This past weekend some girlfriends and I spent the weekend exploring and enjoying the slower pace of the Serenbe community, just south of Atlanta. If you are ever looking for an easy weekend getaway, I highly recommend it! While we were there, we visited the 2015 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Designer Showhouse.
This house is located on Grange Lake in the Serenbe community. Serenbe is a community born to protect the beautiful rural land just outside of Atlanta known as Chattahoochee Hill Country. The first house at Serenbe was built in 2004 and today the community is home to over 400 residents. Serenbe has won numerous awards including the Urban Land Institute Inaugural Sustainability Award, the Atlanta Regional Commission “Development of Excellence“ and EarthCraft named Serenbe the “Development of the Year.” Their four neighborhoods have areas focused on elements of well being-arts, agriculture, health and education. Serene is home to a 25 acre organic farm with a thriving CSA program. They also offer cultural events through their Playhouse, festivals, music events and an Artist in Residence program.
The Designer Showhouse is a French Creole style lakefront home make up of 3,700 square feet designed by architect James P. Curran and built by Monte Hewett Homes. The house features over 10 designers over the 2 floors of living space and the outdoor space. My favorite room was the powder room. With small wood tile on the wall, a vibrant red vanity with marble top and vessel sink and a wall mounted faucet. Designed by Lyndsy Woods, this small space was stunning!
The house is now closed for tours, but I am sure you can find exceptional pictures of it online.
