Married on a frozen Colorado lake at the start of 2018, Zach and Jenny Sabo wanted their new home to capture their wondrous spirit and provide conveniences while living in Atlanta.

“This place is perfect for us right now, largely for the location,” Zach said.

Their Ashton Woods townhouse in Brookhaven is only a short distance from Jenny’s office, a variety of restaurants and has a green space for their pets.

Although Zach has an eye for interior design as a real estate agent, he said his wife was the mastermind behind blending their adventurous and relaxed tastes in a refined decor.
