This secluded Sandy Springs estate sits high on a hill nestled amongst two lush acres. Recognized as a certified natural wildlife habitat, this magical property was featured in the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s 2019 Gardens for Connoisseurs Tour.
The gated and sweeping front lawn leads to the circular driveway approaching this impressive sand-blasted brick home adorned with eight large pillars across the front of the house. Guests are welcomed with a double staircase outside as well upon arrival inside the stunning white marble foyer of the main residence.
Space is not an issue for this six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathhouse. With multiple living areas, this 2-story home features a soundproofed music room, the owner’s suite plus three additional bedrooms upstairs, a second owner’s suite on the main level as well as a partial basement with a second kitchen that is the perfect in-law suite. California Closets are in all closets as well as multiple cedar closets throughout the home.
Custom cabinetry and built-ins, stained glass, recessed lighting, unique tile floors as well as ornately decorated glass over entryways are a few of the many details that can be found peppered throughout the house.
The bright designer kitchen features Allmilmo cabinetry, side by side Sub-Zero refrigerators, Thermador appliances, and granite countertops. The main island features a sink as well as space for seating across the front. The butler’s pantry has plenty of counter space and storage and connects the formal dining room and kitchen for convenience.
The entire back of the house features floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors in, day or night. The two-story conservatory at the rear of the house provides a premier view to a perfectly manicured private back yard adorned with a walk-out heated saltwater pool, expansive patio, and pool deck. The incredible outdoor amenities don’t stop there. With access to a gazebo, tennis court, and chicken house via an oversized brick patio on the left side of the home, or by taking the stone stairs up to the pool area and past the recirculating waterfall, this is an outdoor paradise steps from the main residence.
The stacked stone walls surrounding the pool and patios mirror the stonework at the home’s front entrance. Be sure to follow the path from the charming faux pool house through the natural yard beyond the tennis court. From this vantage point, you can also preview the adjacent 1-acre lot that is available for purchase in conjunction with this home to expand the property footprint.
Additional features include a separate laundry room, a new roof in 2021, and a generator serving a portion of the main level. Potential homeowners will appreciate this incredible location in the Heards Ferry Elementary School district and easy access to all the new dining options in Sandy Springs.
