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...
Take a quick little jaunt up I-75 towards Acworth, followed by a brief 4-mile detour off the interstate, and you’ll be rewarded with this spectacular estate perched on the edge of placid Lake Allatoona. With its stack-stone facade and wood-clad interiors, there is a definite “lakeside lodge” vibe to this place. But don’t underestimate the imagination that went into decorating the 8500 square feet of living space that lies behind those imposing double front doors. Let’s take a look!
This tri-level 6BR/7.5BA home has everything you’d expect in a property of this calibre, and it comes complete with an elevator to shuttle you between floors if taking the exquisitely trimmed stairs seems too mundane. Nowhere is the grandiosity of those three floors more apparent than in the great room, where a ginormous 3-story stone-clad fireplace makes for an awe-inspiring centerpiece. With its antiqued cabinetry, exotic granite countertops, striated hardwood floors, and whimsical tile backsplash, the kitchen is nothing less than a total feast of the senses, with enough patterns and textures to make your head spin.
Upstairs, the master suite has plenty of surprises, not least of which are found in its palatial bathroom. Between the space-capsule steam shower and the homey wood-paneled whirlpool bath, your hygiene routine will be anything but boring. And I could practically live in that walk-in closet!
The terrace level offers a full finished daylight basement chock-full of amenities, including an in-law suite with a full bath, as well as a custom bar and home theater. There’s really no limit to the endless fun you could have in this space. Better yet, take the good times outdoors to the double-slip dock and party deck out back. The deep water lot that this home sits on makes it a dream for boaters and watersports enthusiasts, while more terrestrially-inclined folks and poor swimmers will have a grand old time just kicking back on the deck with a cold beer or iced tea.
At just under $2M, it is entirely possible that this property might not last long. So get it while the gettin’s good!
