Unique opportunity to build a custom, environmentally friendly, mass timber home in the trendy Virginia-Highland neighborhood. This 5,700-square-foot home with a 1,572-square-foot carriage house will be located across the street from Orme Park. It will be only the fourth building and second home in Atlanta constructed with mass timber, the newest technological advancement in construction materials. Mass timber is manufactured with thick, compressed layers of engineered wood, capable of remarkable strength, thermal efficiency and beautiful coloring. Described as West Coast Classical it will be primarily constructed of cedar and redwood posts and beams. Floor and roof plates will be constructed from cross-laminated timber. This residence’s features include six bedrooms and eight total bathrooms, a rooftop garden and patio with amazing view of the Midtown and Downtown Atlanta skylines, a garden courtyard, a dining room with a cathedral ceiling and windows, an office, a large media room, a gym, space for an elevator, a guest house, and a two-car garage. Architect Tate Lauderdale states, “This method of construction is a solution to climate change issues and the need for low-carbon solutions. Popular on the West Coast and even in Scandinavia, mass timber homes use environmentally friendly engineered wood and give homes a light and modern ambiance.” The discerning buyer will have the opportunity to live in town in a convenient area while showing his commitment to zero-carbon living. When completed, this home will be a showplace.” The buyer will have the chance to decide on finishes such as flooring, cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures, etc. They will have additional options to make the house their dream residence and will have the opportunity to work with Builder Vince Longo of Longo Custom Homes and Lauderdale to further customize the home. Longo, recently named “Builder of the Year” by the Greater Atlanta Builder Association, said, “We are excited to lead the way for high-end mass timber residential construction in Atlanta.” Home will have 15' ceilings on first and second floors.
