In today’s luxury homes, the kitchen is so much more than just a place to cook meals — it serves as a central hub that fosters connection between friends and family. It’s not just about the convenience of a well-designed workspace or the joy of cooking with top-of-the-line equipment; it’s about the way it brings people together. It’s where family members come together to start their day with a morning coffee, where people do homework while others prepare dinner, and where friends congregate during social gatherings.
Kitchens were once relegated to the back of the house, out of sight from guests and family gatherings. Contemporary design has transformed this essential space, bringing it front and center by seamlessly integrating it with other living areas. By opening up walls and creating expansive kitchens with island bar seating, adjacent breakfast nooks, the open concept layouts in today’s contemporary homes transform this space into a natural spot for moments of connection.
This recently-listed six-bed, six-full, and one-half-bath East Cobb estate truly delivers on this vision of the kitchen acting as the vibrant heart of a home. Boasting nearly 5,300 sq. ft. of living space and situated on a half-acre in the exclusive Piedmont Cove community in Marietta, GA, this home is a gleaming example of how a well-designed chef’s kitchen can enhance one’s living experience.
Boasting white quartz countertops, beautiful white cabinetry, and high-end stainless appliances will equip home chefs to prepare restaurant-worthy meals, while abundant cabinetry and a walk-in pantry provide storage perfection. The spacious island with built-in bar seating serves as the heart of the kitchen, providing ample space for preparing meals and acting as a communal space for hosting gatherings or enjoying casual meals with family. Windows bathe the kitchen in natural light, plus an open layout seamlessly blends the kitchen with the spacious living room.
High ceilings, rich hardwood floors, and an abundance of natural light can be found throughout the rest of the main level of the home. Also featured is a living room with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, a formal dining room, ensuite bedroom, and a home office, all thoughtfully designed to cater to modern lifestyles.
Upstairs, the primary ensuite bedroom features trey ceilings, a luxurious spa-like bathroom, and a roomy walk-in closet. Three additional ensuite bedrooms on this level provide both comfort and convenience, each designed to accommodate the unique needs of a modern family.
On the terrace level, a flexible space can serve as an additional bedroom, a versatile office, or a cozy living room. The terrace level also houses a home gym, wet bar for entertaining, and plenty of storage space.
