 4 Things We Love About This Home

1. The details. The beauty in this home starts at the front door and continues throughout! The top-notch craftsmanship is evident literally from the moment you pull up to the home. Outside, the beautiful landscaping and Craftsman-style detail immediately draw you in. Inside, the solid oak floors, custom cabinetry and trim work, stained glass accents, natural stone, and one-of-a-kind lighting let you know that you are in an extraordinary home.

2. The kitchen. The chef in the family will want to live in this kitchen! Stainless steel appliances include a five-burner gas cooktop with hidden downdraft ventilation, double ovens, built-in microwave, and warming drawer undeniably make cooking more enjoyable. Two islands give you versatile work space: one is topped with distressed stainless steel, and the other is a granite-topped island with a raised breakfast bar. A walk-in pantry with wood shelving gives you plenty of room to store all your supplies, plus it’s large enough to have a second fridge.

3. The special features. This home has a few features that your typical home doesn’t have! Many of the light fixtures are from Big Chandelier, a lighting retailer here in Atlanta where you can find reclaimed vintage and antique lighting. The terrace level has a custom, climate controlled 3000+ bottle wine cellar, a Swedish sauna, and a guest room with a Murphy bed. The backyard has a stacked stone gas-lit firepit and a custom water feature. And did we mention two huge humidity-controlled storage areas and a cedar closet on the terrace level? You don’t find these top-notch features in just any home!    

4. The exterior. The icing on the cake of this remarkable home is the big, private lot. The home is nestled on .4 acres, a large lot for the area, plus it appears even larger and even more private because of a required buffer zone between the home and the townhomes adjacent to it. The front and back yards are professionally landscaped and extremely well-maintained. The backyard retreat boasts stacked stone walls, a gas-lit firepit, grilling patio with a gas line, and a serene water feature. A pergola in the open grassy backyard houses extra seating. This home is ready for some major entertaining!
