Throwback Thursday - Camp Boxwoods

I'm going through my old magazines again and I remembered this house from the past - particularly the screened sunporch - which I loved.

At the time of publication, the owners' names meant nothing to me as I wasn't aware of Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts in Atlanta, Georgia.  Over time, I've become familiar with it (from a distance). So, now I know this home was purchased as a 1970s ranch style home and re-imagined by the creative owners of the gift shop, Dan Belman and Randy Korando. It's now a three-storey Queen Anne Victorian.

Among the first of the projects was the addition of the curved veranda and front foyer below.

Hand painted floor.

The garage turned living room ceiling was vaulted and became this cosy, welcoming space.


The newly built window seat became a cubby for the smallest dog in the family, Muffy.

Love the re-cycled wood planked ceiling in the kitchen.

The attic guestroom was transformed by Randy's appliqued walls using all natural materials such as pinecones, acorns, hickory nuts and honeysuckle vines.

Gorgeous mud room!

The screened porch is my favorite space in the whole house.

And it appears someone else in the family has made it his favorite spot as well.

Then, I discovered this home had been listed for sale in November 2015 for $2.99 million.  See more photos of the listing here.  It is now a 300 acre horse farm.

And it was featured in Victoria Magazine.  Please click here to see more of this lovely home.

Have a great day!
