From the moment you drive into the Metropolitan, you know you have arrived at a distinctively designed Townhome community by award winning Architects Smith Dalia. This property is uniquely located in the heart of Buckhead with direct access to GA 400 off the Buckhead Loop. The townhomes offer sweeping views of the Buckhead skyline.

All four levels of the townhome were designed to capture and distribute natural daylight throughout all levels of these amazing homes.

The Architects have designed the townhomes to bring in natural daylight to brighten the entire unit.  There are two uniquely designed entry levels; a drive in parking level and a guest front entry.  Each townhome features a large light well adjacent to each front entry, bringing natural daylight to the lower, parking level below.

The parking level provides a 3 car parking garage, a large open storage area and a separate, large conditioned multi-purpose room.  Residents and guests may ascend through their home via a modern, open stair, or their own private elevator.  The elevator features rich, stained wood walls, contemporary large scale porcelain flooring, and low voltage recessed lighting. It is designed to accommodate a wheelchair.

The main entry features a modern covered area, eight foot glass entry door and transom, and a decorative wall sconce to illuminate the area.  Huge rows of windows flood light into the living spaces.  End units offer additional windows along the entire living and dining areas.

The units feature 10 foot ceilings and eight foot high flush doors with contemporary Schlage “Latitude” lever hardware in a brushed nickel finish. Walls and trim are painted in light, soft, warm pewter; doors in deep rich charcoal grey.  Windows are framed in a deep bronze finish and hardwood oak floors are stained in ebony.  Interior stair and balcony railings are constructed of square tubular steel with a flat steel cap, and are painted to match the charcoal grey doors.

Recessed lighting is provided at every level.  Decorative ceiling fixtures at bedrooms, exterior wall sconces, and accent lighting is included in all the units.

A huge 4’ x 8’ skylight at the epicenter of the seven center units brightens the interiors with natural light. The open, contemporary railing area surrounding the light well at each of the upper levels creates a natural gathering space. The skylight at the four end units is an even larger a 6’ x 8’ size distributing even more light throughout these larger units

This light well features a contemporary, white, textured wood panel wall which extends vertically through the home. Adjustable light fixtures are positioned to graze the wall, accentuating the texture and further illuminating the entire space.
Throughout the two center levels, day light is further distributed through clearstory windows, bringing light into the master bathroom, master toilet room and 3rd floor guest bath.
The main level features several focal points of interest. On the interior units, the living room includes the identical, textured, wood feature wall, installed floor to ceiling along the length of the living area. This modern material is constructed of recycled material and is illuminated with wall washers to accentuate its texture and design. Exterior units feature floor to ceiling windows all along the long wall. The dining area is also surrounding by floor to ceiling windows and features a contemporary decorative light fixture.

The heart of the space features the clean contemporary lines of the inviting and functional kitchen. The kitchen is highlighted with beautiful stained wood flush cabinets, modern quartz counters, sleek, stainless appliances, and modern mosaic tile backsplash extending to the architectural soffit above.  The soffit is clad in the same, beautiful stained wood and is illuminated with recessed lighting. The backsplash is brightened with hidden LED lighting; also hidden by the light rail, a continuous plug strip, eliminates the requirement for unsightly electrical outlets and permits the mosaic design to be a true focal point in the kitchen.  The wood clad soffit also serves to anchor the space between the dining and living areas and is centered on the main living level.

The kitchen also features a huge center work island with counter seating.  The island’s quartz counter is laminated to a full 4 cm thickness for a distinctly modern appearance.  The island features a dramatic, extra deep counter seating along the entire length and is fully clad in the matching stained cabinet wood. The 10’ island length allows for seating up to 5 and is positioned under the base of the light well for family and guests to enjoy the natural light it provides.

Three distinctive finish packages provide options for tile, cabinets, and counters for the buyers to select a uniquely designed and individual finish pallet for their home.

The ten foot high walls throughout provide ample display for artwork. The powder room, with its contemporary floating vanity, polished chrome fixtures, and Toto toilet is discretely located in an alcove. A large pantry, coat closet, and storage closet complete the features at the main level.

The open, wood stair with its metal railing, stained wood treads and contemporary design is highlighted with contemporary shaded wall sconces.

The 2nd level landing and hall overlook the lower level at the large light well opening. This private level includes the master bedroom suite, large study/library/bedroom with full bath, laundry room and ample linen closets.  The master bathroom, off the master bedroom is accessed through a wide pair of sliding doors.   A clearstory window, the full length of the double master vanity, floods light from the light well into the entire area. Another unique feature is the private toilet room, with its own, discrete, window opening to the light well.   The master bath also includes a modern, deep, Porcelanosa 6’ long soaking tub with tiles face and surround  and walk-in shower.  The large, 4’ x 5’ shower features beautiful mosaic tile flooring,  square shower drain,  recessed niche,  and wall tile extending to the ceiling.  The modern, polished chrome fixed and hand shower in a sleek, frameless, glass enclosure complete the features in the master bathroom.  The bathroom finish option packages offers floor and wall tile options for buyers to create their own unique design.

Sleek, contemporary polished chrome plumbing fixtures, Toto toilets with duel flush and soft-close seats, modern vanity lighting fixtures, wall mirrors and accessories are featured in all bathrooms.

The third level features two terraces, and a huge, open bonus media space, perfect for large gatherings. It has direct access to the large, covered terrace through oversized sliding glass doors.

There is also a separate wet bar area with built-in millwork and counter seating overlooking an oversized window. The bar provides a stainless steel bar sink, under counter ice maker and under counter refrigerator.  An additional bedroom and bath opens onto the second terrace creating the perfect option for a home office.

Aggressively confronting deteriorating cities and urban sprawl, SDA’s reputation has broadened to design honoring the context of history and place that is also sustainable. Many SDA projects have helped transform decayed neighborhoods into vibrant communities. SDA was launched in 1987 from the shared vision of Markham Smith and Tom Dalia, who believed that responsible architecture could be a catalyst for positive community change. Their professional beginnings in the historic city of New Orleans offered a unique opportunity to produce high-profile historic preservation projects, which translated to the Atlanta streetscape. Smith Dalia has grown its staff by 25% since 2012. It has received 23 design awards in the past 5 years alone, including the rarely-awarded Georgia Trust Chairman’s Award for excellence in historic preservation, for Piedmont Park's "Greystone" project. SDA's noted restorations in Piedmont Park returned a treasured icon to midtown Atlanta. Smith Dalia’s long-term links with City government, urban planners and developers, affordable housing agencies and neighborhood groups serve to effectively navigate disparate agendas and to realize even complex urban renewal plans. One of the first firms to undertake large-scale adaptive use of industrial buildings in Atlanta, SDA has developed substantial expertise in this sub-discipline, with a consistent sustainable focus. The Firm’s central tenet of sustainability is fostered through a comprehensive menu of in-house sustainability services. SDA offers complete LEED consulting and administration in addition to energy modeling, audits and educational seminars. Elements of common-sense sustainability are found in every Smith Dalia design, and the majority of its architects are LEED AP's. SDA’s focus includes the affordable housing and non-profit market, embracing challenging funding mechanisms while restoring a human face to these projects. Smith Dalia's award-winning programs have de-institutionalized traditional expectations of affordability, and have enhanced the quality of life for many disadvantaged persons.?
