Sweet Bottom Plantation - No. 13 The Battery

Sweet Bottom Plantation - No. 13 The Battery


This is one of two Charleston style homes that Greg Mix designed in the Sweet Bottom Plantation subdivision north of Atlanta in Duluth, Georgia.

This red brick home is a reproduction of number 13 on The Battery, right on Charleston Bay. However in this case the plan has been flipped and laid out inside to suit the modern lifestyle. As you can see in the photos it contains a double spiral stairway. The three car garage is on the ground floor as well as the front entry, study, guest room and a pool bath which exist directly onto the pool area in the back yard. The main living areas are on the next level up or the first floor. This level includes the family room, living room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen. The third level or second floor contains the master suite and two additional bedrooms.

The current owners have furnished the house beautifully and built private Charleston style gardens to the side and rear.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Focal points aren't just for bigger spaces. Though this very formal traditional front garden isn't strictly an alleyway or a passageway, I think its features gives us clues on how to use evergreen planting in narrow areas. The topiary evergreens at different heights give great structure to the space, while the bright-colored deciduous tree gives a focal point at the end of the brick pathway. In an alleyway a focal point can be essential — you need something for the eye to settle on.

You may consider doing one or more areas of a special hardscaping material; this is likely honed or tumbled marble (so it wouldn't be too slippery). I do not like it with this brick (similar to Old Chicago) - they don't work well together and fight texture-wise.
