Neelima Kanneganti and her family enjoy taking photos through their two-story bowed wall of windows in their new Johns Creek home as the weather and seasons change.

“Every day is like a changing picture,” she said.

The curved wall was part of a plan by builder Ashton Woods in the new north Fulton County neighborhood. The architectural element gives the great room a spectacular setting during the day and evening, and the family particularly enjoys the moonlight, she said.

When the sun sets, Kanneganti said the view of the trees and sky through the 15 windows looks like an ever-changing painting.

“That’s the highlight of this house,” she said.
