This Atlanta Bungalow was Rebuilt to Match the Original

Rebuilt in the mid-1990s but inspired by the original 19th-century “shotgun” floor plan, this Atlanta abode is high on Southern style.

When the current homeowners purchased this bungalow in 2000, the creative pair knew right away that it would be the perfect place to blend home, work, and play.

Though a fire destroyed the original historic home in the early 1990s, the structure was painstakingly rebuilt by an architect and artist, whose passion for preserving the past is evident in the high ceilings, salvaged wood finishes, and recycled pine floors.


In the main house, twin fireplaces anchor the living and dining rooms, while blue and cream accents add to the soothing atmosphere. The bathrooms are high on style as well, with charming oversize mirrors, vanities repurposed from tables, and large well-loved windows.

Throughout, the couple selected salvage materials and flea-market finds to mix and mingle with French provincial antiques and modern upholstered seating, creating a brilliant blend of fun and function perfect for an active Atlanta lifestyle.

This carriage house, which serves as an at-home office, was designed to complement the main home in both design and function. Out front, an old sugar kettle has been given a sweet rebirth as a pretty pond.

A backyard carriage house completes the property, giving the homeowners a hub for their corporate communications business as well as additional space for entertaining guests.
