Midcentury Modern Renovation – Fit for a King!

August 20th, 2014
by vanessa

Break out your vintage cat-eye shades for this one! The shiny new renovation just might blind you! 3633 Castaway Ct. is a Mid-Century ranch that has had a stunning modern renovation fit for any mid-century modern, luxury-loving king, queen or ordinary Joe.

You’ll flip your wig staring at the vaulted ceilings in the place. The hardwoods will make you swoon and the exotic granite in the renovated designer kitchen with it’s Jenn-air appliances just might transform your cooking into Julia Child’s if you let them.

Speaking of cooking, got ankle-biters to feed? Well, after you fill their bellies with brioche, you can send them off to one of the award-winning schools nearby – Evansdale elementary, Henderson or Lakeside!!

You’ll feel like royalty when you stretch out in this place. This homes one-level living had more space than Westminster Abbey. OK, maybe it’s not that big. But the dramatic open floor plan, formal dining room, living room and keeping room ) could have you doing a Viennese waltz in your dungarees.

Wait until you see the sunroom! It’s the perfect place for high tea. You can commune with nature, pinky finger to the sky, and look out over a level manicured lawn as big as the Mall on Washington.  When you step into one of the exquisitely designed, spa-inspired bathrooms, you’ll never want to leave.

The master suite features an oh-so-fabulous walk-in closet for all your cool royal threads. And, of course, there is a separate utility and laundry room where the servants can wash your soiled linens. (Servants not included.)

All jokes aside, this place is a wonder to behold. But don’t take our word for it. Give us a call and see it for yourself.

East Cobb Modern Ranch

August 5th, 2014
by vanessa

This is it folks, a modern ranch on a full basement with dynamite schools. Some might call it a unicorn. Others don’t know what words to use. Nevertheless, this mythical creature (or home) has magically appeared, and guess what? IT’S FOR SALE!

Many agents–myself included—tell buyers that homes like this don’t exist. It’s the kind of home that when you see it on HGTV makes you say to yourself, “Where is that house? I want to live there.”  It has everything on your wish list:

  • Modern design elements
  • Great schools
  • One-level living
  • A full basement
  • A huge backyard
  • A two-car garage
  • Storage galore
  • An awesome neighborhood with swimming pool
  • New systems and a new roof
  • A garden gnome

It’s the kind of home you see in those really sappy Zillow.com commercials that make you cry. It’s the kind of home that commercials for Volkswagen and Dyson vacuum cleaners are filmed in.

It’s cooler than cool.

So stop listening to all of us skeptical real estate agents who keep saying that you’ll have to compromise on what you want for what you can afford. Blahblahblah. Go ahead and hit the forward button and tell them you want to set up a showing ASAP. No need to say, “I told you so.”

By the way, Bigfoot was just spotted in the backyard of 184 Millbrook Farm Rd. and he was riding a Centaur. OK. Not really. But there is seriously a garden gnome. (He’s red. Look for him in the front yard.)

Bedrooms: 5 Bathrooms: 2  JUST LISTED for $319,900

A Modern Atlanta Renovation: BEFORE & AFTER

July 29th, 2014
by vanessa

As nostalgic as lovers of mid-century mojo can be, most of us know better than to think that every tarnished relic is worth dragging out of the attic to refurbish. Making a rusty 1950s patio furniture set look like it did in 1952 might make you miss more Perry Mason reruns than you can shake a stick at.

And then, there are the hidden treasures that are more valuable renovated than they were new.

3207 N. Embry Circle is one of those hidden treasures. Under the worn exterior lay a solid frame upon which something spectacular could be built.

That’s where the Domo Realty team came in. Our goal was to bring lovers of unique mid-century renovations something they’d want more than a new bullet planter from Décor-Décor. And we did it! The finished product is the bee’s knees of mid-century comfort and style.

Let’s start from the beginning with curb appeal, or in this case, the lack thereof.

