The home at 820 Malvern Hill in Alpharetta, Georgia is a brilliant blend of traditional elegance and modern design. French provincial inspired architecture rises majestically from the perfectly manicured landscape, immediately creating strikingly impressive curb appeal. The stucco construction is accented by stacked stone with stone steps leading to the formal front entrance. The arched ceiling of the front porch, embellished by a large arched window over the French door entrance, extends beyond the porch and into the formal entry rotunda providing a unique architectural continuity.
Once inside, the aesthetic appeal of the home is firmly established. Dark hardwood floors extend beneath the arched ceiling of the foyer and into a salon seating area with a cathedral ceiling with curved corners, which separates the foyer from the great room. The great room rests on a tile floor beneath a traditional cathedral ceiling. Visitor’s eyes are drawn through a large arched window of identical dimensions to the front entrance flanked by paneless glass doors for a view of the expansive rear grounds and patio.
Wide transitions on either side of the foyer lead to the formal dining room to the left and the formal living room to the right. The natural light captured by the large window in the dining room illuminates the hardwood floors and elegant crown molding and chair rail. The living room features a black marble fireplace between custom built-ins beneath a vaulted ceiling and also displays beautiful crown molding with a chair rail and painted wall panels.
