Buckhead Treehouse: Modern Meets Rustic

Posted on August 7, 2018

Nestled in the trees of Buckhead lies a home architecturally modeled after a Pennsylvania Grist Mill. Soaring walls and windows complete the seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The open floor plan effortlessly carries you from the entry way to the newly renovated kitchen designed by Jane Hollman of Studio Entourage. The natural quartzite countertops and custom cabinetry by Kingdom Woodworks fuse the space impeccably. The industrial twist of the kitchen was inspired by the original grist mill design while the concrete floors generate a bold texture statement, adding to the visual interest of the space.

The abundance of wood gives the home a considerable amount of depth and dimension. When you’re looking to highlight texture, the key is to create contrast against something natural, in this case with wood and concrete. Wood has, and always will be, a popular building material because of the automatic warmth and coziness it emits. Whether it’s traditional or modern, wood works simply because it is a timeless element.



Through the kitchen into the window walled dining space you’ll find an infinity pool on one side of the table and opposite a koi pond. Floor to ceiling windows create an instant focal point all whilst making the room feel larger. Stepping down into the living area you’ll find wide plank hardwoods, high ceilings and a natural stone fireplace. This room allows you to enjoy beautiful rays of sunlight coming in from all angles.

Outdoor Paradise

The outdoor space of this home is not only functional but aesthetically pleasing. Between the infinity pool, screened porch, koi pond and sitting area, the space is multi-functional and relaxing. The comfort derived from being surrounded by nature can help anyone de-stress. This peaceful Buckhead location is simply unparalleled with the private wooded driveway and home surrounded by a breathtaking forest.
