Aaron Rosenhaft and his daughter, Samara, were out selling Girl Scout cookies when they stumbled across what would become their family’s next home. They peeked inside the vacant Sandy Springs house and were surprised to see a pool and hot tub inside the 1970s contemporary house.
“It has so much character itself,” said Aaron’s wife, Sugandha Rosenhaft.
The home was uninhabited for 10 years and needed mold remediation, so Aaron, a general contractor who oversaw the renovations, had to gut key rooms, including the kitchen and bathrooms.
During the six-month project, they also opened the small, boxy spaces to create an open floor plan and created a more modern kitchen, Sugandha said. The kids have their own area to be creative in a loft that overlooks the bright, airy pool room that Sugandha, an art educator, describes as “magical.”
