The final home at Lanier Enclave, a 3 custom home infill residential development off Lanier Boulevard in Virginia Highlands neighborhood, is complete. The home was built by Joe Laster with Abraham Properties.
The “southern modern” style of the home is perfect for older Atlanta neighborhoods like Virginia Highlands. The warm brick exterior relates nicely to the traditional tudor homes on the street and it’s stepped massing at the front allows it to fit in nicely with the scale of the 1 1/2 story neighbors. The strong horizontal planes, overhangs, and bands make the home stand out and give its ties to the early 20th century prairie style. The open plan interiors and high ceilings allow for a modern living lifestyle and the large windows bring in an abundance of natural light. We don’t consider this home “modern” or “traditional” but rather a unique blend of the two styles that is appropriate for the southern climate and historic Atlanta neighborhoods.
