Inside Hines Ward’s Atlanta Dream House

Printer-friendly version

“I want to build my final house, my dream house,” and that is exactly what he did. This month’s Atlanta magazine features Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward‘s 15,000 sq. ft. house in his hometown, Atlanta, GA.

Ward, who explained that he was going for a neoclassical style house with a Mediterranean influence, said he “wanted [his] house to be like a W Hotel.” And while Ward’s busy career required him to be away from Atlanta for a majority of the year, he was still able to work with architect David Grace, interior designer Ann Davis, and other talented professionals to make his dream house come alive.

Hines poses against his pool table, which is in the terrace level of his house. This room also includes a weight room, bar, poker room, and television lounges.

Ward always had his family as his main priority and was “always figuring out a way to have his mom and son nearby.”

Ward, who never shies away from expressing his love for his mother, Kim Young-hee, even built an apartment for her on the property so that she would always be nearby. He also told Atlanta magazine that he frequents Buford Highway with his mom for Korean food:
“We head to Buford Highway and go to one of the Korean restaurants,” he says. “I also like Twist . . . really, anything Asian. I would say I’ve probably tried every sushi restaurant in town.”
As  professional athlete, a workout room is imperative.

So this is where he keeps his mirror ball trophy from DWTS

A lot of Ward’s input was put into the design of the house. He had the idea of a double-sided fireplace in the foyer, and came up with the design of his custom stair railings.

All the planning, time, and hard work invested in this house was well worth it; the final product is absolutely incredible.
