W Wesley Buckhead Residence

About W Wesley Buckhead Residence

Bringing their experience of living in Asia for fifteen years, and previously Australia, these well traveled new Atlanta homeowners and their two children became excited about renovating an existing home in Buckhead that was featured in the film “Driving Miss Daisy.”


The 1970’s house was dark and compartmentalized and the vision was to keep the vintage appeal but infuse it with an international and more contemporary aesthetic.   The view to the gardens and pool were lost in a sea of walls.


An entire new wing was built onto the existing home, adding a new wide hallway, mudroom, laundry, powder room, garage, staircase and upstairs bedroom. The existing garage was converted into a living room, opening the view to the garden with new eight foot French doors and a finished concrete floor. The existing master bathroom and kitchen were enlarged to add a butler’s pantry with a charging station & study area.

The new kitchen is the focal point for this young family. Custom sliding walnut and bronze framed doors are now centered on frameless glass panels extending out to the pool area with a custom designed range by Pipa Bradbury Design, built by Ventahood.   

The powder room has a slab of Asian statuary marble effortlessly floating off the wall with faucets extending from antique mirror panels. Fabulous rainwater drums were transformed by local artesian Kevin kopior iwc Scanlon for pendants in the living room, and an old NY subway lamp brightens in the mudroom. Master bathroom antique gold pendants shine against the white marble surroundings.
