In 2017 Summerour Architects, The Garrett Group, Westbrook Interiors, and Planters, Inc. partnered to begin a three-year project which culminated in the creation of a new home on the footprint of the original residence. The totally re-built home was enhanced in discreet and impactful ways. The pitch of the roof was elongated and the exteriors were clad with ornate Indiana limestone and European stucco. The compact, efficient floor plan was designed to ensure that every space is meaningful, with views and resting places focused on impeccable landscaping, parterre gardens, and the lush, secluded central courtyard. This limestone-floored courtyard is artfully concealed behind the stucco walls of the home and opens to the main floor through numerous sets of custom honey-finished oak French doors. With the painstaking work of masterful craftsmen and the application of the finest materials available, the interiors exude simple elegance. The main floor features an oval Entrance Hall, gracious Dining Room, paneled Study, fireside Living Room, chef’s Kitchen with dining area, Butler’s Pantry with laundry, two Powder Rooms, Primary Bedroom Suite with two separate Full Baths and custom walk-in closets, a two-car Garage with Exercise Room. Upstairs from the front staircase you find an Office/Bedroom and Full Bath, plus walk-in closet. From the back hall staircase you enter an upstairs hallway leading to a Half Bath, an Office, a cedar closet, a third Bedroom with an additional walk-in closet and Full Bath. Unique features include Venetian plaster in the domed Foyer and fireside Living Room, antique re-claimed white oak flooring throughout the main floor, Italian marble Baths, Kitchen with custom Morgan Creek cabinets, polished pewter hardware, and re-claimed antique French limestone floor in the 5-piece Versailles pattern, Venetian plaster Kitchen vent hood with inlaid antique French wooden panel. Without a doubt, 2590 Rivers Road has earned landmark stature and will continue to capture the hearts and imaginations of all who appreciate unsurpassed quality and distinctive design located in Atlanta’s finest neighborhood.
