Shingled roofs, gables, exposed rafters, and vaulted ceilings are just some classic elements that have stood the test of time. One way to achieve an implied history and sense of grandeur for your new house is to incorporate these, and other old-world elements, into the design.

Set on the Reynolds Plantation, a renowned Atlanta golf and lake community, this Golf Digest Show home by house designer William T Baker features many traditional European elements. Close attention to scale and proportion has enabled Baker to draw these together and create a unified whole.

"This project offers the best of the old world and the new," says Baker. "An emphasis on solid materials and artisanal workmanship creates the feel; but the expansive house also boasts every high-tech convenience."

Blending seamlessly into historic neighborhoods, Baker's designs reflect a renewed interest in modern classicism here in the United States.
