Border Estate (Atlanta, Ga) 12 photos

It was a real privilege to work on this one of a kind Estate home with Land Plus Associates and a top Landscape installer. Apart from renovating the exterior facade of this amazing historic Italian villa matching the aged stucco and adding Limestone panels, we were honored to work in so many different areas doing different types of renovation and new construction, adding many elements to make it even more spectacular than it already was! You know it's a special place when you feel like you're in a remote, secluded forest, but actually you're only 10 minutes from Downtown Atlanta!
