Swann Wynd Bridge House: 2016 Home of the Year

Our Home of the Week, Chattahoochee Hills, Ga.’s Swann Wynd Bridge House, is in a wooded setting on an outcropping in the bend of a small creek. An attached footbridge crosses the creek and, together with the house, anchors a pedestrian, cobblestone road lined with houses inspired by the character of English hamlets in the Cotswolds. The home is a 2016 Platinum Best in American Living Awards winner for One-of-a-Kind Custom or Spec Home, 3,501 – 4,500 square feet and the 2016 Best in American Living Awards Home of the Year!

The design of the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath house offers the full range of homeowner experiences on the small one-tenth-acre lot, while also serving the pedestrian scale of the community.

The design combines efficient space-planning with generous details, such as an open-stair hall, 12-foot vaulted ceilings, numerous large windows and tranquil outdoor spaces.

The 2,475-square-foot house (with a 1,168 square-foot finished basement) is inspired by English countryside living but crafted with local materials. Read more…
