The 2012 Christmas House by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles opens to the public on Friday, November 16 and runs through Sunday, December 9, 2012. This years featured house is located at 4775 Dudley Lane in Atlanta. The home is open every Thursday through Sunday, with the exception of a few holiday closings. Hours on Thursday – Saturday are from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday’s hours are from noon to 5:00 pm.
Atlanta’s prestigious Chastain Park neighborhood is home to the 2012 Christmas House. The exterior of the home was constructed with stone and brick and the graceful columns and peaked rooflines also add to its curb appeal. The home has an inviting feeling with an updated New England farmhouse style. Multiple entrances to the house will welcome visitors to this comfortable, yet still elegant, home.
For the event, each room of the house has been designed and decorated by various Atlanta designers. The first floor is filled with light and it was built for both entertaining and intimacy. The custom floors and ceilings highlight the detail that went into creating this home. From the kitchen and breakfast room, French doors lead to the tiered pool area which will be sure to impress. In addition to the living, dining, and other traditional rooms of the house, there is also a gentleman’s study and a library.
On Thursday, November 15 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m, there will be a Champagne and Candlelight Opening Night Party. Tickets to this portion of the event are $125 per person.
A few other highlights of the annual Christmas House include: a holiday boutique by Boxwoods Gardens and Gifts, a holiday tabletop display, a showcase of various home products, and ongoing programs and seminars. There will also be a few book signings and a Children’s Holiday Fashion Show.
