212 15th Street has a long and important history for Ansley Park. This classic home has had several major renovations. The original structure dates back to around 1920.
In 1971 Henri Jova of Jova/Daniels/Busby completed a timeless renovation for Arthur Montgomery. In the below article from House Beautiful in 1971, Henri Jova is quoted as saying “The charm of the high ceilings and space in this house win you over initially. At today’s construction costs, we couldn’t reproduce the same feeling in the same house. You would have to settle for a conventional house and lose the lifestyle and convenience this old house offers.”
Upon entering the foyer, you are struck by the floating staircase with invisible risers that connect all 3 levels of this gracious home. There is also another rear staircase that accesses the two-car garage, bedroom/sitting room and downstairs storage. The largest space on the ground floor is the Living Room that divides easily into multiple areas and is detailed with oak beams. The beams run the length of the house and continue to the exterior – among the many lovely organic architectural details. The living room has two fireplaces. Adjacent to Living Room is small dining area overlooking gardens and open to bar/butler’s pantry. Other rooms off the foyer include the Library and Dining Room – each with its own fireplace. The library has floor to ceiling bookcases and beautiful detailing. The Dining Room’s hallmark is remarkable cloth lined walls and crystal chandelier. Don’t miss the silver/china closet. Large chef’s kitchen opens to sitting area and has abundant storage, desk area, island, etc.
The top floor has three bedrooms each with its own private bath, walk-in closet and fireplaces. The master suite is a luxurious oasis with two fireplaces. This suite occupies the west side of the house with bedroom, lounge, spa-like bathroom, and separate his and hers closets. Two elevators service this home. One goes to all three levels and is convenient to the Master. The other is oriented or servicing the kitchen, parking and storage.
The basement is filled with treats and surprises. At the bottom of the stairs, there are three options – enter the gentlemen’s office/gun room to the right, turn left towards French doors that open to garden, or continue straight towards utility/laundry space. The basement has two full bathrooms. A wet bar services the sunken conversation area – which is centered on brick fireplace and include media projector. Arched doorways lead to the wine cellar (100 case capacity) and sunroom. The sunroom connects back to the main living room via spiral staircase.
The garden offers multiple practical and playful spaces. Throughout the day you will find many places for sun or shade. Don’t miss the stone covered patio off of the sunroom and the meandering pathway behind the garage. From back to front, you will find the Rose Garden, a pool, an outdoor bar are all connected to the house with a lovely ellipse shaped trellis.
