The couple contacted Atlanta architect Keith Summerour to help renovate the 5,000-square-foot house in keeping with its classic character. “The goal was to take a house that was architecturally charming and make it functional for our family,” Kay says. “I love things that are not so perfect, a bit rough and beat up. So the house was just exactly what I wanted. Everything was great except it just needed additional square footage.”
Summerour’s reaction to the original house? It had “fantastic architecture,” he says.
