About the Showhouse
The 2021 Southeaster Designer Showhouse is French architecture with an ode to Art Deco. The new 8.000- square-foot residence with a pool was custom-built by Benecki Homes. Benecki Homes brought together a collaboration of the best artisans, craftspeople, land planners, interior specifiers and architects in the Southeast to create TUXEDO AT THE PARK. The home, which has five bedrooms, five full baths, three half baths and a three-car garage, is situated on a half acre across from Atlanta’s beloved Chastain Park.
Curvaceous ceilings, custom tile, fluted detailing and Venetian plaster walls, ceilings, stairs and moldings strike the balance between the home’s French Art Deco aesthetic and transitional interiors with texture. Source selected luxurious interior finishes, such as European white oak flooring, French limestone, marble and onyx. A stucco exterior and limestone surround leads to the steel front door.
The residence is an entertainer’s dream. The main level features a modern open floor plan with a salon, paneled study, dining room, kitchen with an island and barrel vault ceiling covered in subway tiles, a laundry room and a mudroom. The home’s livable, functional design includes custom his and her closets in the master suite, a butler’s pantry set off with an iron screen, and an upper level featuring four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a laundry room and a playroom.
Folding glass walls fully open the pool lounge to the pool and backyard with artificial turf for active lifestyles. A bar, game room with a billiards table, golf simulator lounge, gym and TV room are among the spaces in the finished basement built for play.
The courtyard-style layout and the combination of arched steel windows, clerestory windows in the stair hall, transoms and circular windows provide an interplay of light that gives the home its airy nature. Green serves as a cohesive color throughout the showhouse, which will feature the work of the Southeast’s top interior designers.
