With just over 11,000 sq ft of gloriously decorated living space, this has to be one of the most spectacular homes in The River Club development in Suwanee. The home overlooks a lake and the Greg Norman golf course and has five bedrooms and six full baths, with three extra half-baths thrown in for good measure. What makes up the rest of those three levels of extravagant goodness? Let’s have a look.
The “magazine-quality” kitchen is tricked out to the nines, and it reportedly cost $200K to get it that way! (I wonder what the damage on a “book-quality” kitchen would be??) A separate “food prep” room is shrouded in so much sleek dark wood cabinetry that it seems far more appropriate to use it as a vault for storing top-secret files as opposed to a place to perform a task as embarrassingly pedestrian as peeling and deveining jumbo shrimp.
A dark wood-clad staircase descends into the unknown, but I’m willing to bet it’s the typical suburbanite home’s requisite man-cave, which in this case is dark enough to actually feel like a cave. It’s easy to picture the man of the house gnawing on a giant drumstick as he reclines by a crackling fire, happily watching the Super Bowl while basking in the awesomeness of his wife-free party zone. Who needs all that wussy beige carpeting and recessed lighting anyway?? A network room with advanced controls for household systems will especially appeal to well-heeled geeks.
To placate said wife, there are spacious built-ins to store a vast array of baubles and trinkets -- something she’d most certainly have if shopping for a home in this price range. The master bath has the giant bathtub that all women dream of, as well as conveniently separated his-and-hers vanities. If that’s not enough to satisfy her, simply suggest that she sample a vintage from the snazzy climate-controlled wine storage space, which lines an intriguing stone-clad arched hallway that calls to mind some exotic French chateau. The stone archway motif continues out back, flanking a cozy covered outdoor fireplace with a TV that she can keep permanently tuned to reruns of The Martha Stewart Show.
Speaking of the backyard amenities, the saltwater pool with its own built-in spa is really something. When you tire of its elegant infinity edge, just head on over to the adjacent mini waterpark to drop off the kids at the pool there. I’m not really sure what’s up with the giant whale, but something tells me I want a piece of that action.
You really can’t go wrong with this domestic paradise, which makes its $3.59M price tag look that much more like a bargain!