Being the mid-century home resurrectionists that we are—yes, I just made that word up—my team and I gave Bob a sorely-needed upgrade and a cleaner, more respectable look by replacing the existing roof with new 20 year architectural shingles and adding a few fresh coats of modern designer paint.

As you can see, the family room was a tremendous dud. White walls, bare and pale, stood between the kitchen and the living/dining room space making the house feel cramped and lifeless.

In the kitchen, the room that I consider the crown glory of this lovely abode, we installed a chef’s faucet, a smoky glass tile backsplash, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinets.

And there you have it, folks. With an Elizabeth Montgomery-worthy twitch of our noses and some mid-century renovation know-how, we’ve managed to bring a house that looked like Bob Nope back to Bob Hope at the height of his career.

Casually Cool Mid-Century Modern

July 22nd, 2014
by vanessa

If you’ve been looking for a Mid-Century Modern in Northcrest you’ve probably noticed that there AREN’T ANY because all the cool kids have bought them already!!! That’s right, the Mid-Century Modern homes you have been drooling over have been receiving 1, 2, sometimes 5 offers at a time and are selling faster than you can shake a dead chicken at (I just made that up, the dead chicken part).

But today, my friend, is your lucky day because domoREALTY has just listed one of the coolest MCM homes in the ‘hood! 3446 Lori Lane is all that and a bag of low-fat, baked, gluten free potato chips (I made that up too).

This Bad-a** Mid-Century Modern has two, that’s right, TWO added on bonus rooms. Including the sunroom with its massive wall of windows. This room would be perfectly suited for any aspiring artist or perhaps an in-house atrium if you prefer to garden. Or for the warrior within, turn this extra space into a Tie Kwan Do studio (I know that’s not how you spell it – today I’m alphabetically challenged). The second bonus room is the vaulted dining room that can easily seat over 12 friends and their (uninvited) dates comfortably.

Besides all the extra space this home has the most impeccable downstairs den and modern bathroom you have ever seen! Not to mention the tankless water heater and a secret bomb shelter/ workshop in the basement.

It’s pretty much the dog’s pajamas with its incredible modern curb appeal and Brazilian hardwood floors. But the best part is, you can stick with the original kitchen OR - YOU GET TO design and create your very own dream kitchen!! Isn’t that swell!? If you buy this house domoREALTY would be happy to provide a FREE kitchen consultation complete with subcontractor information so that you can literally have it all.

**** please pardon any typos in this blog as I have been averaging 3-4 hours of interrupted sleep per night thanks to domoREALTY’s latest addition: Sage Reilly Richardson.  See her bio HERE

Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3
Listing # 5321259

Mid-Century Modest Renovation at its finest!!

July 10th, 2014
by vanessa

This 1960′s tri-level home boasts the most spectacular mid-century modern renovation you have ever seen! The picture-perfect kitchen features white shaker custom cabinetry and luxurious cashmere granite that together offset the smoky glass subway tile and an A+ stainless appliance package.

Your heart will skip a beat the second you step over the threshold through the yellow front door and lay eyes on the light-infused living room with its designer color paint pallet, custom art lighting, and provincial oak floors.

What really makes this immaculate home so desirable is its location. It’s situated inside I-285 minutes from the CDC, Emory University, Mercer University, Brookhaven and Buckhead.

At this point, you’re probably asking yourself, “What’s the catch? Why is this 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home priced below $300,000?” Well, guess what? There’s no catch. In fact, it just gets better.

North Embry Circle is a quiet cul-de-sac street with no through traffic and the school district rocks. That’s right. You guessed it. This is in the Lakeside High School District! BOOM! But guess what? There’s more. Are you ready? Are you shaking with excitement and anticipation? This custom renovated beauty has low Dekalb county taxes and no city taxes!

So let’s do a quick recap: This home is totally renovated and conveniently located inside the perimeter near good schools. It’s the entire package (unlike your crazy college ex who is stalking you on Facebook). Seriously, it just doesn’t get better than this for $295,000. Don’t miss this deal. Houses like this don’t come along very often.
