Modern Renovation – Fit for a King!

August 20th, 2014
by vanessa

Break out your summer shades because this shiny new renovation just might blind you! This 1960’s spacious ranch (on a fully basement) has been given a sparkling modern renovation fit for a luxury-loving king, queen or ordinary Joe.

The vaulted ceilings and gleaming hardwoods will make you swoon, while the exotic granite in the designer kitchen with it’s Jenn-air appliances will more than likely  transform your nightly TV dinner habit into a Wolfgang Puck 12 course meal.

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

This homes one-level living will make you feel like royalty with it’s dramatic open floor plan, formal dining room, living room and keeping room. You could slip on a pair of your glass slippers and do the Viennese waltz in your dungarees with music turned way up while the kiddos are at school. Or better yet you could soak up some vitamin D in the newly renovated sunroom while you sip tea and commune with nature, pinky finger to the sky.

Oh wait you have a job? You actually have to work to pay the bills? Not to worry, the moment you get back home you can let your stress slip away while you enjoy a relaxing shower in 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, big enough for you to have a nervous break down while the in-laws are visiting but if you really want to get away just step into the separate laundry room where and breath through your noes then out through your mouth as you say “OOOooooommmm….” while you do the laundry.

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
