Nan Haverty sells the HGTV Green Home in Serenbe!

Nan Haverty sold the HGTV Green Home at Serenbe!  She is a co-founder of the Serenbe community nestled in the woods of the Chattahoochee Hill Country, recently incorporated into its own city, and now recognized as the greenest city in the United States.

I went down to shoot the house right before Christmas and was so impressed!


The idea behind the home, designed by Kemp Hall Studios, was to create a "modern farmhouse."


This is the formal entry.


I love these stairs.  They reminded me of the stairway in the vampire's house from Twilight (amazing modern home).


The kitchen is located in the heart of the home.  The cabinets are made of Hickory wood and were constructed in Atlanta.  The kitchen was designed by interior designer Linda Woodrum.  The dining area flows seamlessly into the living room.


The tile is a mixture of travertine and glass, and the floating display shelves make the space really interesting (see right side of this photo).


I love the wood slat walls here...


and all the natural light from the sliding glass doors that open to an outdoor sitting area.


This is a view from the porch into the kitchen.  Sliding doors throughout the home make it feel much larger than it is and make it an indoor/outdoor space.


The patio off of the kitchen offers an open air space for grilling and eating.


To the left you can see the doors to the kitchen, and to the right you can see a large family room.


I love the fireplace in the family room, because on a day like today you could have the doors open and the fire going.  It serves as both a glassed in and open porch.


This orange study located on the main level is right up my alley.  I love the interior design.


The master bedroom is located on the main level.  It opens to a fenced in area with lounge chars and the cutest dog house I've ever seen.

Can you see Nan's cute little dog, Channing, who joined us for the photo shoot?

He got tired and decided to take a snooze in this custom-built dog house.


Finally we end up in the master bath with a walk-in dual shower and Carrera marble.

HGTV01This bedroom is located upstairs...


and this art area/children's work station is built into the hallway leading to an additional bedroom.


This cool bunk room is at the other end of the hall.  Since I was curious, I climbed right up to the top up there, where there was a tv with a PlayStation, two beanbags and of course the pail attached to a string for snacks.  I got so jealous.  I would love to hang out up there!
