Longo Custom Builders Wins Gold OBIE for New Smyrna Home

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Vincent Longo Custom Builders for winning a Gold OBIE Award in the Single-Family Builder – Detached (Builds 1-25 Homes/Year) $600,000 to $699,999 category for a new Smyrna home. 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 home is located in one of the hottest locations in the Metro Atlanta area, Downtown Smyrna. The home was custom designed for a small homesite making the building footprint an extreme challenge to overcome. The builder’s goal was to attract the empty nester or young single or family buyer wanting all that the walkable downtown area has to offer.

The main goal was to take the small footprint and somehow provide a comfortable main-level owner’s suite. The home boasts all custom features including the ultra hot 12-foot custom iron window in the study with a wallpapered leather wall adding comfort and the “WOW” factor in this price range. The dining room boasts reclaimed wood beams and a custom-made, iron-and-wood barn door with a custom design. It is truly a showstopper. The forged iron handrail leading from the main floor to the second floor is unheard of in this price range. The home has all the touches of a $1 million home but in the mid-$600,000s.

The home is over 3,200 square feet and another potential 1,600 square feet of space for future growth in the basement. The outdoor living area has a custom, privacy iron railing with custom design privacy metal design and a wood burning fireplace with TV automation. The home has standard AV upgrades including speaker systems inside and out. The home boasts marble counters in the kitchen and master baths and luxury appliances. The marble backsplash accents the beautiful cabinetry perfectly. No stone is left un-turned in this home.

This new Smyrna home is perfectly placed within earshot of the excitement of Smyrna Market Village and its restaurants, shops and beautiful landscape.  This home, although placed on a smaller and rather challenging lot, makes fantastic use of the limited landscape. The extremely rocky terrain was constructed in a way to accent rather than obstruct.
