Favorite Things: Ash Street Edition

We all are familiar with “favorite things.” From Oprah’s annual favorite things list to Maria Von Trapp’s infinity for “raindrops on roses,” making a list of your favorite things is like writing your Christmas list, but better. Historic Macon decided to make a list of our favorite things about the four newly constructed Beall’s Hill homes on Ash Street. Obviously, we could talk all day about our favorite things on each of these houses, but we’ve narrowed it down to one favorite thing for each property.

1304 Calhoun Street – Open Concept Plan

There are so many things I love about this open concept space that I don’t even know where to begin. First, let’s talk about the white and gray granite countertops in the kitchen. These countertops enhance the contemporary design features of this home, especially with the added polished brass accents. Second, that light fixture will look amazing with a mid-century modern dining room table, or any table for that matter. Finally, it’s refreshing at times to have white walls to serve as an empty canvas for all the photos, arts, and accents you will add to make this house your home.

932 Ash Street – Kitchen Cabinets

Forget the wood-stained or white kitchen cabinets. These gray cabinets are absolutely stunning. Not only do these kitchen cabinets make a bold statement in the kitchen, but they offer a lot of storage space. Whether you use your kitchen while channeling your inner Julia Child or while dialing your favorite take-out place, this kitchen will easily accommodate.

924 Ash Street – Tile

All of our houses incorporate modern design trends, and this bathroom is no exception with the use of subway tile. This entire house has a more contemporary approach to its design elements, and here in the Master Bath, white subway tile with a darker grout definitely adds to the contemporary aesthetic.

1311 Jackson Street – Porches

Yes, you read that correctly: “porches” as in more than one. There’s the front porch, a side screened-in porch, and a back porch. What could you do with all those porches? The possibilities are absolutely endless. I for one would use the screened in porch for spring cocktail hour, where you won’t have to worry about pesky mosquitoes annoying you. The back porch is a great spot for a grill, and the front porch is definitely a statement piece for all visitors coming through the front door.
