About the Showhouse

Situated near Chastain Park, a new 12,000-square-foot residence influenced by a California design aesthetic serves as the sublime 2023 Home for the Holidays Showhouse. 

Castro Design Group, in its first Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles showhouse, partnered with builder Pradera Group and Kit Castaldo Design on a soft modern home with airy spaces for daily living, intimate cocktail parties and large gatherings year-round.

The covered stucco entryway presents a twist on the traditional front porch, leading guests to an oversized steel pivot door that matches the entry’s scale and reveals the stairwell and grand family room.

Abundant windows and overscaled glass emphasize indoor-outdoor connectivity in grand and cozy spaces. A two-story window bank displays the main staircase, which is suspended in dramatic fashion. In the great room, 13-foot-tall bifold doors open the entire wall to the pool terrace. The study beckons with its glass-filled setting and coved ceiling.

Interior finishes such as plaster and cove ceilings speak to clean lines inside and out. The kitchen, designed by Kingdom Woodworks, features dual islands and openness to the great room, with its 15-foot ceilings and a 6-foot fireplace, as well as, to the breakfast room, scullery and butler’s pantry. 

The pool, positioned between the covered porch and family room, also serves as a decorative element in the landscape, which extends to lawn space and trees serving as a natural privacy buffer. A separate outdoor kitchen and fireside porch complete the backyard entertaining spaces with a pool bath tucked into the main floor. 

The full basement, planned with a lounge area, wine room, game room/golf simulator, theater and gym, opens to a courtyard for practicing yoga on beautiful days.

Situated on the second floor, the primary suite with a sitting area offers pool and backyard views. All six bedrooms have ensuite baths and walk-in closets, including his and hers closets in the primary suite.

The low, sloped metal roof and stucco exterior seamlessly ties the home with a porte cochere and attached one-car garage, while a separate three-car garage is outfitted with lifts for additional vehicles.

The showhouse features the talents of the Southeast’s top interior designers for this treasured holiday tradition.
