Stone Creek Holiday Tour of Homes

Annual event set for December 9


VALDOSTA — Glosson home

A Christmas tree decorates every room at the home of Janet Glosson at 4400 Triple Oak Drive, including a whimsical snowman tree on the back porch. Unexpected items decorate some of the themed trees. A collection of vintage bulbs is displayed in glass jars in the kitchen.

Joel Bedgood and Southern Superior Homes built this 3,000-square-foot Craftsman cottage home on .45 acre, offering four bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths.

The front yard features two stately live oaks draped in Spanish moss. Brick accents the walkways.

The interior is a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings, many of which are family heirlooms. Antique architectural details are used as design elements throughout the home.

The home is dressed with an abundance of molding, raised and tray ceilings, and a gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling brick surround in the great room. The dining room boasts a unique orthogonal tray ceiling with accent lighting. Hardwoods cover the floors throughout the main living area.

Green, gold and red colors dominate the living area. Peaceful Wedgewood blue paired with black and white toile accents the master suite, where a vintage door has been repurposed into a unique headboard. Antique furnishings accent this ovesized master suite.

The kitchen features cherry-stained custom cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Upstairs is a bonus room “man cave” with home theater and music room. A second bonus room/bedroom upstairs is a retreat for her. A vintage wicker cot is the perfect spot to unwind with a good book.

Ward home

Every year during the holidays, the family of Krekoria Sampadian Ward adds a crystal or sterling ornament to the family collection started at their marriage.

Their Federalist-style home at 4249 Wisperwood Circle was built of Old World red brick and sits on one-plus acres. The 6,000-plus-square-foot home offers four bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths.

The front yard is a balanced, symmetrical design to reflect the traditional style of the home. The back yard incorporates a large pool and playscape area for family fun. Hollies, azaleas, roses as well as fig, grape and blackberry plants accent the landscape.

The interior design is Neo Traditional with modern accents. The walls are bathed in a very light, warm gray.

The large kitchen features an island with lots of cabinet storage, GE Monogram appliances, including a wine refrigerator, icemaker, six-burner stove with griddle, three ovens and warming drawer.

The master suite is a lovely room with hardwood floor, a bay of windows overlooking the golf course and lake, matchstick blinds and a door leading to the porch. The master bath has floors, walls, shower and counters of white carrera marble with contrasting dark cabinets and crystal chandelier.

The home also includes a gas fireplace, built-in bookcases in the living room, hardwood floors throughout the downstairs, two-story stair hall, tongue-and-groove wood on walls of boys’ room, granite counters throughout the home, large covered back and side porches with stone floor, and pool with travertine tile stone surround.
