In this weekly feature on Clicks & Mortar, we bring you the most notable or interesting property we can find in the Atlanta metro area. This week’s featured over-the-top property is...
In honor of Veteran’s Day, we bring you a home that’s as American as apple pie. On the edge of the mountainous Chattahoochee Forest in northeast Georgia sits this spectacular chalet-style home. Done in a style I’d call “Rocky Mountain contemporary,” the home’s design vibe is crisp and streamlined but warmed up by six stone fireplaces and lots of bare woods, including custom black walnut floors and doors, floating black walnut staircase, hand-hewn douglas fir beams, and splendid cedar-shake roof.
And did I mention how utterly ginormous this property is??? Tax records indicate a mindblowing tract of more than 1022 acres (glad I don’t have to mow that!), and the house itself comprises 9800 square feet, including four bedrooms, five full baths, and four half-baths. Just in case you find yourself at full occupancy, the uber-fancy “gourment” (so special it has an extra n!) kitchen is equipped with a double oven to handle the extra demand and plenty of eating space to serve up the yum to your gaggle of ravenous guests. You know, the ones you flew in on your private plane via your own personal onsite airstrip! (What-WHAAATTT???)
For those of you with a birthday this month, you’re most likely a Scorpio--and what more do water signs want than to be surrounded by water for maximum relaxation? Well, you’re in luck! You will not believe the jaw-dropping views from the infinity-edge heated gunite pool. This is one of the most amazing pools I’ve ever seen, and it is the jewel in this home’s crown. On extra-cold nights, you can slip into the hot tub for a warming experience. If this isn’t enough water for you, the property is also a mere hop, skip, and a jump from beautiful Toccoa Falls.
Animal lovers will enjoy being so close to nature (duh), but sometimes you just need a little downtime without the family pet nipping at your heels. Well, quite conveniently, this house happens to be just down the road apiece from the Mountain Pet Resort, so you can drop off Fido for some R&R and/or obedience training while you’re vaycaying in luxury. Brilliant idea! (I wonder if they take children too?)
Hungry for a mouth-watering-good deal? Listed at just $6.9M, this home is just the thing to cure your cravings for piping-hot rustic splendor.
