The Atlanta White House
Builder Fred Milani selects Timeless for columns, decorative
capitals, dentil moulding and balustrades.
Builder Fred Milani Selects Timeless
When builder/developer Fred Milani began construction on his dream home, a scaled-down version of the White House, he chose Timeless Architectural Reproductions to supply the interior and exterior columns, pilasters, capitals, roof top balustrades and dentil moulding that grace this home’s impressive exterior and interior.
The property includes the main residence, a two-story garage, guest quarters and a backyard pool house. The thirty-six room home is nestled amidst stately homes and 1970’s era subdivisions in DeKalb County, Georgia.
The Original White House Inspires Iranian Immigrant
The Atlanta White House is impressive from the moment you walk up the rolling driveway, greeting the massive two-story Ionic style columns with Scamozzi decorative capitals. Built to roughly one-quarter scale of the original inspiration, the 16,500 square foot home has thirty-six rooms in all, including six bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.
A native of Iran, Mr. Milani moved to Atlanta in 1979, met his wife and raised their two children in Snellville. Inspired by his adopted country and his love of beautiful architecture, the Milanis love to say they “live in the White House”, albeit the Atlanta one!
On the main floor of this three-story home is the “Oval Office” complete with a hand-carved replica of the Lincoln desk. An 80 seat banquet hall and movie theater with lush leather seating and a formal dining room creates a truly majestic living space. The Milanis’ version of the Truman balcony, easily the most recognizable feature of the original, overlooks a twenty-fix by sixty foot pool and pool house.
True to the original inspiration, Timeless also custom designed and manufactured the intricately detailed exterior dentil moulding used on all three structures.
Timeless Cambridge Balusters “A Finishing Touch”
The rooftop level of this exquisite home was crowned with Timeless Cambridge balusters. Hand cast and fin- ished, the Cambridge baluster closely mirrors the original home of our Presidents. The balusters were installed in both straight and radius application on the main house, the adjoining guest suite and the pool house.
