Style, function and amazing organizational features combine in neighboring homes to provide luxury living in Green Hills. Designed by Birmingham-based architectural firm Long & Long Design, brought to life by local premier builder Vintage South, and rich with organizational features by The Home Edit, this Wallace Lane home offers easy access to nearby schools, Green Hills restaurants and shops, and Percy Warner Park.
“Wallace Lane has been one of the most popular streets to call home in recent years,” Heard Newman Real Estate Founder and Realtor Lacey Newman says of the desired location. “In fact, Nathan Lyons, founder of Vintage South Development, lived on Wallace with his family until very recently. Since many of the first homes to be redeveloped in Green Hills, pre-recession, are on this street, Wallace Lane is characterized by beautifully remodeled older homes and many homes built within the past 10-15 years.”
Today, we look inside the two newly built homes that share an almost-identical floorplan and finishings. In addition to each home having five bedrooms and six full bathrooms, they also both feature an open kitchen and living space that lead to a central courtyard and covered porch. “These homes are architecturally a little different than most others … a lot of care and attention to detail went into the design, which is structured around a central courtyard,” Lacey explains.
With must-see finishes galore, these homes are showstoppers. Take a look as we peruse each property and identify the shared features as well as the facets that make each home unique.
A spacious and formal dining room encourages entertaining, and so does an open kitchen, which features timeless selections, such as white countertops, painted cabinetry, marble tile backsplash, high-end appliances and a custom hood. A large island, the architectural focal point in both kitchens, sits at the center of the space and offers a place to gather. The kitchens also open to the courtyard via glass-paned French doors.
“The best feature of each of these homes is the kitchen and huge working pantry behind it. We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home and where people are drawn to gather,” Lacey says. “This set up allows for you to have a clean, open kitchen space without compromising on organization and cabinetry. We enlisted the help of The Home Edit to stage this area to show off its full potential, and we were so pleased with the results!”
The simple and timeless design of the kitchen is echoed in the nearby family room. A gas fireplace with a poured plaster mantle and the warm wood floors create a cozy space to relax with the entire family, while the attached breakfast room is also designed to accommodate the everyone.
“This floor plan really offers flexibility,” Lacey says of the design, explaining that, “The large room on the front of the house could be a formal dining room or a music room. The breakfast room could be for formal or casual dining, or an office if you don’t need two dining spaces. The study on the main level has a full bath attached so it could be a second bedroom suite on the main level if you needed it.”
The main-level master bedroom mimics the style of the main floor living spaces, from a design perspective. The spacious bedroom looks out to the side courtyard and features a large walk-in closet with custom shelving and an elegant master bathroom awash with natural light. Dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub and marble shower with antique brass finishes contribute to the luxurious design. Meanwhile, on the second floor, you’ll find four additional bedrooms and four full baths, additional living space and a bonus room.
