ow about a little break from the Christmas rush in the form of a “house crush” post. The home was designed by Atlanta architect Norman Askins and built by Highland’s builder Tommy Chambers. The use of uneven siding, rock, cedar shakes and old barn timbers creates the most beautiful mix of materials and add so much visual interest to the home. The stone path leads to the home’s courtyard entry and field stone patio. I really love the high roof pitches that add such a sense of drama and resembles the slopes of the mountains beyond. The drive to the home crosses over a small stone bridge and winds down a gravel drive lined with beautiful plantings of boxwood and hydrangea–two of my favorites. The beautiful curb appeal of this home makes me wonder what is inside … maybe someday they will invite us to see!
I hope you enjoyed this little Christmas break–now back to the Holidays.
