Atlanta House Addition

Romantic Craftsman

Location: Berkeley Park (Atlanta)

The Challenge

Step One:  Buy a tiny Atlanta bungalow in a great location (Berkeley Park) for raising a family. Step Two: Figure out what to do to expand the bungalow for the family to come.

The Solution

Combining resources with Atlanta architect David Price, this was not up or out, but rather up AND out.  The Atlanta bungalow deceives you from the curb — add some nice Craftsman detailing — but still charming and diminutive.  But 30 paces down the driveway (or 30 paces through the house) and one discovers the addition and a paradise of a dining kitchen with a huge walnut island, and up the stairs to the left one finds the master suite retreat.  Best of both worlds, old and new seamlessly blended. Onto Step 3: Start family.
