Burfitt Residence

”An English Manor”

Located on a steep, 2 acre parcel of land in a desirable Buckhead, Atlanta location, the site plan for this home was created in close collaboration with the architect. 

Land Plus prepared a "protocol" plan prior to the creation of the architectural footprint for the home. This conceptual site plan was based on the existing site conditions and assisted in developing the most advantageous home site and approach to the home while minimizing the disruption to the existing site topography and tree cover. This protocol plan not only illustrated the most appropriate form for the proposed residence, but also indicated the proper solution for the guest parking and garage access and the opportunity for the desired site amenities. The result is a setting that gives the timeless impression that the house and grounds have always been there. 

Recognizing the impact of the site's natural, diagonal slope orientation, existing tree cover, and negative neighboring views, Land Plus created an organic design for the rear yard and pool area which blends seamlessly with the topography. The grounds appear as an extension of the home through the use of the same rich materials which were used on the residence. 

The result is a peaceful oasis in an urban woodland setting.
